BERRY BITS: Check Christmas Trees For Unwanted Hitchhikers

The spotted lanternfly is a very pretty insect, but it is invasive and destructive. Infestations have posed a real problem in Pennsylvania, and with Christmas tree season upon us the bug may be spread to our living rooms. It is recommended that you check the bark of live trees for eggs before bringing them in the house this season. If you find a discoloration, spray it with hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol. The eggs have been known to hatch from Christmas trees inside the warm environments of people's homes and we're sure no one wants to have to call an exterminator during the holidays!
