Living in Florida, I am quite familiar with the state bird, the mosquito. Summer is right around the corner with feasts full of BBQ, parks full of baseballs and beaches full of friends. Unfortunately, all of these will be full of mosquitoes. Good thing Orkin makes the science of mosquitoes their business.
