Keep your Christmas merry by being aware of what is coming into your home.
Real Christmas trees often come with unwanted passengers looking to hitch a ride inside our warm, cozy house. Aphids are the most common and usually die quickly once inside the home, but bark beetles are much hardier. So, inspect that tree!
Shipping boxes can be an even bigger problem than trees. Silverfish prefer spaces with very little airflow, so boxes are their dream home. Once they’re brought inside they will gladly move into your kitchen cabinets and food boxes.
Cardboard boxes are also a favorite snack for German cockroaches and they are extremely hard to eradicate. So, inspect your packages and dispose of them quickly after opening.
Happy bug-free holiday!
