The holiday season means many things to many different people, but there’s one symbol of the holidays that almost everyone brings through their doors. Christmas trees are synonymous with the holidays, but they’re not always the best when it comes to pests and other nuisances. If you’re choosing a real tree this Christmas, it’s important to make sure that you’re choosing wisely. At Accurate Pest Control, Inc., we know that many pests make Christmas trees their home.

Aphids, spiders, beetles, ants, adelgidae and other pests can hitch a ride into your home through your Christmas tree. But, there are steps you can take to buy a tree that’s not loaded with unwanted holiday guests:

  • Look for a healthy tree. Christmas trees filled with green leaves are often healthier than others. While the greenery makes for a better looking tree, it also helps show that the tree isn’t unhealthy or damaged by harmful pests.
  • Don’t get a “snowy” tree. Adelgidae leave secretions that look like snow or cotton on their bodies and even in their tracks after they’ve moved on to another branch. So if you’re looking at a Christmas tree that seems to have fake snow on some of its branches, be aware that this tree isn’t bringing winter cheer into your home, but adelgidae instead.
  • Check under the branches. Many bugs and pests hide beneath branches and at the base of leaves to stay out of sight. Before bringing your Christmas tree inside, check the branches for any hitchhikers to make sure you’re not inviting unwanted holiday guests into your living room.
  • Look at the trunk. While the branches may house spiders, aphids and ants, the trunk of a tree can also house pests. Beetles like to borrow into Christmas tree trunks, so if you’re looking at a tree that has holes or chipped bark around the trunk, there may be beetles burrowing inside.

A real Christmas tree can help enhance your holidays, bringing beautiful and natural style into your home. But, it’s important to make sure that you’re buying a tree that’s free from pests and unwanted visitors. At Accurate Pest Control, Inc., we know that pest control in Weston is a year-round venture, but with the right steps you can work to keep your Christmas tree pest free.
