Guam - Three containers full of Christmas trees brought some unexpected presents with it. Customs and Quarantine agents found no less than 30 different insects in containers that arrived from Oregon and were delivered to Home Depot in Tamuning. 

Customs spokesperson Lieutenant Ferdinand Soriano says as a precaution the containers were sealed while officials identify the insects and determine if they pose a threat to the community.  Last year, dozens of black widow spiders were found inside a container full of Christmas trees.
