Wait a minute…a pest control company made STEM programs for kids? What is THAT all about?

What you thought you knew about protecting public health has evolved. We’re not exterminators. That’s a descriptor of the past when everything revolved around chemicals. Today, being a pest management professional encompasses science, technology, chemistry, math, psychology and interpersonal skills to find a healthy balance between humans and nature. Sounds pretty STEM-my, don’t you think?

Making an Impact

For a few years now, Rose’s Bug Girls have been making an impact in the communities we serve with educational school visits, Girl Scout programs, summer camp activities and various sports and museum partner projects. We love sharing our passion for science and environmental health with all ages. We have so much fun in the process that kids don’t even realize they’re learning valuable information for life!

Superheroes In Training

Public Health is VITAL to our well-being and our food supplies. We need more public health superheroes in this world to make sure disease doesn’t break out! So we’re educating kids (and re-educating adults) about all the important scientific knowledge that goes into a career in public and environmental health. And it’s AWESOME.

Girl Scout Spark Days

Did you know that nationally, only 7% of pest management professionals are women? At Rose, 32% of our staff members are women! We think that’s the bees’ knees. Rose partnered up with the Girl Scouts of Chicagoland and Greater Northwest Indiana a year or so ago and created a program that lets scouts explore all the different careers associated with our industry. Girls like bugs too, you know!!

Rose and sister company, Franklin Pest Solutions, host two Spark Days each year, where 30 Brownies and Juniors spent a few hours doing various hands-on activities associated with being an Entomologist, a Beekeeper, a Pest Management Professional, a Marketing Specialist, a Customer Care Representative and more.

Healthier Together

We’re so grateful for all the neighbors and friends we’ve made through these programs. The support means the world to us. Every kid (and parent) will come away from one of these visits knowing way more about the natural world around them than they ever thought they could. And that’s super cool.
