Boxwood beetles

Last year we were overrun with the boxwood bugs. I called the 
Agriculture extension agent and he said the biggest thing about the 
bugs is once they start coming to your home, they continue to come 
and in multitudes the following year(s). 

I sprayed the bugs with a mixture of dish detergent and water. It was 
very effective in killing them and this year I did not have the 
numbers that I had last year. I try to spray the bugs while they are 
resting on the side of the house, etc that way I don't kill lady bugs 
and other "good" bugs by spraying them on foliage.

Enviromentally friendly too.
