It's been quite the sight this spring to see the swarms of Boxelder bugs. On the south side of the house yesterday sunning themselves there must have been a couple 100,000 of them.

Some facts about Boxelder bugs.
1...They feed mostly on maple or boxelder trees.
2...They can invade houses or other man-made buildings.
3...They hibernate inside of walls in the winter.
4...They cannot or do not bite people.
5...They do not reproduce inside homes, only outside.
Last but not least...
6...Their poop can stain walls and furniture.
