Boxelder Bug

Boxelder bugs were originally native to the western United States, however, they can now be found just about all over the country wherever the Boxelder tree may be present. They are a concerning pest due to the regular overwintering inside of our homes, sheds, and garages.


Identification & Facts (Boisea trivittata)

Boxelder bugs are easily identified by defined orange markings.

The body is flat and oval-shaped.

Boxelder bugs generally become a problem when they invade homes, sheds, and garages in the fall and when they emerge in the spring.

They are roughly ½ of an inch in overall length.

Like stink bugs, timing is very important and exclusion is necessary to prevent interior infestation.
