Time to #BugOut

Insects. Bugs. Creepy, crawly creatures. Some people fear them, but Orkin studies them. We know that every creature has its place on the planet. So whether they harm people or property, or help the environment thrive, they still have a place. We also know that the best way to control pests is to learn as much as we can about them in general, both the bad and the good. Orkin has been studying bugs for 100 years! They even have scientists on their staff to ensure they keep science at the forefront of our work.

Orkin takes their intellectual insect insights and apply them to their business – the business of bugs. In studying bugs to better control them, they have found that they end up being fascinated by them too! They’re curious little creatures full of unexpected complexity. And that’s why they created “The Ecologist” site - to celebrate science and uniqueness of bugs.

I am a teacher and I can tell you that kids are crazy about bugs! In fact, in science class that is all they want to do is look at bugs. I even have students who spend their entire recess watching just one bug. Then of course, they have to bring them over to show me. So I literally have a #BugOut moment every day!

Orkin would like to encourage you to explore the science behind insects - and the vital role that insects have on our world.

Are you ready to check out the world’s scariest bugs? Take a closer look at some of the scariest looking and deadliest arthropods from around the world. I did and let me tell you they are scary. The scariest to me was the Goliath Bird-eating Spider! Eek! This spider is large and hairy, has lots of legs and eyes and inch-long fangs. So yea, pretty scary! Interesting fact though, their venom is only about as toxic to humans as a bee’s venom. Whew. Check them all out and see for yourself.

I encourage you to also like the Orkin Ecologist on Facebook and follow the Orkin Ecologist on Pinterest.
