Boxelder Bug Control
The best time to treat for Boxelder Bugs is in the fall when you start seeing them gather on the exterior walls of the building, usually on the south and west sides. We use a residual pesticide on the exterior, which keeps killing arriving beetles attempting to hibernate in your home, until freezing temperatures arrive.
