Why You See More Boxelder Bugs During Colder Weather

Boxelder bugs are notorious for seeking refuge indoors during specific seasons, especially in the fall and winter. Their search for cozy spaces often leads them straight to residential and commercial buildings, making their way indoors through cracks, gaps, or vents.
At Natura, we understand the seasonal fluctuations that trigger boxelder bug invasions. Our services are strategically designed to address these seasonal patterns. We focus on proactive measures, mainly when Boxelder bugs are most active during the summer and fall months, helping you fortify your property against these pests before they become an indoor nuisance.

Signs of a Boxelder Bug Infestation

Boxelder bugs typically head indoors during the fall and winter months to shelter away from the winter weather. Many homeowners notice signs when they emerge from their hiding spots in the spring. If you have an existing boxelder bug infestation, keep an eye out for the following:
Distinct Appearance These insects have black or dark brown bodies with striking reddish-orange markings on their wings.
Indoor Sightings: During colder months and the beginning of spring, you may see them hunkering down near warm indoor spaces like windows, doors, or heaters
Pungent Odor: Boxelder bugs emit a strong, pungent odor when disturbed or crushed.
Residual Stains: Similarly, boxelder bugs can leave reddish-orange stains, often their fecal matter, on surfaces they frequent. Resist the temptation to crush these pests to prevent spreading the vibrant hue around.
Activity Around Light Sources: These bugs are drawn to light sources, so you might spot them near light fixtures or windows during evening hours.
