Boxelder bugs are small, one-half inch long, with a flat black body and distinctive red crisscrossing stripes on the wings. While they do not bite, sting or spread diseases, these pests travel in great numbers and can quickly infest a home or commercial property. They generally stay in their natural habitat until late fall when they go in search of a home for the cold winter months. The boxelder bug exterminator technicians on the 877-BUG-FREE team provides effective solutions to get rid of a current infestation, as well as methods to prevent reinfestation.

Our technicians will investigate your home/building and surrounding areas to identify the source of the infestation. For a small number of boxelder bugs, non-chemical methods such as vacuuming then removing the pests are preferred. For a larger presence, 877-BUG-FREE uses highly effective, safe, non-toxic chemical sprays to treat an active infestation. If boxelder bugs are an ongoing issue in your home or business, our exterminators will determine an ongoing, integrated program that includes non-chemical methods, prevention and pest exclusion.
