Q

Do you know of any pest control companies that have an effective treatment for controlling box elder bugs in the fall before they get in the house?

Answer(s)

A

Start by making sure window screens are in good repair and caulking around windows,  doors, corner trim, and attic vents, etc.  A residual type spray such as Sevin, Permethrin, or other products can be applied to building sides where bugs congregate.  This will reduce entry indoors.
