Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2014 -- Before the Box Elder population explosion inevitably hits this summer, homeowners should be prepared. A new web resource provided by a local pest management company is providing homeowners with useful tips for how to reduce and eliminate Portland box elder bug populations before they get out of control. Columbia Pest Control’s Box Elder Bug resource is available at http://columbiapestcontrol.com/pests-boxelderbugs.htm.
Box Elder Bugs, though typically harmless to people, can do damage to interior spaces in addition to being a general nuisance when their populations get out of control. On a sunny day if one finds clusters of boxelder bugs sunning themselves on the windows or hanging from the draperies, then there is a problem. They tend to sneak in through small cracks in walls, roofs or flooring. If squashed these bugs give off a very unpleasant odor and can stain fabric.
“Our new Box Elder Bug resource offers information and tips for how to prevent these pesky bugs from invading our homes,” said Mike Giskaas, owner of Columbia Pest Control. “We’ve been helping clients successfully deal with Box Elder Bugs for years. Our experienced team is happy to share their expertise with clients.”
