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.

Edge lives up to their promises. We had a very persistent ant problem. Each time we called to have free follow up services, there was never any hassle and the employees would show up the next day to spray again. Each rep was friendly, punctual and invested in providing quality service.
