Summer is coming! You can just feel it in the air, can’t you?
The sweet smell of the grill… the green tang of cut grass… the shouts of children as they run though the sprinklers…
Oh. And. The teeny tiny relentless droning of AWFUL MOSQUITOES.
Guys. I hate the little suckers. I am one of those lucky souls that mosquitoes seem to really love. Perhaps it’s because (as my husband always says) I am so sweet.
The Orkin team is here to the rescue!
