Orkin Scientific Prize Pack Giveaway

We've all heard myths about bugs, but do you know what's fact and what's fake

Here are just a few of the myths you may have heard:
“Daddy longlegs are poisonous.”
“Mosquitoes prefer adults over children.”
“Ants can survive underwater.” 

Me - fact or fake, I just want those bugs GONE!  That daddy long-legs spider isn't poisonous?  I'm still going to smash it with whatever's handy if it comes in my house.  Or, better yet, get someone to do it for me, though sometimes that's not an option.

Currently those tiny little gnats that love to buzz around fresh fruit or my wine glass are the most annoying bug problem in this house.  Those things are so irritating!
