Box Elder Bugs
Box Elder Bugs can be found in areas where trees like the box elder or maple grows. They are about half an inch big, ovular and often have an orange or red ‘X’ on their back. They live, breed, and feed on the trees and are often spotted in large aggregations on the sunny side of buildings. Although they are harmless, in the colder months they can become quite invasive as the try to sneak inside warmer spaces.
