    My dad was looking at the Christmas tree one year, a few days post-Christmas. It appeared to be covered in bugs. Upon closer inspection, he saw it was actually COVERED IN TICKS!!! The heat had caused all the tick eggs (?) to hatch. Needless to say, he got the tree out of the house in less than a minute!

    Yuck!!! The ladybugs are our annual winter residents, not related to the tree. They are a nuisance, but fortunately they are not gross like ticks! Or the stinkbugs that were prevalent at our old house!
