Box Elder Bugs in House – Where to Find Them

Box elder bugs may move indoors as the result of their desire to find a warm shelter where they can overwinter. While box elder bugs do not reproduce and lay eggs once they are inside a home, they can certainly be annoying as well as damaging, as they excrete a reddish stain. These insects can be found trapped around doors and windows, inside walls and attics, and in crevices and holes. They can also be found hidden in household clutter. Effective methods of box elder control include sealing entry points, using a vacuum or broom for removal, or calling your pest management professional for advice.
