Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Box Elder bugs are out in full force, but there are some things you can do, "if" they are taking over your house.

Swarms of the bugs always come out this time of year, but the dry weather has them even more active. They hang out around box elder trees and the south sides of buildings, where the sun shines.

Soap and water, or certain insecticides can help keep them off of your house, but there is no cure-all to get rid of them.

Larry Thompson with Johnson's Pest Control says, "the biggest thing is that they just come and they go, and they're a nuisance. So, we can spray them but there's not a guarantee we can get 100% of them."
