Orkin Buzzer Beater Quiz & Summer Scientist Giveaway

I can't wait for SUMMER and it is almost here! Grilling out on the back deck, baseball games, going on hiking adventures and all the other fun family activities you can do outdoors make it a great time of the year. There’s one thing no one likes about being outdoors, though: mosquitoes! Not only are they a nuisance, but they also pose potentially serious health risks. Fortunately, the experts at Orkin study the science of mosquitoes and other pests closely so they can help keep them away from your home this summer. To help you better prepare your family to avoid those pesky mosquito bites this summer, A Geek Daddy challenges you to take the Orkin BUZZER BEATER Quiz.

So how did you do on the Orkin BUZZER BEATER Quiz?  Orkin knows the information in this quiz because it invests in developing scientific knowledge of mosquitoes so they can properly understand the best way to address the problems they create and properly eliminate them from residential and commercial properties.  While mosquitoes are a nuisance when you observe and learn about them they are impressive creatures.  In fact when you taking a look from a scientific perspective you have to admit insects in general are quite remarkable.  To encourage children to study the insects that live around us, A Geek Daddy has an Orkin Summer Scientist Bug Catching Kit to giveaway.  Hopefully this will help cultivate an interest in science and nature for a child over the summer.

To be eligible for this giveaway you must follow @Geekdad248 on Twitter and retweet our original contest tweet which is embedded below before May 2, 2016 @ 11:59 pm EST.  Must be a US  resident over the age of 18 to participate.  One entry per person and we'll randomly select someone from all eligible entries to receive the Orkin Summer Scientist Bug Catching Kit.

UPDATE: Congrats to Katrina from Cadillac, Michigan who won the giveaway.
