Boxelderbug Pest Control Portland

Boxelder bugs are a common house pest. While they aren’t aggressive, nor do they transmit disease, they are a nuisance to homeowners. They spend the majority of their life cycle outdoors but will invade homes during the winter. Once inside, box elder bugs can:

  • Stain linens and upholstery with their excrement
  • Eat house plants
  • Leave an unpleasant, lingering odor if crushed
  • Pierce the skin, leaving a small red welt

While not life threatening, these behaviors are certainly annoying and frustrating. Edge provides professional boxelder bug extermination in Portland and we can help you terminate these pests.

Protecting your home from boxelder bugs - inside and out!

The main food source of boxelder bugs is the boxelder tree. Boxelder bugs feed on the seeds of these trees as well as other maple trees, plum and apple trees. These feeding habits can ruin fruit crops and yellow the leaves of trees. Cleaning up the fallen seedpods of boxelder trees helps to reduce food availability to boxelder bugs and keeps the population down. Make sure to seal any cracks in the exterior of your home and edge all doors to prevent boxelder bugs from entering. If you suspect a boxelder bug infestation, don’t worry. As the leader in pest control in Portland, Edge can address any exterior or interior pest you may encounter.

Boxelder bugs are tiny and oblong with black bodies and red markings. They are easily mistaken for milkweed bugs. If you think you have a pest infestation, give Edge a call today. All Edge locations have an Associate Certified Entomologist on call that will correctly identify your pests.

Worse company ever. Told by the first technician that the rat program we bought would have them come out every two days until there was no sign. He put traps out without setting them and we had to call to get someone out after a week.! Next technician came out set the traps and put bate boxes around our yard which concerned us cause we already had a dead rat in the wall a couple months back. They told us they don’t use the same bare that you buy at the store and they will go into the yard to die. Not true. Had to tear a wall out to get a dead rat. Not sure how many more. And in the 4 weeks we’ve had the service. We’ve been charged $249 for the rat program. $119 for a quarterly service $99.00 cause apparently our rat program visits ran out and and we had to extend service. And oh yeah. Another $119 for a quarterly service after a month of service. And when we ask to cancel. We were told we would have to pay 50% of the remaining contract but we couldn’t find out how much that was. Oh and after one month of service at least one dead rat in our wall and one rat caught in a trap. I think Edge are the rats! I even received an after service pamphlet stating to leave the problem up to the professionals. These guys are not professionals!

David is the Edge technician we've for the last several visits. He takes very good care of our house and does a great job of getting rid of ants and mice. Very conscientious, helpful and has a pleasant personality.
