Could your Christmas tree be inviting insects into your Massachusetts home?
Nothing puts you in the holiday spirit quite like a fresh Christmas tree. The smell, the contrast of green against a snowy background, the excitement of decorating, the promise of time spent with family and friends, the thousands of insects... Wait...
It's unfortunate, but true. Experts say that there could be as many as 25,000 insects on one Christmas tree. Don't panic-- the majority of these tree trespassers are harmless, but that doesn't mean they are welcome to partake of your festivities.
