I am in NW Oregon and plagued with what I think are BoxElder bugs. It is below 60 for a few days and they are vanished, but... they'll surely return when it warms up!
Do these two bugs act same?
Is the remedy for one the same as for the other?
Can I change the sex of a tree?
I tried soap and also vacuming them up buy the hundreds for days at a time, and they ignore it and keep on coming ...I think they come from a neighbor's Japanese Maple and another regular maple tree.
BUT, I have found that they do excitedly hate Windex and 409 Cleaner, and ammonia cleaner. A low/med strong Ammonia solution is the worst for them, and also the cheapest for me.
Thanks for any and all helps you might offer!
