I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but… there are probably bugs in your real Christmas tree. Don’t blame the messenger!
Good Housekeeping says some tree insects go dormant when the weather gets colder. So the critters might not come out until the tree is inside your warm home.
And. Even worse. There could be up to 25,000 bugs in that tree!
So, good luck with that real tree. I’ll stick with my artificial tree.
