There is no guarantee that when you see boxelder bugs one season they will be back the other season. There is a caveat though. Boxelder bugs will start to reproduce when they come out of their hibernation period. The boxelder bug will lay its eggs on barks, crevices, and foliage as well. The best thing you can do is have the means to remove them when they happen to arrive, which, again, is not guaranteed.
If you have boxelder bugs and want to make sure they do not overwhelm your home, make sure to call the licensed and insured professionals from Exterminator Mississauga.
