As Mary-Lou writes, the risk of bringing pest insects into the
museum in this way is minimal. There will be mostly spiders
spreading from the tree. There is a small risk that dead insects
will be food for dermestids, but a careful cleaning will eliminate
also this problem. Wishing you a Merry Christmas,
