How To Get Rid of Boxelder Bugs... Seriously!

This isn't really technology, computer or software related, but I thought I'd share this with you anyway since it is something that has literally been "bugging" me for the last two years. That is that I've had a huge issue with Boxelder bugs all over the front of my house! They weren't there when I moved in three years ago, but they took up residence last year and never left apparently!

Looking on YouTube, I found this video that tells you to use liquid dish soap and water on your siding because the Boxelder don't like it apparently:

Well, this technique did get them off the siding, it did NOT get them off my sidewalks or bushes around the front of my house. It did not solve the problem!

Well, today I had enough and decided to get something that would solve the problem. I bought some Spectracide HG-95830 Triazicide Insect Killer for Lawns & Landscapes Concentrate, Ready-to-Spray and attached that sumbitch to my garden hose!

I let loose a torrent of water and death all over the front of my house, on my sidewalks and in the plants around the front of of my house. Hordes of Boxelder bugs were covered in the Triazicide spray and slowly met their inevitable doom!

The ready to spray version is the best in my opinion because it hooks to your garden hose and allows you to spray a large area quickly.

The Spectracide website even lists Triazicide as one of their solutions to kill Boxelder bugs! Boom! Suck on that you nasty bugs!

If you have Boxelder bugs all over the front of your house, ditch the dish soap, grab a hose and hook up a bottle of Triazicide to it and unleash hell! You can thank me later!
