There are many things to admire about winter, and the holidays surely make the list. The best part about the winter holidays is that you hget to decorate your house all sparkly, shiny and glowing with all possible kinds of Christmas lights and whatnot. We can skip mentioning the Christmas tree. There is probably not a single person who does not like that piney scent and the perfect festive mood that this holiday tree brings together with it.
Yet, with all that glow and mood, there is something else that a Christmas tree can bring into your house. The thing is that people think – once it is cold there is no way there are any insects alive. Truth be told, they never die, they mostly hibernate and once you bring the Christmas tree in – all its inhabitants wake up and invade your living room.
Usually, it is pretty hard to notice the bugs, since they are small, but if they live in your pine tree, you will definitely see some signs. The most common signs of unwanted inhabitants would be their eggs or burrows.
Despite how horrible it may sound, all the bugs that may be found on your Christmas tree are harmless, what is more, they need to feed and once your tree is dying, which is inevitable – so will they.
The best you can do to bring less of them into your house is to shake your pine tree well before bringing it into your house, or you can even leave it in your garage overnight. Once you do that, make sure that you clean the tree often so that the bugs do not crawl away from it.
Last but not least, when you decide to bring a fresh pine tree into your house, you need to understand that there are some inhabitants it may have since it grew surrounded by nature. Let these little things share your Christmas mood and die happily, after all, you don’t even realize that they’re there!
