Boxelder Bugs, Asian Lady Beetles, and Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs probably aren’t the first pests that come to mind when you think of a pest infestation, but these fall invaders get their name from occasionally invading structures. You’ll start to see this happening when weather conditions become threatening to their survival.
Stop the pests making their way into your home and remerging after a long sleep in late winter/early spring.
It is important to treat for these pests before they have the chance to enter your home in fall. The best way to control Asian Lady Beetle and Boxelder Bugs invasions is to:
- Seal up and repair any cracks and crevices around windows, eaves, doors, insulation and siding in the fall
- Pay close attention to places where pipes and wires enter your home
In addition, Batzner Pest Control offers a fall service that creates a protective barrier to treat the cracks, crevices, and potential entry points the fall invaders are attracted to, controlling and minimizing the population. These pests are only active for a short period of time, so this service must be applied before the first frost. Call or book now to ensure you don’t have fall invaders waking up in your home. If you are already on our BAN™ system, the Asian Lady Beetle and Boxelder Bug treatment is included. You're all set!
