Terminix Launches Nationwide Bug Education Program

Terminix Bug Education ProgramDo you like bugs? Many kids are fascinated by bugs and like to learn more about them. Terminix wants to keep classrooms buzzin’ for elementary kids, so we have relaunched Harry’s Big Adventure program in partnership with the Audubon Nature Institute. The program, which includes an educational website and curriculum, is dedicated entirely to teaching and engaging students in grades K-6 about the exciting world of bugs.

Audubon Nature Institute is excited to partner with Terminix to revive Harry’s Big Adventure and inspire a new generation to make a positive impact on the natural world. Insects are some of the most important and least understood organisms on our planet, and our team of expert entomologists can’t wait to bring their fascinating world directly into K-6 classrooms through interactive virtual programming made possible by the generous support from Terminix. ~ Audubon Nature Institute President and CEO Ron Forman

Many students are still learning virtually throughout Louisiana during the COVID-19 pandemic. Terminix revived its program in a way to bring bug education into classes virtually. Terminix is leveraging both in-house technical experts and professional educators from the world-renowned Audubon Nature Institute. Terminix entomology experts are equally dedicated to providing students and children with entomology education.

The entire Terminix Team on the Southshore, Northshore and River Parishes are excited for the launch of Harry’s Big Adventure program. ~ Joe Martin, entomologist at Terminix.
