Professional Box Elder Pest Control Detroit MI

The box elder “boxelder” bug is a small insect with a highly visible physical characteristic – red-outlined wings with a black background. The adult grows up to 0.5 inches long. The box elder diet consists of sap from cones and seeds from the maple, ash, box elder, and cherry tree species.

Why Are Box Elder Bugs Surrounding My Detroit Home?

Beginning in the late fall, box elder bugs initiate infiltration attempts into homes. These attempts are part of an effort to avoid overwintering outdoors. Overwintering is a hibernation-like dormant state, where insects survive on nutrients in stored fat.

Cracks, gaps, and holes are utilized to infiltrate houses, apartments, commercial entities, duplexes, and government buildings.

Do Box Elder Bugs Transmit Disease?

Box elder bugs do not carry disease or parasites. These insects do not pose foodborne illness risks because they do not feed following home infiltration. These nuisance pests colonize to increase their odds of scoring a warm, discrete, dark, and damp shelter in someone’s home.

What Is The Best Box Elder Bug Extermination Solution?

Our industrial-strength pesticide combined with a pre-and post-treatment visual inspection is your best box elder bug extermination option. We believe our professional box elder bug control delivers maximum results in every case.

Should I Try DIY Box Elder Bug Pesticide?

We cannot fully recommend DIY pest control for box elder bug infestation. A full-blown infestation is the most severe pest problem, which requires a strong approach like our professional extermination. Unfortunately, DIY pest control generally utilizes over-the-counter conventional pesticides and insecticides. These low-strength formulas are not strong enough to impact a box elder bug infestation.

How Long Does It Take To Process A Box Elder Bug Pest Inspection Request?

Our pest control service requests can take up to 48 hours to fully process. When processing is complete, we will contact you to discuss a service date. We highly suggest opting for a date that does not interfere with your personal and professional schedule.

Are My Children Exposed To Box Elder Bug Chemical Pesticide During The Treatment Process?

No, we never treat box elder bug-infested homes while they are occupied with humans and/or animals. We require the occupants to evacuate the impacted home prior to each treatment. Our exterminators do not want the occupants to return home for several hours after each treatment. This will eliminate any potential chemical pesticide exposure, resulting in fewer health risks for everyone involved in the pest control process.

What Skills Do I Need To Get Box Elder Bugs Out Of My Detroit Home?

You do not need special pest control skills, equipment, or experience to fully eradicate a box elder bug infestation. All you need is our professional box elder bug control. We will customize a strategy specific to your case. The more severe, the box elder bug infestation, the more potent the pest control strategy should be.

We recommend initiating the process with a visual in-home inspection conducted by one of our licensed exterminators from our Detroit location. Data collected during the inspection is applied to a custom pest management plan that is guaranteed to be 100 percent effective.
