Professional Box Elder Bug Pest Control Tulsa OK

The box elder “boxelder” bug is a small insect with black wings outlined in neon orange coloration. The adult grows up to 0.5 inches long and feeds on sap from seeds of the cherry, box elder, ash, and maple tree species.

Why Are Box Elder Bugs Taking Over My Tulsa Property?

Boxelder bug activity is more noticeable beginning in the late fall. This is when the insects are preparing for the upcoming winter season. Like the ladybug, stinkbug, and earwig, the box elder bug overwinters (hibernates) throughout the harsh winter season. To avoid the elements that come along with winter, the box elder bug infiltrates residential and commercial establishments. Overwintering indoors is more attractive to box elder bugs than being exposed to cold air, icy rain, and snow.

Now that you’ve learned about these bugs invading your home, you’ll need to find out how to get rid of them.
