Boxelder bug infestation

Hey y'all! Avid forum reader - first time poster. I live in GA and discovered a boxelder infestation started in my stabilizing jacks and then tucked into other exterior places (like the furnace vent or space between window and guard). Thankfully they haven't really made it into the AS. What's the best way to eradicate the infestation without hurting the AS body? And then the best way to protect against this next year during storage (can only store outdoors)? Thanks!

Odd as it sounds, I would first try spraying them with WD-40 or Boeshield. The solvents and oil in either will probably not be popular with the bugs and either of the two sprays won't hurt your Airstream.
