How To Get Rid Of Box Elder Bugs | Fox Pest Control

You’ve probably seen them,

those super annoying red-and-black flying bugs that come swarming in the spring or fall.

We’re talking about Box Elder bugs.

Most often, they’re looking for a warm place to hang out for the winter.

Box Elder Bugs know how to slip in under your siding,

or around your doors and windows.

They can nest in your walls and lay their eggs,

so come springtime, they’re back by the thousands.

They’re hard to get rid of too —

box elder bugs stink if you squish them,

and can leave a messy, yellow stain on your furniture or carpet.

Other pests and rodents don’t even want to eat them because they smell so bad.

If you think box elder bugs are lurking around your home,

don’t try to handle it yourself.

Just give us a call, and one of our friendly experts will come out that same day

to track down those stinky pests and customize a plan to get rid of them for good.

All of our Pest Pros are licensed, certified and insured,

so you can rest at ease knowing that you’re in good hands.

And here’s the best part:

All of our work is 100% guaranteed.

That means if the box elder bugs do return,

we’ll come back and service them for free.

So call us today for a free quote and free same-day inspection.

Why not have one less thing to worry about?

Boxelder Bug Control FAQ

WHY SHOULD I GET RID OF BOXELDER BUGS?

Boxelder bugs crawl into the wall voids of your home during the winter to stay warm. Even though they aren’t dangerous, eventually they could create a massive infestation throughout your house on Long Island.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A MAJOR INFESTATION OF BOXELDER BUGS?

You know you have to get rid of box elder bugs if you see them crawling out of electrical wall outlets, ceiling lights or fans, or other cracks inside the house.

DO BOXELDER BUGS BITE? ARE BOXELDER BUGS DANGEROUS?

Boxelder bugs don’t bite; they can’t transmit disease; they don’t eat or contaminate our food; and they don’t cause structural damage. But they can be a significant nuisance when congregating in large numbers in and around your Long Island home.

HOW DOES FOX PEST CONTROL TREAT BOXELDER BUGS?

When a Fox Pest Control technician comes, they will inspect your property, make an assessment based on the Boxelder bug activity, and implement a unique treatment plan tailored to your needs.

WHAT PRODUCTS DOES FOX USE TO GET RID OF BOXELDER BUGS?

Each situation is different, and we may use different products in different cases. You can speak to our customer service representatives for a detailed list of products used during your treatment program.

CAN I GET RID OF BOXELDER BUGS BY MYSELF?

The most effective way to get rid of a box elder bug infestation is with Fox Pest Control. Non-professional products could kill a few bugs but force the rest to hide in deeper cracks and crevices, thereby further entrenching themselves in your Long Island home and worsening the problem.

5-Star Pestimonials

Danny did an amazing job taking down a wasp nest that was very high up. He responded quickly and did what he had to do to get it down completely. We are very grateful for his help, his time and his quick response. He did not rush the service and made sure to stay till it was taken care of. Danny is pleasant and very helpful and I appreciate him going above and beyond to make sure it was gone. We look forward to having him around to help us with future pest needs.

Fox Pest Control is a responsive outdoor pest control service that I enjoy using, With the warm weather my back yard is a shady refuge for many outdoor critters. Fox’s service was thorough and we were able to enjoy our back yard this past summer more than ever before.

Alex Nuñez

Danny came for our service today. He was very professional and communicated well. Called 20 min before, explained what he was doing and was respectful of our no shoe policy in the house. (we gave him booties to wear). Overall I am happy with Danny and the company. I only want Danny to service my home!

Demetri B

Danny is fantastic! He helped us out a lot! He removed our webs and put mesh above our pipes to prevent other pests from entering our house! His service was great. Thank you so much.

Tajera Richards

Carlos was extremely professional and did a thorough job both inside and outside the house. He goes above and beyond every time he’s here. He recently was called to my neighbors about hornets and spotted a monster nest in my yard that he took care of within minutes. 10/10 would recommend.

Alana Fitzgerald

Carlos came on 7/17 for a routine service appt. He was very polite and personable. I mentioned seeing carpenter ants in the home, he surveyed the area and put bug gel in the areas. He was thorough and swift. No complaints at all! Highly recommended!
