What do boxelder bugs eat during the winter?
Sap and seeds are what boxelder bugs eat if they are feeding in winter. Specifically, the insect in question (Boisea trivittata) favors the sap and seeds of ash (Fraxinus spp), boxelder (Acer negundo), and maple (Acer spp) trees. Their feeding is concentrated during the warmer weather. During cooler weather, they prioritize sheltering over eating.
