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.
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.

  1. Look for moving specks of mosquitoe larvae in standing water.

  2. My favorite feature and fact from the Buzzer Beater app is that I learned that mosquitos prefer adults over children I never knew that before. I also like that children can learn from their app.

  3. I was most surprised to learn that perfumes, scented soaps, and lotions can attract adult mosquitoes just like standing water sources and exhaled gases do.
