Signs of Elm Seed Bugs in Grand Junction

Elm seed bugs can easily be mistaken for similar pests like the stink bugs, but they differ in appearance. Some of the most identifiable features of elm seed bugs are:

  • Dark red and black color
  • About 1/3″ long
  • An upside-down black triangle on the back

Elm seed bugs typically find food and shelter in elm trees but begin to pose a problem when they move out of the trees into homes and buildings. The most common signs of an elm seed infestation include:

  • Swarming – They usually invade structures in large numbers making removal more difficult.
  • Bad Smell – Elm seed bugs emit a strong odor similar to bitter almonds. Stepping on them or killing them will make the smell worse.

Seeing or smelling elm seed bugs are the most telling signs of an infestation. If you live near Elm trees, have cracks around your windows and doors, or notice a problem with Elm seed bugs, call us today for effective Elm seed bug removal!
