Utah is the perfect environment for Elm Seed Bugs to thrive, unfortunately. They feed on sap from elm seeds and leaves, which does not actually damage the tree. They can often be found congregating in warm areas, sometimes on structures like houses.

If they percieve a threat, they emit an unpleasant odor. Another negative to having them around your property is that they often stain surfaces with fecal matter.
