Professional Box Elder “Boxelder” Bug Pest Control Phoenix AZ
Boxelder bugs are small insects with distinguishable physical characteristics – black wings that are outlined in bright red. The adult grows up to 0.5 inches in length. The insect colonizes to protect the species from extinction. The diet consists of sap from seeds and/or cones from the box elder, ash, cherry, and maple tree species.
Why Is My Phoenix Home Under A Box Elder Bug Attack?
As an overwintering pest, the box elder bug spends the latter part of the fall season attempting home infiltration. The insects will continue the attempts until success or overwintering kicks in. Once the insect enters the dormant state of overwintering, it rarely moves, but makes routine body positional changes.
Access points like cracks, holes, gaps, and crevices in the vulnerable window and door frames, crawlspace vents, and soffit.
Will My Children Be In Danger With Box Elder Bugs Around?
No, box elder bugs rarely bite. And, when they do, the victim will rarely experience an allergic reaction. These are non-venomous insects that do not transmit diseases or parasites to humans. Your kids are not in danger. But, this does not necessarily mean you should permit the box elder bugs to infiltrate your home forever.
