This time of the year, it’s not uncommon to see an increase in bug activity around your home. But that doesn’t mean you’re facing a full blown invasion! There are two common reasons you’re seeing an increase in pests right now. The first one is firewood. When you bring firewood inside, there may be some bugs living on it, so it’s a good idea to check it before you bring it inside. The second most common reason is actually your decorations! Most of the pests you see in your home originate from the outside and are brought inside by – you guessed it – you! The same goes for your decorations. They’ve been in storage either in a garage, attic, or outdoor shed all year, so bugs have made themselves at home. So, before you bring those boxes inside, make sure you give them a good look over first. Hope this helps and if you have any questions, let us know.
