Thank you so much for sending your photos on a maple tree, a compost pile and on flower pots so that our viewers will have some idea how Boxelder Bugs look when they create a large aggregation. These aggregations generally appear on warm, sunny autumn days in sunny, south-facing locations. They tend to prefer light colored locations, probably because of the light reflection. Because of these aggregations, Eastern Boxelder Bugs are also known as Politician Bugs, Populist Bugs or Democrat Bugs.
