Visit Clark and the Clark Pest Control Bug Zoo at the 2015 Lodi Grape Festival

What’s not to like about a festival that features some of the tastiest selection of wines and food in the state of California?


The annual Lodi Grape Festival, scheduled for this coming Thursday through Sunday, celebrates northern San Joaquin Country’s abundant agricultural offerings, including its prized zinfandel grapes. There will be plenty of good food, wine tastings, and entertainment, as well as exhibitors showing off their wine-themed wares to the more than 65,000 visitors expected to attend.

Clark Pest Control is a proud sponsor of this valley tradition, and invites customers and festival attendees to visit our booth, located in the Clark Eco-Venture Pavilion, during the event. The booth will feature the famous Clark Bug Zoo, which lets visitors get up close and personal with a range of fascinating arthropods that share our environment.

In addition to the Bug Zoo, members of the Clark team will be on hand to show off a restored 1950s-vintage Clark Pest Control service truck, and to answer any questions you might have about pests that may be bugging you and your family.

Other activities scheduled to take place in the Clark Eco-Venture Pavilion include sessions on how to build your own radio-controlled model airplane and the Lodi Serpentarium, which will feature false water cobras, Burmese pythons, rainbow boas, anacondas, monitor lizards, tortoises, geckos, and frogs!

The Clark Bug Zoo, a favorite of festival visitors and the Clark Man, will host shows on Thursday, September 17 (4-7 p.m.), Friday, September 18 (1-5 p.m.), and Saturday, September 19 (12-4 p.m.).

Clarks’ resident Bug Zookeeper Fred Speer tells the Clark Man that he will be bringing a wide selection of exotic and fascinating arthropods for visitors to view close up and hold if they wish.

From demonstrations featuring tarantulas and scorpions, to putting a Madagascar hissing cockroach in the palm of your hand, the Bug Zoo has something for everyone. Other arthropods scheduled to make an appearance at the festival include pseudo scorpions.

Until next time I’m the Clark Man. Thanks for helping me keep unwanted pests out of your home.
