Boxelder Bugs

If you have a boxelder tree, there is a good possibility that you have seen boxelder bugs. These bugs are usually easy to identify by their black and red coloring. Boxelders emerge from hibernation and the females lay a cluster of yellow eggs on stones, leaves, grass, shrubs, trees, and even bark crevices of boxelder trees. The eggs turn from yellow to red and will soon hatch in 2 weeks. Once the eggs open, the adults emerge from hibernation and fly back to their host tree in late April to early May.
