Orkin Mosquito Summer {Scientist Giveaway} #LearnWithOrkin

Orkin Mosquito Summer Scientist Giveaway

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.

We have a HUGE issue with pesky mosquitoes out my front and back door. We live right next to a very wooded area, across the street are a creek that runs for miles and miles and two retention ponds. We are a haven for mosquitoes. They also happen to love, love , love my youngest daughter for some particular reason. I myself think she is quite delicious - so naturally, mosquitoes do as well!

To help you better prepare ourselves this summer and your family as well,  to fight the bite, Orkin presents the “Buzzer Beater” app, which features its deep scientific knowledge of mosquitoes.

Test your knowledge by taking the Buzzer Beater quiz(see right below here)!

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay OUT NOW on Blu-ray Combo Pack

Last weekend, my family sat down for the last installment of The Hunger Games. We are huge fans! My son and I read the books years ago and we couldn't wait to finally see the movie ending. My girls are all for girl Katniss power!

There were some differences from the book, but nothing that took away from the story of Katniss. I expected to see her a bit more helpless in this movie as she is in the book, but than I guess we would have a five hour movie. I thought the film adaption was brilliant. We really missed Plutarch, but everything was filmed well around his absence. The book is also a lot more graphic and the film is not, but I am happy about this aspect barbecue my young children would.
