Control of Boxelder Bugs on Exterior

To eliminate outdoor Boxelders, treat the structure and vegetation (trees, shrubs) close to the structure.  The outdoor elimination of Boxelders is your best prevention against indoor infestations, so begin treatment early. 
Using a good pump up garden sprayer (see our Chapin Sprayer,) mix and apply Tempo WP to the sides of your home and to trees where boxelders are seen congregating or where you have had problems in the past.   Tempo WP has excellent quick knockdown properties as well as long term residual control against a variety of pests that enter homes. This odorless insecticide has a broad label which allows you to treat a wide variety of pests safely, without causing injury to most plants.

When treating for boxelders on exterior of home and bugs inside your home, you might want to use the Tempo Kit.  This kit contains everything needed to treat for boxelder bugs, lady bug infestations, roaches, ants and numerous other household pests.  Tempo products can be used in homes, restaurant pest control, food handling areas.

When treating the exterior portion of your home, spray as high as possible.  You should also spray into any crack, crevice or possible entry point/hiding place where the boxelder bugs might enter.  In areas of the country where Boxelder bugs are a normal occurrence, apply a preventative spray in the late summer to keep the bugs out of your home.
