While there’s plenty to love about the holidays, such as food, family or football, awkward conversations are as common at Thanksgiving as ants at a picnic – whether it’s politics, money or dating. That’s why Terminix created ‘The Pest Way Out,’ a handy guide of pest-themed responses to common questions to help you find the best way to pivot any awkward conversation away from you to bug facts. So when your family asks yet again why you are still single, you can inform them that you are thinking about taking up dance lessons because you heard that male jumping spiders use a dance routine to attract mates.

Terminix knows that loaded conversation topics can be as cringeworthy as a mosquito’s buzz, so they encourage homeowners to look to ‘The Pest Way Out’ of a conversation for support throughout the holiday season. And, they’ll give one lucky winner a gift card that can be used for a post-Thanksgiving vacation to snooze off their turkey on the beach.

“In addition to keeping homes pest-free at Thanksgiving, we also wanted to do our part to help eliminate those unwanted pesty conversations at the dinner table by providing convenient, easy-to-use conversation changers,” said Matthew Loos, Terminix vice president, marketing and sales effectiveness. “’The Pest Way Out’ is an easy way to take a more light-hearted approach to potentially uncomfortable topics.”

To get ‘The Pest Way Out’ responses and enter to win the gift card that can be used for a post-Thanksgiving getaway, click here by midnight on Thursday, November 28 1. For more information on helping protect your home and family from pests, visit Terminix.com or call 1-800-TERMINIX.
