We have hundreds of box elder bugs? How can they be eleiminatied without using toxic pesticides?

It's almost impossible because they get in all the nooks and crannies of your house such as under the siding, around windows, etc. A non toxic way to kill them, if you can get it to them, would be to use detergent mixed with water in a hose end sprayer. I hope this helps.

I use Dawn dishwashing liquid detergent and water, mixed about the same as you would to do dishes or a little stronger, and put in a 2 gallon spray bottle. Pump up the pressure and spray directly on the bugs. It works! Ralph
