  • Inspect live, fresh cut evergreen trees, wreathes and garlands for spiders, insect nests or eggs before purchasing. Shake greenery outdoors to remove any pests before bringing them inside.
  • Unpack decorations outdoors so pests aren’t released into the home. Repack decorations in durable, sealed containers that pests can’t chew through.
  • Store firewood at least 20 feet from the home on a raised structure, such as concrete blocks or poles.
  • If you suspect a pest infestation in your home, contact a licensed pest professional to inspect, identify and treat the problem.
