Got Boxelder bugs? We do! Gross!!! They cover the south side of our house every spring and hang out well into the fall! Want to get rid of them naturally?
How to get rid of Boxelder Bugs Naturally
- One of the first tricks I found as I was learning how to get rid of boxelder bugs was soap and water. Particularly laundry detergent. Mix a half cup of this into a gallon or two of water, put it in a spray bottle, and go at it. This one works most of the time. I use my homemade laundry detergent for this one!
- The garden hose outside can be a great weapon as well. Increase the intensity of the sprayer and just blast them out of the air. This will kill many. This is my husbands favorite method. Something about guys and high-powered hoses!
- Borax. Sprinkle this all over places that the critters live and hang out
This is what works the best for us. I would love to hear what your favorite tips are in the comments below!
