Box elder attack! #822717

Asked March 17, 2023, 6:45 PM EDT

10422 SW. 55th Ave. Portland, OR 97219 .....cross street is SW. Taylor’s ferry Rd. I probably have 20,000+ bugs all over our home not particularly interested in having somebody come out and spray chemicals all over at that we'd have to live with..... a few years I used a sprayer and soap water, which worked great but the problem is much too severe this time not sure what to do. Wish I could send you a photograph.

Hello Gordon,

This was one of our most asked questions in the fall, and it was a featured question on our website: https://extension.oregonstate.edu/ask-expert/featured/stink-bugs-boxelder-bugs-everywhere

I suggest checking out the answer. Let me know if you'd still like to connect with an entomologist.
