Boxelder Bugs

Boxelder bugs, named after the trees they infest, are common pests that can become a nuisance in the spring and fall. These bugs are not harmful to humans, but their presence can be frustrating, especially when they enter homes and buildings seeking shelter. Many pest control companies won’t even service boxelder bugs because they are so seasonal. 


Our Boxelder service is $497 and includes two treatments spaced roughly 3 weeks apart. We recommend that homeowners follow a preventive pest control program to keep boxelder bugs from returning, which includes regular inspections and treatments.

If you are experiencing a boxelder problem in your home, call us at 503-985-6523 for professional and effective treatment.

About Boxelder Bugs

During the spring, boxelder bugs emerge from their overwintering sites, such as trees or cracks and crevices in buildings, and begin to feed on plants, trees, and other vegetation. In the fall, they return to these overwintering sites to hibernate, which is when they often become a problem for homeowners. Once boxelder bugs have gotten inside your home you will need to implement some sort of a pest control program to treat them. 

To treat boxelder bugs, it's important to use the right products and pest control techniques. Insecticidal dust and sprays are often used to control boxelder bugs. These treatments work by killing the bugs on contact and preventing new infestations.

At Pest Patrol, we offer a boxelder treatment service that includes two treatments spaced roughly 3 weeks apart. This pest control treatment is recommended to be done in late summer or early fall when boxelder bugs begin to enter attics and cracks/crevices to overwinter, but treatments can be done at any point if boxelder activity becomes too high, particularly in the Spring time when they leave their overwintering sites to go nest in trees.

I hired Pestpatrol to take care of an ant problem inside my home. Gabe was professional, patient and very thorough when he diagnosed the problem. He communicated what the solution was, discussed safety of the recommended products and performed the work efficiently. I would not hesitate to recommend pestpatrol.

My shop has had an infestation of rats for over 9 years! I tried traps and occasionally caught a rat but always they came back. On their first visit we discovered two entry points for the rats and plugged them up. After a few rats caught, my shop has returned to normalcy. Thank you Pest Patrol.
