Just for Fun - Orkin Back-To-School Scientific Fact or Fake App & Prize Package!

While there are certainly people who like bugs and find them interesting; I am not one of these people. It is, however; possible my grandsons will be as they tend to find bugs interesting. So, when I was invited to participate in the Orkin Scientific Fact or Scientific Fake Back to School Bug Myth App and Give-Away, I thought it sounded like fun!
“Daddy longlegs are poisonous.”
“Mosquitoes prefer adults over children.”
“Ants can survive underwater.”
You’ve heard the myths about bugs before. 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.
And, while you are at it, enter to win the fun Orkin Scientific Back-to-School PRIZE PACK which includes: 
- Clip-on Fisheye Lens (iPhone, Galaxy, Android compatible) 
- Orkin On-the-Go Drink Tumbler 
- Orkin Drawstring Bag 
- Orkin “Field Notes” Notebook w/ Pen

Sound like fun? You'll find the App on the right side of grandma's cookie jar and the drawing for the give-away will be on September 5, 2014. You’ve heard the myths about bugs before, now it’s time to debunk them. Take the Scientific Fact or Scientific Fake Quiz to test your knowledge! Watch every episode of Scientific Fact or Scientific Fake and find out the answers to these age-old bug myths.

And for the specifics on entering the Back to School - First, you must be over the age of 18 and live in the USA. You will receive entries if you take the Scientific Fact or Scientific Fake Quiz and comment with your result below. As an additional giveaway entry, watch every episode of Scientific Fact or Scientific Fake and comment on which is your favorite. You will receive one more entry if you contribute your own bug myths or your go-to response to bugs - for example, at my house the "go-to response" to spiders is to kill all spiders until they are dead and then kill them again! More entries are available if you Tweet using the #OrkinMan hashtag and have your audience mention grandma's cookie jar on Twitter (comment below to let me know which of these you have done!)
