Box Elder bugs. All over the south facing walls of my house. Any suggestions for a good insecticide without using Agent orange?

Karate Z if you are aloud to buy it (controlled pesticide) !

Don't get any on ya and wash hands VERY good after handling it !


ETA: You can treat your own home by using an insecticide labeled for the exterior of buildings. Examples of common names of active ingredients available to the public include:

bifenthrin
cyfluthrin
deltamethrin
lambda cyhalothrin
permethrin
tralomethrin

I use this stuff. I absolutely hate bugs in my house and I find one application of this stuff lasts about 3 months or so before I see a single bug even close to inside the house.

IIRC cypermethrin is approved for use on them.

Permethrin works well.


Chlorpyrifos is another great product its like liquid death for most living creatures. Wear protective clothing if you use it. It WILL work.
