Needing Boxelder Bug Control in Albuquerque?

If you have a boxelder tree near your home, chances are you’re well aware of the pesky boxelder bugs that travel in swarms to feast on the seed pods of female boxelder maple trees. These half-inch beetles with their distinct red/orange markings on their wings will cover the sunny side of your home. This makes it nearly impossible to get in and out if you have squeamish children, or if you yourself just aren’t a fan of having beetles flying at you.

Boxelders Are a Nuisance!

Boxelder bugs are not harmful but they sure are a nuisance! They come in droves in the summer, and thrive in hot, dry summers—which is nearly every year in New Mexico! And even if they aren’t causing harm, they have an obnoxious way of covering the sunny side of a house. It’s hard to know how to handle these pests as a homeowner, and since they feed on seed pods from common trees, they can be hard to get rid of for good unless you’re willing to chop down your tree.

Our clients love how non-invasive our methods are. Dial (505) 340-5048 now to set up a boxelder bug removal consultation.
