Be cautious since they could appear to be innocent pine cones, but you might have just discovered something much more horrifying. Daniel Reed was on hand to provide more information regarding the peculiar situation.
He posted an image of a sizable light brown mass and wrote:
If you happen to see a walnut sized/shaped egg mass, on your Christmas tree, don’t fret, clip the branch and put it in your garden. These are 100-200 preying mantis eggs! We had two egg masses on our tree this year. Don’t bring them inside they will hatch and starve!- Daniel Reed
Yes, these seemingly harmless lumps are actually praying mantis eggs, and if you don't get rid of them safely, you might find the green bugs covering your holiday ornaments.
If you think this problem doesn't happen often, you might want to look at how many Twitter users have come out to tell their stories.
"Our Christmas tree apparently had a nest of praying mantis eggs and it hatched and now a thousand praying mantises are in my living room,"one person stated.
One more wrote, "I’m taking my Christmas tree down (I know it’s late) but I see this small acorn like thing on a limb and now I see a bunch of these dudes come out...preying mantis? Help!"
But not everyone was disgusted by the infestations. One person even took one of the little animals home as a pet and said, "Remember the praying mantises that hatched on my Christmas tree? Meet 'Manny'.
Another person added, "An unexpected turn in my coup day was discovering that the Christmas tree had brought in an eggsack of praying mantises (that had since hatched). Did you know that baby praying mantises come out looking exactly like they do as adults except really really tiny?"
A third person, who was genuinely thrilled by everything, said: "Omg. The craziest thing happened today! While we were un-decorating the Christmas tree, I discovered a bunch of little bugs on our window sill - Baby Praying Mantises!!! So cool!!! I guess an egg hatched in our Christmas tree. They were everywhere!"
Families are sharing their experiences of unusual clumps found in their Christmas trees, so people are being advised to inspect their trees for any suspicious "lumps."
To prevent a bug infestation, a pest management organization advised people to shake their real Christmas trees outside before bringing them inside. So you won't have to spend the holidays in the company of creepycrawlies.
