Orkin Mosquito Summer Scientist Toys Giveaway!


Special thanks to Orkin and Tether group! All opinions are honest and our own.
My little guy loves loves loves collecting bugs!  Most especially beetles.  The bug jar pictured above has long since become very dirty and fallen apart so he'll be ecstatic to receive a new one along with other great bug doodads from Orkin... along with one of our readers!

Summer is almost here! That means picnics, baseball games, barbecues and all the fun of enjoying the great outdoors with your family. There’s one thing no one likes about being outdoors, though: mosquitoes! They not only are a nuisance, but they also pose potentially serious health risks. Fortunately, the experts at Orkin study the science of mosquitoes and other pests closely in order to better tailor plans that help keep them out of your home this summer.
Last year, we had so many mosquitoes! It was horrible.  During the beginning of the summer, I went to a DIY oils party.  We made candles with Citronella oil.  It turns out, that stuff really works! Whichever room  I had the candle in, the people there would be the only ones to wake up without mosquito bites.  Needless to say, I invested in some more candles! This year, I have a couple of oil diffusers I'll use with citronella instead--much cheaper than candles!  Do you have any mosquito stories or tips to share?

To help you better prepare yourself and your family to fight the bite, Orkin presents the “Buzzer Beater” app, which features its deep scientific knowledge of mosquitoes.
Take the Buzzer Beater quiz and comment with the most helpful or surprising fact you learned!

  6. Check your screens for holes and repair any hole you find to help keep mosquitoes away. Also eliminate standing water around your home - low spots in the yard, in flower pots, etc.

  7. 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.
