Boxelder bugs are small pests that are common in our area. These pests are black and small with red lines on their wings. These pests are roughly half an inch in length. When it is warm, they’re going to be outside feeding on maple trees, ash trees, box elder trees, and other trees. Before it gets cold, they’ll try to invade your home.
