Q. Box elder bugs EVERYWHERE
I live next to the woods and the wherever the sun is hitting the house, you can bet there will be hundreds-thousands of box elder bugs. There are doors to outside that we won't even open due to the amount of box elder bugs. What do I need to use and do we need to manage to spray the entire side of the house outside?
A.   We recommend using a pyrethroid active ingredient to treat boxelder bugs. The leading pyrethroid insecticides are Suspend SC, Talstar Pro, and Demon WP. This should be sprayed in areas where the boxelder bugs frequent as well as the rest of the entire perimeter of the house. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

A.   We do not have "natural" pesticides that have boxelder bugs on the label. We know that the Bifenthrin and Deltamethrin active ingredients are highly effective for killing boxelder bugs. The product that contains Bifenthrin is Talstar Pro and the one that contains Deltamethrin is Suspend SC. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. We have box elder beetles on the front of our house, which is sided with cedar shingles. Do they breed in the shingles? Previous solutions basically say control is in spraying mulch and the lower parts of the house, not necessarily an entire side.
A.   Boxelder bugs do not breed indoors and they lay their eggs in cracks and crevices of the tree bark. If you are able, you can spray an entire side of the house. You should treat all isolated areas of infestation with a pyrethroid insecticide. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. natural boxelder bug killers
Is there a natural way to kill or keep them away?
A.   You want to find and seal any cracks and crevices outside your home to prevent them from coming in. We do carry botanical insecticides but we would recommend a product like Suspend SC or Demand CS which contains a longer residual resulting in a lasting treatment.

Q. how can i get ride of boxelder bugs inside
boxelders have moved inside my home ive seen all kinds. they have been here all winter that is inside my home
A.   We are not quite sure of what you mean by "all kinds" as there is just one kind of boxelder bug. Indoors, you can use a concentrate product like Cy-Kick or Suspend SC around windowsills, baseboards, in the attic, around door frames, and etc. however, concentrate products cannot be sprayed as a broadcast application indoors. For a fast knockdown kill, we recommend aerosols like 565 Plus XLO or Cy-Kick aerosol. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
