Jack from Pueblo, Co writes,

Is Overwintering Kit for Stink Bugs, Lady Bugs, Boxelder Bugs safe to use on trees, specifically Chinese elm?

When spraying trees are bug eggs on/in the bark of the tree or on the leaves? What is the best month to kill boxelder adults and eggs? We have B.E. bugs in and outside.


The Temprid SC that is included in the Overwintering Kit for Stink Bugs, Lady Bugs, Boxelder Bugs is perfect for spraying tree trunks and foliage, bushes, shrubs, and ornamentals to kill and control Boxelder Bugs. It will not harm trees or your Chinese Elm. Beginning a treatment regiment in early spring and continuing treatments through late fall will ensure a significant decrease in the Boxelder Bug population.
