Box elder bugs are a common pest in Wisconsin, especially during the autumn season. Boxelder bugs are ovular in shape and black in color with red lines. They primarily feed on the seeds of boxelder trees – hence their name. Box elder bugs become a problem during the autumn season as they start looking for warm places to stay over winter, particularly inside your house.
