As the cold winter approaches and we head into the holiday season, don’t forget the potential pest risks associated. While decorating the tree or drinking hot chocolate by the fire as fun, be careful of the potential risks pests may pose in these winter months.
Where Are The Holiday Pests?
- Check the Christmas tree and all other greenery items for potential pest infestations before bringing the tree into the home. Spiders, moths, and mites are common pests that live in greenery and could potentially infest your home.
- Make sure all stored decorations are inspected outside. It is important to make sure there are no signs of mice or their droppings inside storage bins before unpacking the items.
- Inspect all firewood that comes into the home. The last thing a homeowner wants to see is a termite or ant infestation from bringing already-infested wood into the home.
