Tis the season! That means that the holidays are here and whether you decorate early or you wait and put up your tree the week before Christmas you want to make sure that you don’t have any uninvited guests. This is also a time of year that people might just show up for a visit or to stay over which is often a huge inconvenience. That is because the season is a busy time where there is lots of shopping, dining, and activities that are planned out. There are people that might show up at your house but that is not all that you have to worry about. You also might be bringing pests into your house that can start to cause trouble for you and your family. You want to do all that you can to keep them out so it is a good idea to know how you are bringing them in and what you can do to avoid it.
Bugs & Pests in Artificial Christmas Trees
When you are taking in your Christmas decorations in the house you should use some caution. That is because of where the items have been stored. The tree along with all your other holiday decorations are usually left in a garage or in an attic or basement. They have been untouched for many months and that means it is the perfect habitat for a pest to take it up as a home. The pests can be spiders, cockroaches and more. That is why when you are ready to bring the joy of the holidays into your house you want to make sure you leave the pests outside. When you bring them in they will likely move out of the boxes and packaging and find a warmer place to stay in your house. This can become an infestation that you will then have to deal with.

Then you bring it in the house and the pests come in with it. You want to be aware that you could be bringing in ticks, spiders, aphids and other pests.
