Boxelder Bug Invasion

A DIY bug mop

Tim Johnstone mentioned that boxelder bugs were raining down on him while in his backyard last night.

They also love to invade homes. Barely touch them and they squish blood. And they stink.

Scientific name: Boisea trivittata

Products that can kill them can also be dangerous to beneficial insects, so it’s tricky.

What to do? Genius idea in the photo above. Thank you to listener Anna H. for sharing her hack. That’s duct tape on a Swiffer mop.
