Boxelder Bugs Infest Oregon Home

MEDFORD, Ore. — Hundreds of thousands insects are invading one southern Oregon home. Homeowner, Rick Bennett said the unknown bugs covered all the concrete blocks and grass in his front hard.

After seeing the bugs, Bennett said the first thing that ran through his mind was to get rid of them.

“First I was wanting to torch the whole area just because I was seeing so many of them. I just thought it was an infestation” said Bennett.

The bugs are slowly dispersing and are likely young Boxelder bugs that don’t have their full red and black coloring yet.
