The holiday season is upon us and our cultural activities contribute to pest infestations in our homes during the winter months. The winter clothes we bring out of storage in the attics, boxes, and backs of closets may bring out clothes moths, silverfish, roaches, to name a few pests.

Holiday materials bought at the store or brought out of storage may have been waiting for a year to be used. Christmas trees may have bark beetles, aphids, and mites. Also, other decorations you adorn the home with may have infestations.

The plants you bring in from outside to protect from harsh weather often bring hitchhikers that are not wanted. Even the wood for your fireplace may carry beetles, termites, ants, roaches, centipedes, scorpions, and earwigsas unwanted guests.

If you’re concerned that you have more than your friends and family visiting your home or place of business this holiday season, give Dave a call at 1-800-400-6009.
