Boxelder bug control

Boxelder BugThese black and orange bugs have dark, oval bodies with many fine red lines on the back. Undersides of wings are red. Nymphs are small, bright red, crawling insects. Boxelder bugs feed on low vegetation and seeds on the ground during the spring and early summer. Eggs are normally laid on the trunk, branches, and leaves of the tree and are found almost entirely on flowering and seed-producing boxelder rather than on male boxelder trees. There is no noticeable feeding or injury to the trees. Boxelder bugs like sunny areas and are attracted to buildings with a lot of southern exposure. Boxelder trees are also referred to as “Golden Rain” or “Golden Lanterns”.

Control

Treating the trunk of boxelder trees in the spring time can slow the progression of large populations. As the spring progresses, treat the young, exposed boxelder bug “nymphs” on the trees to prevent potential large populations and indoor migrations in the autumn.  We recommend a residual such as Tempo SC or Talstar Pro.

  • Apply where pests have been seen or found, or can find shelter
  • Apply to buildings, porches, patios, garages, fences and other areas where pests are found.
  • To prevent infestation, treat the building foundation, walls, and around doors, windows, and soffits where pests are active or may enter or hide; also treat the soil, turf, or other substrates adjacent to buildings.

Inside control can be achieved by vacuuming and screening or sealing doors. The boxelder will die within a couple of days and will not mate.
