“It’s the holiday season (the holiday season, so hoop-de-do and dickory dock…” Andy Williams famously sang this song, Happy Holiday/The Holiday Season, that has become synonymous with the holidays. Families are getting into the holiday spirit by decorating their homes with their beloved holiday decorations. For the majority of us, those decorations have been stored for the past year and often hold more than our beloved ornaments. All too often, those holiday decorations are home to unwanted pests such as spiders, ants, cockroaches, and sometimes even rodents! These boxed decorations give food, shelter, warmth, all with the added luxury of not being disturbed for the past year.
Have you seen a ghostly-looking roach lurking around your home or business? It is quite rare to see a white roach but not unheard of. Some people call them albino roaches, but there is no such thing as an albino roach. Is this a new species? No, it’s actually just a regular old cockroach that is newly molted. When an insect molts it comes out white and stays that color until the new exoskeleton has time to harden.
You’ve planned every detail of your outdoor wedding or special event. The decorations were planned and executed, and the menu is nothing less than perfect.

Is it a tick or is it a scorpion? Maybe you’ve seen them around and weren’t quite sure what they were. More than likely you’ve seen a pseudoscorpion. This insect is like a really small scorpion without a tail or stinger. They do have venom glands in their claws used to kill food sources such as tiny mites and springtails. Fortunately, they don’t pose a threat to humans or pets as they don’t have the strength to pierce a human or pet’s skin.
