Winter is coming! And it brings the holidays with. Everyone loves Christmas trees. But there is something you may not know. With the tree, you bring these pets to your sweet home. There can be some bugs on fresh pine trees and these bugs want to be indoors too.

One of them is the aphid. They are tiny and hard to see, and they often live in your Christmas tree.

If you want to avoid these types of instances this holiday season, there are some things that you should know.

Feeding trails, burrows, and eggs are the signs of an infestation. If you find small white blobs that means that Adelgids have been able to successfully drain the sap from the needles on your tree benches.

Some bugs are harmless and for instance, if you have lady beetle larvae present, they consume any other Christmas tree pests, that can’t be seen with unarmed sight.

We have advice for you. Before bringing the tree inside your house try to give it a few shakes or let the tree spend the first night in the garage. This way you can avoid the unwanted pests to live in your sweet home.
