Boxelder bugs

I was under the impression that boxelder bugs would not disturb my orchids; I even read up on them online. We had the outside of the house sprayed, but some are still getting in and, while they are annoying, shouldn't have been a problem. WRONG! They're eating my Phals. I have about 15 spots on one plant! I had sprayed them with Physan 20 yesterday morning after that terrible discovery, but they're still munching away on them! I've been vacuuming and vacuuming and dumping into plastic bags that I tie to ensure that there is no way of escaping back into my orchids aka "boxelder bug heaven."
