Throwback to Past Children’s Library Shows
We always look forward to meeting the children, their parents and the librarians at our summer library events. Below are few of our library show highlights.
The kids at Rogers Memorial Library were going crazy this past Thursday, eager to hold some of the insects which Suburban Exterminating brought to the event. Our entomologists excited the kids with jokes, insects, prizes, and they even brought our office pup, Bradley. The Southampton kids were definitely eager to participate in anything our staff showed them!
Many children come to our program already bug experts. Jacob, age 10 from Southampton, told us that a carpenter ant's scientific name was Camponotus pennsylvanicus. Arielle, age 9 from Huntington, knew that a hamster was nocturnal. The children want to know everything from "Does a tarantula sting?" to "What does a roach eat?"
Smithtown Main Library said “The kids had so much fun with your Future Scientists program, that if you are interested, we would love to have you back!” More library feedback includes “The information you provided to the children in the program was fun and interesting.” And “We had a great time learning about insects and meeting your little critters!”
More Children’s Activities
At our Kid's Club, children can download a picture of their favorite insect and color it in their favorite colors. The different bugs they can color include Ants, Bees, Caterpillars and Butterflies, as well as a maze. With the help of a parent, any future bug expert can begin their journey by mailing in the finished picture to Suburban Exterminating to win a prize!
The pest control industry also has a great interactive site that allows kids to identify pests, play games, and access tons of free information on the world of creepy-crawlers. It is also designed for teachers, providing lesson plans and science kits for an enhanced classroom experience.
Suburban Exterminating of Long Island wants to make kids more aware and excited about the bugs around them. By learning about the lives of common insects, kids will be less afraid, if they see them up close. By exploring around their homes, kids can learn an incredible amount about insects.
