Most of us store our holiday decorations in basements and attics – two places that pests tend to hide in. When you’re unpacking your holiday decorations for the season, make sure to check all your decorations before you use them! Here are some of the most common bugs you may find hiding in your holiday decorations.
Spiders love cool, dry places and they are so small, they can fit in nearly any crack or crevice. It is easy for spiders to get inside your holiday decorations and make their webs within your belongings. When decorating for the holidays, you should always dust things off and make sure that spiders and their webs aren’t hanging onto your stuff. If you notice lots of spiders and you can’t get rid of them yourself, you should call an exterminator.
Silverfish are those centipedes you dread to see – the ones with the long bodies and tons of feet. , these pests don’t cause humans any harm, and they are actually good to have around because they eat small bugs. But, you don’t want to have one of these centipedes on your holiday decorations. Make sure to clean off your holiday items before bringing them out of your basement or attic.
Mice and rats love to hide in basements and attics. No matter where you live, these pesky critters tend to hide in your home and make their nests in very small cracks and crevices. If you notice rodent droppings in your basement or attic, that is a telltale sign that rodents are somewhere nearby. The best course of action is to set out some traps or call an exterminator to take care of the issue. Before bringing any boxes full of holiday decorations upstairs, check to see if there are any small rodents inside. If there are, you can always set the box outside and let the rodents out into your backyard.
