Pest Control Tips: Check Your Christmas Decor

pest controlIt’s a great excuse to go back in time while unpacking Christmas decorations. Many people find that every ornament and festive decoration they take out of their boxes can bring back memories from past holidays. The holiday season can be set by putting up wreaths or bringing in a Christmas tree. If you unpack any unwanted holiday guests, your joy can be stifled. That’s why you need to know the best pest control tips if you encounter this problem.

Pest Control During The Holidays

Silverfish, spiders, and stink bugs are common pests in cardboard boxes in crawlspaces and basements. While rodents and spiders may be able to ride on your tree or wreaths, they can also take up residence in these boxes.

Pests love old cardboard boxes stuffed with Christmas cards, stockings, popcorn strings, and other decorations. While you won’t be able to see the pests when you bring the boxes into your living room, it is likely that they will show up once you have moved the boxes around. They may then make their way into your home looking for a new hiding place. Pests can be a nuisance and cause distress.

Many people love picking out their Christmas tree every year. It is a family tradition. It is beautiful to bring your tree inside and decorate it during the holidays. There is a good chance that the tree is home to spiders and other pests because it is outside. You could have a pest infestation if they remain on your tree after you bring it inside.

How can you enjoy Christmas decorations without increasing pest risk? These Myrtle Beach pest control tips will help you keep your Christmas decorations safe.

  • Place Christmas decorations in plastic containers with lids.
  • Instead of storing your artificial Christmas tree in its cardboard box, place it in a tree bag.
  • Before you bring your tree into your home, make sure it is healthy.
  • Place Christmas stockings and linens in plastic bags.
  • You can throw out edible decorations like the gingerbread house or candy canes.
  • Before you stack Christmas decorations, clean out your storage space.
