Orkin Scientific Back-to-School Giveaway @AskTheOrkinMan #OrkinMan

Disclosure: Orkin provided me with a complimentary prize pack and another to give away to a reader of our blog. No monetary compensation was received. All opinions are strictly my own.

Orkin LLC has given us access to a handy little app that answers some bug myths for us as well as an awesome prize pack to give away!

We hear tons of sayings about bugs all the time. There are so many bugs out there and probably an equal amount of myths and old wives tales to go along with them. For example:

  • “Daddy longlegs are poisonous.”
  • “Mosquitoes prefer adults over children.”  (tell that to my kids legs!)
  • “Ants can survive underwater.”

I’d say many parents “back in the day” made up stories just to keep their kids from messing around with bugs. Maybe they were scared of them so they made up a story. Who knows? Either way, do you know what’s fact and what’s fake?


Take Orkin’s Scientific Fact or Scientific Fake™ Quiz to test your knowledge, and be sure to watch every clip for the scoop on these infamous bug myths.




Orkin uses the latest technology and unparalleled training to develop a treatment that’s right for your home and your needs. To learn more about pest control that’s based in science or to schedule an inspection, visit orkin.com or call (844) 503-8251.

  1. I’ve heard that people that drink a lot aren’t bothered by mosquitoes as much and that’s Bogart drank so much whiskey while filming African Queen.

  2. I kinda expected the quiz to be harder…I got a perfect score…it was still fun to take. Thanks for the chance to win the awesome prize pack

  3. Hmm…..bug facts….can’t think of a whole lot but two that come to mind that I know are false are first that bed bugs are so tiny u can’t see them….while they are tiny, you can see them with the naked eye. Luckily I haven’t seen any of these nasty little guys and hope I never do….another thing that I’ve heard my whole life is that granddaddy long legs is the most poisonous spider in the world but their mouth is too tiny to bite us. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard this false myth, and by many adults who swear it’s true… There are all sorts of other bug myths that I can’t think of right now…. Its def interesting though researching some of these when u hear them.
