The boxelder bug is found all over the United States. It is found mostly in the boxelder trees, ash trees, and maple trees. The adults are a brown- black color with a red vein marking on its body.
During late fall the boxelder bugs begin to search for a warmer environment. Large numbers are often witnessed crawling up on houses and buildings. If they gain access through an entry point, the boxelder normally stays within the siding.
The overwintering adults emerge from hibernation and the females lay clusters of yellow eggs on stones, leaves, grass, shrubs, and trees, especially in the bark crevices. These eggs turn red as the embryos develop and hatch in about 2 weeks. In the warmer regions of the United States, there are 2 generations per year.
