The season for scary tricks and spooky treats is upon us. Get those decorations ready, make your scarecrows, purchase your candy, and carve those pumpkins! Maybe think twice before the pumpkin carving though. Something really scary could happen if you carve those pumpkins too soon. There are some pests that will be attracted to your jack o lantern and you would not like them in your home. So what is the trouble with your Jack O Lantern? Let’s find out.
Pumpkin Spice Is So Nice, But Pumpkin Pest Are A Mess!
Your family eating those tasty pumpkin pies, breads and lattes make us ALL LOVE FALL. Unfortunately, rats and mice will take notice of a freshly carved pumpkin and see it as a great feast! Fruit flies and ants will be attracted to pumpkins as well, and will likely show up for the feast.
Best Way To Enjoy A Scary Pumpkin
We can’t just go without a jack o lantern. How can we still have the scary, smiling, orange blob without inviting unwelcome guest to your home? If you want to have one inside, just don’t keep it for very long and check it a few times a day for any signs of interested intruders. It would be best to carve it right before Halloween and then remove it right after.
The trouble with your Jack O Lantern doesn’t have to be trouble at all! Make good choices and have fun!
