The holiday season is essentially here, and while you might be dreaming of sugar plum fairies, some pests are dreaming of invading your kitchen. With all the bustle and excitement of the holidays, it can be easy to overlook a few signs of a kitchen pest invasion. But ignore them at your peril! These little critters can do a lot of damage to your holiday plans—especially if it involves food. Here are three pests you’ll want to keep an eye out for this holiday season.
One pest that’s highly prevalent this time of year is the common fruit fly. You might see them buzzing around your garbage can or if you keep a bowl of fruit on your counter. These tiny nuisances breed extremely fast, especially in warmer weather, and while they are relatively harmless they can still spread bacteria and disease.
