Humans aren’t the only ones who enjoy fruit. Many insects use
trees and their fruit as homes or places to lay eggs.
Unfortunately, this can lead to accidental infestations like
one family experienced when infested fruit was brought
into their home. Brazilian Wandering spiders, the world’s most
venomous species of spider, were found crawling on imported bananas
the family bought at the grocery store.
Pests can get into homes in many different ways. It is important
to check groceries for abnormal spots or holes before buying them
in order to avoid an infestation.
