Controlling bugs in the home

In the world of homeowning, there are good bugs and bad bugs, but it's a safe bet that one cockroach, termite, or bedbug is one too many. In fact, where there is one of these, there are probably dozens.

Today, we are sharing a quiz to help you understand where bugs fit into our world and when it is best to keep them away. While there are often natural solutions to bug control, sometimes it calls for a bit more aggressive approach to keep your home and family safe from invasive bugs. Education is the key. 

Today, Our Daily Green is offering the Orkin Home Education Kit to award one lucky reader.

The kit includes:
Orkin Home Education Kit

• 2 Orkin Factoids 11x17 Posters
     - Poster #1 - The Pollinators
     - Poster #2 - The Recyclers
• 1 Orkin bug-finding flashlight
• 20 Rubber Toy Creepy Crawly Bugs

To qualify to win, please share one natural solution you have to bug control in the comments below. Entry must be received by September 12, 2013 at midnight EST in order to be eligible. The prize will be sent via FedEx or USPS. No P.O. Boxes please.

One of our favorite solutions is to eliminate fruit flies with a bowl of apple cider vinegar and a few drops of dishsoap. As the fall harvest comes in, it often brings fruit flies, so keep that hint in mind. 

We would like to thank today's sponsor, Orkin, for the prize giveaway.
