Boxelder bugs are one of the most common and widely distributed household pests in the Chicagoland area. These distinct red and black bugs are a nuisance to homeowners because they often gather in large numbers on the sides of buildings and on nearby ornamental plants and trees.
They enter homes through:
• open doors
• open windows
• through cracks around sills
• bellow siding
Do you have a boxelder tree in your yard?
These insects are hardy and can migrate great distances. It may not be practical to remove the trees in order to reduce their population for Boxelder bug control.
During spring Boxelder bugs can be seen emerging from hibernation sites. Females begin to lay eggs during April and May, depositing them around host trees. The development from egg to adult takes about 60 days.
Boxelder bugs have spent the winter in such places as:
• wall voids
• crawl spaces
