Storing Holiday Decorations the Right Way to Prevent Pests
With the holidays winding down, it’s time to start thinking about putting all the bells, lights and decorations away. In order to ensure everything is safe and sound for next year’s festivities, it’s important to know the best way to preserve and store your favorite Holiday décor. Most importantly, remember that those decorations you pull out once a year can also become a home for pests. Holiday decorations normally stored in attics, garages or basements go undisturbed and unnoticed for most of the year. So unless they are stored properly, they can easily become an inviting new place for insects and rodents to find shelter.

These hosts usually consist of stray or wild animals, but they can just as easily attach themselves to your domestic house pets.
