Oh, Christmas Tree! Oh, Christmas Tree! You're actually kind of... disgusting!
We all love the smell of a real Christmas tree, but at what price? Believe it or not, a new report reveals that some 25,000 insects could be hiding in that beautiful Christmas tree in your living room, which let’s face it, is just gross.
So, what kind of bugs could be hiding in that beautiful tree of yours? They include:
- Aphids (often in huge numbers)
- Spiders & Mites
- Adelgids (they may look like snowflakes on the tree)
- Pine Needle Scale (they appear to be tiny white specks)
- Praying Mantises
- Bark Beetles
To be honest, I'll take my chances! I LOVE my real tree!
