Keeping Your Lewelling Milwaukie Home Free From Box Elder Beetles

Posted by bmedia on Wednesday, April 25, 2018


The charming residential Milwaukie neighborhood of Lewelling is a comfortable haven just beyond Portland’s southeastern border. This community is populated mainly with family homes, its amenable location showcasing an easy adjacency to both city and country. This area, while attractive for its lovely location, is vulnerable to many common pests including box elder beetles.

Box elder beetles are black and orange bugs that congregate on the side of your home. You will typically see them on the south side of the home soaking up the sun. If left untreated, these infestations can penetrate the home as well. Box elder beetles do not actively seek to infiltrate your home, but their large crowds often result in window breaches.

Infestations of box elder beetles are worse in the spring and fall. Treatment can ensure their erasure, but when they do infest, they can be intimidating due to their large numbers and the buzzing noise they produce while they fly.  Box elder beetles do not typically “bite”, but they do have a sucking mouth part that can pierce the skin.
