Orkin Mosquito Summer Scientist Giveaway





Hey neighbors!

It is that time of year again!  Spring is here and with it comes BUGS!  We have already seen ants in the house, and soon our evenings outside will be filled with mosquitos.  It is sort of funny, because our family is divided on this.  About half of us are the chosen mosquito bait.  No matter what, we are the ones who get bitten.

We were camping one year and we were sitting out at the picnic table.  Two of us started smacking at mosquitos immediately as they were landing on our arms and legs.  I told my husband that we needed to head inside.  He asked why, and was totally amazed that we were getting bitten and not a single mosquito bothered him.

Orkin is on hand to try and help you beat the mosquito season.  Take the quiz below and then in a comment share something you have learned.  This allows you to enter the giveaway for a Orkin Summer Scientist Bug Catching Kit.

I learned in the Buzzer Beater Quiz that adult mosquitoes are attracted to smells from scented lotions, perfumes & lotions as well as standing water!

I learned that: Bright colors have not been proven to attract adult mosquitoes, but strong smells like perfumes, scented soaps, and lotions do. Standing water sources and hot exhaled gases also attract mosquitoes.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
