Although Box Elders specialize on Acer seeds, they may cause damage to plant tissues while feeding. They form large numbers while sunning themselves in areas near their host plant. They feed and lay eggs on maple and ash trees. During winter months, they sometimes invade houses and other man-made structures. They are inactive inside the walls and voids while the weather is cool. Sometimes heating systems cause them to think it is spring and hatch early. They can be found in large number in the spring well into the fall. They become a problem when they seek warmth in houses and businesses looking for winter hibernation locations.

Boxelder Bug Pest Control in Utah
We haven’t seen any bugs since he came out. He was able to explain the importance of having them do an initial spray, then a second (egg cycle). Thanks for all your help!

Troy was very friendly, showed up on time and was able to complete the entire yard and foundation in a quick time. this is the second year using Alpine and have been very pleased.
He was very professional, introduced himself, explained everything well and did a thorough job. He said if we notice after a week that spiders aren’t going away to call and he will come back out.

Showed up on time, was not invasive to my privacy and he answered all my questions and educated me on the matter. This is the second year in a row using Alpine and I will be having them come back again next time.

Alpine Pest Control was the best pest control service I’ve ever used. They were on-time, cost effective, easy to get appointments and were quick to respond to calls. I highly recommend using Alpine Pest Control and ask for Troy as your technician!
