Designed for teachers in grades K-5, and created by entomologists, this program gives an overview on insects and rodents, the good they do for the environment, and the bad they can do (spread disease, destroy property, etc.) when they become a pest. The presentation also explores how the professional pest control industry can be an excellent career choice for those interested in biology and public health.
The program can be used by anyone who would like to share our passion for entomology. The program can be presented in schools, summer camps, scouting groups, day care centers or children activity centers, to name a few. The places this program can be presented are limitless and our hope is that a network of young entomologists might grow and eventually find their way into a career involving insects.
