Bizzy Buddies

Teenager Barley and his dad are complete opposites. Barley's dad Frank is a "morning person". Barley is a "night person". Frank is a "Type A". Barley is a "Type B". Frank is high-strung. Barley is low-key.

Barley's dad Frank is a bug exterminator who refuses to allow any insects on his property. Barley is a pacifist vegetarian who wouldn't hurt a fly.

Barley accidentally crashes the family car when he swerves to avoid a caterpillar on the road. Frank devises a way for him to pay off the higher insurance rates. Frank makes Barley work with him over the summer at his company "Bug-Ex", doing pest control and bug extermination!

Sometimes things can get toxic when there are too many disagreements… especially when Frank unearth's Barley's compost manure pile worm farm!
