There's A Christmas Tree-Infesting Bug That Hatches Eggs In Your House
Christmas is still more than two months away, but if you’re freaked out by even the idea of tiny bugs hatching inside your house, you should pay very close attention to the holiday tree that you pick out for your living room. A vicious, tree-killing insect known as the spotted lanternfly. This invasive bug, a native of eastern Asia, made its first appearance in the United States four years ago.
Anyone who is planning to buy a pre-cut Christmas tree this year should carefully check the tree before driving it home, to make sure no eggs or live insects are clinging to the trunk or any branches.
As an extra line of defense, homeowners should also check their Christmas trees — especially ones purchased from garden centers or private lots that might get their stock of trees from out of state.
