Orkin Back to School Prize Pack

Back-to-school time is a great time to #LearnWithOrkin about pest prevention.

Orkin Back to School Prize Pack

It’s back to school time. That means lunches to pack, bedtimes, early wake up calls, and the dreaded homework! The fall is also a time for creepy crawly bugs and insects to invade your home looking for a nice warm place to invade.

I don’t know about your area but it’s been a very weird summer here weather wise. June was full of rain. July and August we had some rain and some very cold days. I should not have to wear jeans/sweatshirts during the day in the summer. That’s just crazy.

The spiders are causing havoc on my deck though! My husband does not stay up at my summer place with me because he works out of town a lot. At home he has a basement apartment. He is over run by spiders too. He’s even named them. He has Larry, Curly and Moe. He says I have one spider here with me named Shep. Can you tell he’s a 3 stooges fan?

Take the Pest Prevention Pop Quiz to find out if you know how to think like a pest!

    We get a big ant problem every summer and they invade the kitchen and bathroom.

  3. Shannon Baas

    About the only pest I’ve had to deal with is lizards.

    I’ll never forget the time I was younger and my sister tried to kill a spider. When she tried to hit it with her shoe, a bunch of baby spiders were on the larger spiders back and crawled off and there were spiders everywhere… eww.

    We moved into a new house & found termites while doing some renovations. Not happy!! We had to get an exterminator & replace floors due to damage. Thanks for the chance!

  6. Emily Benzing

    we had to spray down our whole house.. couldn’t even be in it for a day and our cats had to stay at my grandma’s it was horrific

  7. Liberty

    A poptart was left out and ants invaded the living room!

  8. Jennifer Scheldberg

    I’m not sure if a chipmunk is pest but the first time I brought my husband to our family’s lake cabin a chipmunk had snuck in and was darting around the house. I was terrified and wanted it out but I didn’t want to hurt it either. We ended up using an empty clothes basket flipped upside down as a cage. My husband safely got him out with that.

    We first bought our old farmhouse over a year ago. Right after we moved in and unpacked I found an unwelcome gift in my towel drawer in the kitchen..mouse droppings. It was awful! We immediately set out traps and tossed those towels. We had a pest company come out and have been coming since. no issues! yay!

    I got meal moths in our house from bird food and there are almost impossible to get rid of we have sprayed gotten rid of everything in the cupboards, had the exterminator spray and just when I think they are all gone I find another one

  11. Cheyenne W

    We once had some wasps that set up home in car that we rarely drove.

  12. Patricia Shea-Samul

    Thank you for this opportunity.

  13. Cynthia

    I once had a snake slither around in a crack near my dishwasher. I never found the snake.

  14. Summer B.

    Once I was moving my girls room around and my oldest daughter was helping. I was moving a dresser and all I could hear was my daughter screaming, a snake just went over my foot. I thought maybe she was playing or it could have been something else. I go and look under the bed and sure enough there it was. I got my kids and ran out the house. I had to get my neighbor to get it.

  15. Rebecca Lock

    A squirrel went down a vent and was running in the roof of our basement.

  16. Lisa V.

    Can’t say I have any crazy stories, but I always get freaked out by those cave crickets….the ones that look like a cross between and cricket and a spider? I’m always afraid when I go to smack them with a shoe (or whatever I have), they will jump in my face (because they can jump that high).

  17. Nicole Carter (Weasley)

    It’s not crazy but disgusting! I get ants and fruit flies BAD every summer!

  18. michelle r

    Its summer so the ants are everywhere!!!!

  19. Marty C.

    Adopted a stray cat and promptly had a flea infestation nothing but a professional could get rid of. I will NEVER forget the horror of sitting in synagogue with the baby in my lap and realizing she had fleas crawling in her hair. I still get nightmares.

  20. Elizabeth H.

    We have a family of mice in our kitchen. Have killed 2 so far.

  21. laurie murley

    I don’t have any stories but I spray my house every 3 months to keep the bugs away

  22. natalie yeoman

    i remember a few years ago we ended up having a mouse living in the garage my mom would not go out there for ANYTHING!

  23. Brian E.

    Thank You for the giveaway… I was living in an apartment just after graduating from college, had been there about three months with no pests in sight. I was sitting on the couch one late night watching TV when I heard a rustling sound coming from the front door; went to investigate and found dozens of crickets crawling from a crack between the door frame and the wall into the apartment. I fought them off with windex spray for about 10 minutes until they stopped coming….then vacuumed up the dead. Sealed the crack with toothpaste until I could contact the manager the next AM.
