It’s almost Christmas time, and most of us have already started thinking about how to decorate the Christmas tree this year. After all, what’s Christmas without a Christmas tree to make your entire living room look festive, right?

But while most people are mainly concerned about the decorating part, there are also other aspects that must be taken into account in regards to the traditional Christmas tree. You surely didn’t stop to think that bugs could be an issue you have to think about when it comes to your tree.

But as it turns out, the risk of having your beautiful Christmas tree invaded by disgusting pests is actually pretty high during this time of the year. Bugs and other small insects don’t like the cold too much, so they are always looking for warmer places to camp.

In the warm environment of your living room, these creatures come alive, and can make an appearance during the worst possible times, like during your festive, family Christmas dinner.

What can you do about it? Well, make sure to shake the tree after you buy it. If you buy your tree at a specialized market, there might be someone there who can do it for you.
