Orkin Bug Home Prevention Prize Pack Giveaway

*Disclaimer - The giveaway prize is being sponsored by Orkin. In no way did this effect my post.  All of my opinions expressed in this post are one-hundred percent honest and true.*

You know that phrase, "Good night, don't let the bed bugs bite"?  Well that's exactly what I have in mind when I bring you this exciting APP and giveaway!  

What exactly is a bed bug you may be wondering. A bed bug is a parasite that feeds exclusively on blood.  Bed bugs thrive on warm homes and especially on or inside of sleep areas including bedding, where they tend to hide.  I don't know about you, but the thought of bed bugs scares me, so I am willing to do whatever it takes to prevent my house from being infested by these very bothersome parasites. One way is to cover your pillows in pillowsafe protectors. 

Check out the chart below to learn some must know facts about bed bugs! 



And be sure to check out the APP, where you can take a bed bugs quiz!, and watch a short video clip.



WIN IT:  One of my lucky readers is going to receive a Orkin Bug Home Prevention Prize Pack. The prize pack includes (2) Mattress safe - PillowSafe Protectors. This is a $30.00 value!!!

I hate bedbugs so much!! Thankfully, they're not very common in Israel. I have yet to hear of anyone having an infestation. Love the idea of the pillow for bacteria though.. my pillows are gross without the pillowcases.. :(

I think I would die if I ever got bed bugs in my house. Whenever we travel, I aLways check the bed for bed bugs first thing.

Bed bugs are a growing problem in the US right now. They're so gross! I heard about this coming home from India last year and since I had to purchase a new mattress, I bought a bed bug cover to go with it and put it on the first day. I do a lot of traveling and I wasn't taking any chances they would sneak home on a suitcase and ruin my new bed.

Here in KY we always sadly have bugs. From ants to spiders I am always looking for new ways to protect my kids.

Ashley Gill said...

The idea of bed bugs being in my house makes me want to gag! I was at the pharmacy last week and a guy was asking the pharmacist how to rid of them. oh my gosh.

Beth said...

Pillow protectors are so important! We use them, too, to minimize allergies.

Amber Nelson said...

Whenever I travel, I freak out about bed bugs then worry that I'm bringing home that garbage. Anything to help ease the worries is great.

We used Orkin for our homes for years in Florida. We just moved and I need to find out if they are in our new area. They always did a great job and taught us a few tricks over the years.

Gingermommy said...

Our area had a huge bed bug problem and it made me a bit nervous. This looks like a great idea. especially for people like me who do a lot of travelling. We can take our own pillow and know it is safe

AMBER EDWARDS said...

What a great prize to win! I hate the idea of bed bugs.

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

Pam said...

We stayed at a (nice) hotel once and found a bed bug. It was pretty gross.

Bed Bugs are one of my fears since I travel so much. I took the quiz and I am a Bed Bug Brainiac.

The Flying Couponer said...

Great giveaway! This seems like an amazing solution!

Teresa Moody said...

I hate bed bugs-eww!! I would hate to find any at the hotel I stayed at.

Pam said...

I am a Bed Bug Braniac. LOL. I have read a lot about bed bugs in the past. I no longer bring my suitcases in the house after a trip. They are stored in sealed bags in our garage storage area.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

I am sitting here itching now - just the thought of bed bugs - yuck! x

Mel Cole said...

It's scary to have bed bugs! I'm glad orkin is a solution.

Marielle Altenor said...

Just listening to that woman talking is making me itchy!!

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

This is great and quite useful - I definitely would want this myself, too. Those itchiness and such we tend to get from our bed is the cause of breakouts on our skin too.

Annie said...

I was scouring our latest hotel room looking to see if there were bed bugs, haha. Great infographic :)

Amanda Love said...

I don't worry too much about bed bugs but I'm wary about hotels and never do motels. I can't imagine what is on there beds.

Mandy Carter said...

Working in the hotel industry all my life, I am very familiar with bed bugs. It is crazy how they get brought in. ANd such a pain to get rid of in a hotel room!

valmg said...

Knock wood, we've escaped encountering them to date. I understand they can be very tricky to deal with.

Nikki said...

The whole idea of bed bugs really freaks me out! I remember when NYC was having issues. They're too close to me for comfort, I was afraid to sleep in hotels for months!

Mommy 2 J.A.M. said...

I KNOW of two people who have had bed bugs and I am so frightened to get them . I hate traveling for that reason. Thank you so much for sharing and I am going to invest in those pillowcases for everyone in my house. Love that it helps with dust. I am very allergic to dust, just got my allergy tests done last week. Thanks for the tips

becca said...

I got Brainiac but considering how many years I freaked out about bed bugs due to allergies i'm not surprise. These protectors are awesome we have some now but need new ones.

Angie Barrett said...

I love those protectors! I have them for my pillows and mattress!

Annemarie said...

Thank you this is so great I am always so frightened when i got to a hotel.

April Mims said...

We have always had mattress protectors on our beds. Even the thought of bed bugs makes my skin crawl.
