My first big clue was the homeowner identifying the tree for me. It was a Golden rain Tree. That evening it didn’t take much Googling to find out that they were not Boxelder bugs but a close cousin. The name of this insect is: (drum roll please) The Goldenrain Tree Bug! Who would have thought up such an original name? Having spent over 20 years in the pest control business, this was my first encounter with the Golden rain Tree bug, and I just had to find someone to share it with.
