JANUARY 06 2020 / PEST AND TERMITE
It’s the most wonderful time of the year with homes merry and bright with Christmas lights and decorations! If you’re like me, your Christmas decorations were put up a few days after Thanksgiving and Black Friday, and more than likely neither of us checked our tree for BUGS!
While it is rare to have an infested tree, you should be aware of common Christmas tree bugs including adelgids, aphids, bark beetles, mites, praying mantises, spiders, moths, and webworms. The good news is these pests are more annoying than harmful to you and your home. If you should find yourself with a bigger pest problem, Waynes is just a call away to make it a critter-free Christmas.
Whether you set up an artificial or real Christmas tree, follow these quick steps to keep it critter-free this Christmas.
Have a Merry Christmas!
NOTE: For both trees avoid using harsh pesticides and flammable aerosol pesticides. Keep in mind that the pests on your tree prefer the forest environment from which it came and the warmth of your home has likely triggered their instinct to awaken for spring. These pests will eventually dry out and die due to habitat change or lack of food and water. However, regular pest control treatments are recommended to prevent long-term problems.
