Where to look for them
During the Spring and Summer, you will find them primarily around boxelder trees (hence the name) as they feed on the seeds either on the tree or those that have fallen on the ground. They can also be found on or around other fruit-bearing trees. During the winter months, they can be found in areas that provide warmth and harborage. This is typically in a structure or protected area near their food source. It can include sheds, garages, attics or even wall voids in a home or building.
