These bugs were at the top of our Christmas tree when we took it down. Didn’t see them anywhere else on the tree.
We bought the tree in the town of Camino in northern California.

Dear Bill,
Most folks never notice Giant Conifer Aphids on the living Christmas Tree until the tree begins to dry out and the Aphids leave the branches in search of food.  Giant Conifer Aphids pose no threat to the home unless there are other potted conifers indoors.
