Boxelder Bugs (Seed Bugs and True Bugs)
Boxelder bugs almost entirely feed on the developing seeds of boxelder, maple, and ash trees. Boxelder bugs will release a foul smelling odor when disturbed to discourage predators. Boxelder bugs are primarily active in the fall while they are displaced from agriculture crops after harvesting. These boxelders can become a nuisance to homes in large numbers in the fall while seeking plant debris, human inhabited structures for protection, or other suitable structures to stay warm in over winter.
Boxelder bugs can gather in big groups, especially in the fall, looking to get into your home stay warm in the winter. The best way to get rid of boxelder bugs is to treat the large groups where they sunbathe and congregate, boxelder bugs may be found in groups of hundreds or thousands along a structure looking for a place to overwinter.
