Boxelder bugs are pests that are found across North America. These pests can become a serious nuisance in the early spring and summer, when they enter homes and other buildings in huge swarms. Boxelder bugs are named for the boxelder tree, which provides food for the females of the species. During the winter months, boxelder bugs will hibernate in hidden areas throughout the home. As the temperatures begin to warm up in spring, the boxelder bugs will awaken and emerge in your home in huge numbers. To control boxelder bugs, it is important to treat your home during the fall months.
