7 Common Types of Pests that Infest Christmas Trees

Nothing says Christmas more than a Christmas tree with gifts and presents for one and all. However, did you know that Christmas trees are also havens for many types of insects and breeds? This, of course, mainly pertains to real trees – but pests can also infest artificial ones.

As your pest control experts, Avon Pest Control can easily rid your Christmas trees of all critters and pests. In fact, we have the tools and expertise to ensure proper pest control services throughout the holiday season.

Here are some of the most common pests that may be lurking in your trees right now!


Termites love to congregate, feed and breed in heavily-wooded areas. With this in mind, there are sure to be a few – or several termites feeding on the wood and barks of your freshly cut tree. We can inspect, dust, and shake your tree to rid it of these docile – yet annoying pests. If worse comes to worse, we can spray your trees outside – then bring it back in and help you place it in the proper area.


Ants too love to gather in trees of all shapes and sizes. In fact, many ant mounds can be found at the foothills of trees like Elm, Oak, Pine, Redwood and more. We can spray your trees with cutting-edge pesticides that eliminate these pests onsite. However, the sprays will not affect your leaves, barks, wood or vegetation.

Bird Nests

Birds, nests, and their young may also still be in freshly cut trees. At Avon Pest Control, we can remove these animals and hand them over to local shelters for caring. As always, we do our best to help protect and salvage all types of animals and wildlife across the UK.

Insect Eggs

Insect eggs can be a nuisance in trees during the holidays. Let us shake your trees down to see if there are any bug eggs still inside. We will dispose of them in a safe and environmentally-friendly manner.

Wasps and Bees

Dangerous wasps and bees are attracted to the leaves within trees. In fact, they can start making nests within these trees if not removed. We can take care of this problem for you with our expert pest control services.


Hornets are dangerous and can truly ruin any holiday party. We will remove these harmful pests from your trees with the latest in direct and aerial sprays.


Yep. Cockroaches can also be in Christmas trees – especially those left outside for sale in the city and suburbs. We will remove these bugs easily!

We would also like to wish you and your families Happy Holidays and all the best for a safe, happy, and healthy New Year! Thanks so much for your business and Avon Pest Control truly appreciates you all.
