Box Elder beetles have become a common problem in the Lambton Shores and Huron County. During certain times of the year, box elder beetles can gather in great numbers and become a nuisance while warming themselves on the sunny sides of your home in search of a way in. Once the outdoor temperature cools down, box elder beetles can enter your home spending the winter months between the siding. Box elder beetles may enter your home during the winter in search for food and water confusing your homes heating for spring. It is not common for Box Elder beetles to bite. They do not tend to cause property damage, however, their feces can stain light coloured siding or carpets. Box Elder Beetles build their nests in the Box Elder, walnut and ash trees where they lay their eggs amongst the crevices of the bark and feed on the developing seeds.
