​Boxelder Bugs

Boxelder Bugs: The Boxelder adult is about ½" long with dark brown or black coloration with red wing veins and marking on the abdomen. Boxelder nymphs are bright red in color. These bugs are primarily found on boxelder, maple and ash trees. They are not known to cause any significant damage and are not considered an agriculture pest. Boxelder bugs are considered a nuisance pest to the public because of their hibernation traits and large focused populations. During the cooler months they will invade houses and other man-made structures. They tend to over winter behind siding and inside walls. Some people will detect a full odor if these pests are exterminated and not removed from the structure.
