Clark Pest Leaves a Lasting Impression with 2,000 6th Graders!

 

Thursday April 5th, 2012

The Clark Pest Control Bug Zoo left a lasting impression at a local event called Planet Party. Planet Party is an “environmental celebration” for all sixth graders in the Manteca Unified School District which focuses on environmental stewardship. Throughout the day we would recieve classes of 30-35 students, starting with a presentation about insects and arachnids then moving on to a handling activity where the students could handle a Madasgascar Hissing cockroach and a Whip Scorpion. After handling the students would move up to the Bug Challenge "Eat a Bug, Get a Backpack".

"The level of excitement among the students was also heightened once they entered the Bug Zoo that was the main feature inside the Clark Pest Control booth. Among the main attractions were exotic bugs such as the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach which some of the braver students handled. The students also had the opportunity to taste test three types of flavored larvae. For their bravery and adventurous nature, they were rewarded with a tote bag courtesy of the pest-control company."

That is one big roach! I can't imagine touching that, it's gross. Even the smaller ones creeps me out.

This student was brave enough to hold this kind of pests. I hope it's not really dangerous but cockroach are dirty.
