Conifer Seed Bugs
Conifer Seed Bugs

Members of the leaffooted bug family, they eat seeds and do not bite people. They enter homes in search of warm, protected sites to overwinter. This habit is shared by many other insects, such as boxelder bugs and elm leaf beetles. They do not reproduce in the home or damage household items. Conifer seed bugs usually die in a week or two if not allowed to drink water.

We find that most residential customers do not need to have repeated service in their home month after month. Having your home

thoroughly serviced once or twice per year is usually sufficient. However, some problem may require a monthly program, most
pests can be controlled from the outside.
