Halloween: Costume Ideas & All Things PumpkinOctober 24, 2018
Halloween is associated with all the things creepy and crawly. Still looking for a costume idea? How about borrowing inspiration from the world of bugs!?!? Ladybugs, butterflies and caterpillars are classics but with a little imagination, you can think of all kinds of insect-themed costumes.
One of our faves in the Queen Bee. A perfect combination of honeybee & royalty, this could be as simple as a black and yellow striped shirt complete with wings and a crown. Don’t forget to add some jewels as no queen should ever be caught without her bling!
Once Halloween is over and all the candy has been eaten, it’s time to take down the decorations & dispose the those pumpkins & jack o’lanterns. Many insects are drawn to the odors given off by rotting fruits and veggies so it’s recommended that you don’t leave these out too much longer. Their decomposition can attract some unwanted pests like fruit flies, filth flies and rodents. And this can quickly escalate into even bigger problems when other insects and wildlife come to prey on the pumpkin pests.
