The weather is getting warmer and the sun is shining longer! That means just one thing… Summer is almost here! Who is ready to head outdoors for picnics, baseball games, barbecues, and more? I know I am! I absolutely love enjoying the great outdoors with my family. But there is one thing I’m not a fan of when it comes to the outdoors… mosquitoes! They not only are a nuisance, but they also pose potentially serious health risks. Luckily there is Orkin and their team of experts that study the science of mosquitoes and other pests. They work to learn new ways to keep them out of your way this summer.
To help you better prepare yourself and your family to fight the bite, Orkin presents the “Buzzer Beater” app. At Orkin, they use the latest technology and unparalleled training to develop an effective treatment that’s right for your needs. To learn more about their pest control based in science or to schedule an inspection, visit orkin.com or call 1-800-800-ORKIN.
