Bugs on Live Christmas Tree
Some people love the smell and look of a real Christmas tree. The tree is a huge part of decorating and when you bring in a tree and string it with lights and ornaments it makes the room look great. When you bring the tree in the house you may be bringing in pests that are not wanted in a home. You want to be careful when buying a fresh tree because they of course have been left out in the outdoors. That is exactly where many pests reside and when the tree is taken to a lot they are still on that tree. There are spiders, ticks and more that can be found on the tree. When you drag it in your house they will make their way off the tree looking for a more comfortable place to live. You want to see if the lot that you purchase your tree from has a shaker that can shake the tree to help drop the pests off before you load it. You want to be sure that you are ready to deal with pests if you purchase a tree.
Pests on Fake Christmas Trees
Some people don’t want the hassle of a fresh tree and making sure that it is kept watered and alive. These are the people that have a fake tree that is stored on the property until they need it again. The tree is usually left in the garage or in the attic. That is where lots of pests live and that is where they can get in the box that you are storing your tree. When you drag the box in your house the pests will start to disperse. You can start to see cockroaches, crickets, spiders and so much more. This can lead to an infestation that will require you to call out a professional pest control company. The pests have been nesting in your tree and box and need to be treated to get them out of the house.
