About Boxelder Bugs (Beetles)
People throughout the state of Michigan have experienced record numbers of this black and red bug for the past several years. Some folks have reported piles of them in their yards and driveways. During the summer boxelder bugs feed on the flowers and seedpods of female boxelder trees. Boxelder bugs invade our homes and other structures in the fall of the year looking for dry, protected sites (attics, wall cavities) in which to spend the winter. They can become quite numerous on the south and west sides of homes where they congregate in the warm autumn sun. In homes invaded by boxelder bugs, it is very common and likely that one will continue to see them throughout the winter and spring months. They are a nuisance but also harmless. They do not bite, lay eggs in our homes, get into our store foods, or eat our fabrics. Compared to the Asian Ladybeetle, boxelder bugs are polite houseguests.
