Decorating for the holidays is supposed to be a fun activity with your family and friends. But that’s not the case when bugs and other pests come into the picture. As one of the top providers of pest control in Columbia, Lexington, and Irmo, SC, Corder Pest Control has some tips on how to keep insects out of your holiday decorations:
- Inspect all decorations – Thoroughly examine everything as you unbox your decorations. If you notice insects, spiders, nests, or rodent droppings, call a pest inspection service.
- Keep firewood away from your home – Termites and ants love to make homes in cut wood. Keep them out of your home by moving firewood as far away from your house as possible.
- Check all greenery – Check your tree, holiday wreaths, and other live or fresh plants before you bring them inside. You don’t want spiders, mites, rodents, lizards, or snakes sneaking a ride into your home.
- Careful storage – Once the holiday’s over, make sure you properly store your decorations. Put all items in sturdy containers with secure, airtight lids.
