Professional Box Elder Bug Extermination In Boston Massachusetts
Boxelder bugs (boxelder bugs) are small insects with distinguishable physical characteristics. The insect’s most noticeable feature that plays a major role in extermination identification is black wings that are outlined in bright red. The adult grows up to 0.5 inches in length. Sap from leaves and seeds from the box elder, ash, cherry, and maple trees make up the box elder bug diet.
Why Is My Boston Home Under A Box Elder Bug Attack?
Boxelder bugs are drawn to the interior of houses, government buildings, and commercial facilities starting in the late fall. These “overwintering pests” have the option of infiltrating homes in homes of scoring a warm hiding place or spending the winter months outdoors in the cold, snow, sleet, and ice. Of course, the insect is going to opt for the former because spending overwintering outdoors is dangerous.
Small cracks and gaps along the foundation, doors, air conditioning unit, and windows are ideal for box elder bugs to crawl through to access the interior of your home.
Do Box Elder Bugs Pose Health Risks To Seniors And Children?
Seniors, infants, and young children are Boston’s most vulnerable age groups. To protect your family members in the aforementioned age groups, we recommend our organic or eco-friendly pest control. However, chemical pesticide formulas are recommended as well. If you opt for a chemical-based pest management strategy, we will request that you and your family vacate the home prior to each treatment.
Boxelder bugs do not eat after infiltration into a building, so there is no need to be concerned about foodborne illnesses.
