You Won’t Believe How Many Bugs Are In Your Christmas Tree

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, how infested are your branches?

Bugs are the last visitors you want in your house during the holiday season but a report by Safer® Brand shows that up to 25,000 critters could be taking shelter inside your pine tree! Those insects include bark beetles, mites, praying mantises, psocids, scale insects, and spiders among others. Yikes!

Over 33 million live Christmas trees are sold in the U.S. each year, which means there are tremendous amounts of insects creeping inside households across America without anyone knowing.

How can you get rid of these pesky bugs this year? It's easier than you think! Check out the infographic provided by Safer® Brand below to find out!
