Wacky Pest Wednesday: Reindeer
Happy Wednesday, Tri-County Pest Control fans! With Christmas being just one week from today, we’ve decided to dedicate our latest edition of Wacky Pest Wednesday to an animal that you may see up in the sky next week: reindeer.
Reindeer are some of the hardest working animals out there. Hailing from the cold arctic climate, reindeer can be domesticated to pull heavy objects, including, but not limited to, sleds filled to the brim with gifts. They are usually friendly creatures, creating awe-inspiring moments with their large antlers and majestic look. While we are not sure on the biology of this, there have been documented cases where people have seen reindeer fly, and even a couple sightings of one or two donning a cherry-red, glowing nose. What’s weird is that these flying reindeer are spotted outside of their normal habitat. Instead of being in the arctic, people have spotted them up in the sky right here in the Mid-Atlantic region. Most curious, don’t you think?
Since reindeer are usually friendly, they pose no harm to you, your family, or your home. However, reindeer are known to be very appreciative if they are thanked for their hard work. For reindeer that are pulling sleds or what have you, they love an energy-boosting snack of carrots or oats. If you know that a team of reindeer is coming by, perhaps leave out a small snack for them to keep them in good spirits. It is, of course, the season of giving!
Heading into Christmas, we want to make sure that you are up to date with everything you need to know about reindeer, just in case you think that a few may come by your house. Should you need any more advice about these furry and friendly animals, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
From all of us at Tri-County Pest Control, we wish you and your family a very merry Christmas!
