Several States Report: Lanternfly Insect Can Get Into The Home By Attaching it’s Eggs to a Fresh Cut Live Christmas Tree
So many people around the world enjoy having a live Christmas tree in their home during the holiday season. Some people may have always had a real Christmas tree. Some folks like the smell. If you are a live tree enthusiast and you are going to put up a live Christmas tree this year, please be aware of the lanternfly problem and how it is currently affecting the live Christmastree industry in America.
If you purchase a live tree, it is important to carefully inspect each tree, one row of branches at a time. The taller the tree, there are more rows of branches to inspect. Remember, inspect all the way to the trunk of the tree. Perform this operation for every level of branches on the tree. A good way to figure whether you looked at all the rows of branches is to average approximately one foot of Christmas tree for every row of branches on the Christmas tree. It’s important that you diligently inspect the tree, all the way to its trunk, from top to bottom. The laying of eggs, takes place mostly on or near the trunk of the tree. Just be extra careful and make sure that you look inside the tree very carefully and check the trunk for possible infestations. That’s really all you can do.
Before you purchase a live Christmas tree this year, just make sure that YOUR fresh cut Christmas tree isn’t one of the affected trees. Several states have reported lanternfly sitings, so Google and find out if your state is one of them. Ask a lot of questions at the tree lot too. The personnel at the tree lot should be knowledgeable about the problem. If the personnel at the tree lot act shady when you mention “lanternflies”, you know that you need to shop for your live Christmas tree somewhere else.
