Managing Elm Seed Bugs around Your Home

The elm seed bug (Arocatus melanocephalus) in Idaho invades homes in July and August from surrounding landscapes where elm trees grow.

Control options include bug proofing the home, vacuuming, using sticky traps, raking and destroying elm seeds, and applying broad-spectrum insecticides.
