During fall and spring, red pot bugs can be seen wandering about outside. Boxelder bugs are harmless, but may be drawn to dwellings by sunlight. In such cases, every crack in outside walls presents an expressway to your home’s interior. This blog shows how we detect and eliminate these intruders.

Boxelder Bugs Inspection

Boxelder bugs were seen in great abundance around the yard, window frame and grassy area of a customer’s premises. The bugs feed on plants and hide in the dirt, waiting for sunrise. That’s when they’ll wander around the side of a home, facing directly into the sunlight. The infestation made the customer scared and nervous.

Boxelder Bugs Removal

We first identify the source. In most cases they infest the yard, before spreading over a wider area. We spray the whole yard to drive the bugs from their shelter — using a power spray for corners, cracks in brickwork and gaps in windows and door frames. We recommend yard reconstruction specifically to avoid further infestation.
