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.
