|We had a box elder tree cut down many years ago but we still are invaded by the bugs. I've heard very little can be done and I've tried bug killers, no luck.|
|Box elder bugs are a real nuisance, aren't they? Sometimes you can control them with a permethrin based insecticide such as Bonide?s Total Pest Control, Bioneem by Safer; Bon-Neem by Bonide or Power Force Multi-Insect Killer by Bayer.
If you'd like to read all about them and their lifecycles, here's a publication from the University of Minnesota. I think it's interesting: http://www.extension.umn.edu/d...
