The Bug Girls

Who Are The Bug Girls?

Hi! We are The Bug Girls of Rose Pest Solutions. We are on a mission to encourage young women to pursue careers in science! Did you know that in the pest management industry, only 4% of employees are women?! By encouraging girls to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) we can change those statistics.

Erin, Janelle and Anna (from L to R above), Rose Pest Solutions’ Marketing Team is changing that narrative. Whether they’re giving mosquito advice on WGN or crafting paper butterflies at Chicago’s Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, The Bug Girls are constantly working to share their passion for public health, community education, and pollinator awareness. Learn more about what each Bug Girl brings to the table.

Collectively, we agree that the best part of our jobs is the variety of ways we get to make a positive change in our communities, paving the way for others to follow in our footsteps. 🌻🦋

The Bug Girls Are Putting Kids First

Children are our future! Inspiring a child to pursue science today may lead to life-changing future discoveries. The ability to invest in partnerships that reach future scientists and entomologists gives us great pride. Our partners include children’s museums, schools, girl scouts, park districts, zoos, and nature museums. We also keep a continuously growing list of resources for bug-lovers.

For Teachers

Pestworldforkids.org is a great teaching resource organized by grade level by our industry’s National Pest Management Association (NPMA). The site follows education standards from the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

What Have The Bug Girls Been Up To?

The three of us have been doing so many amazing things! We love meeting new people and making new friends! And we are here for YOU.

  • Just this year, we joined forces with The Girl Scouts! The Bug Girls are working on special programming to help scouts of various age groups achieve badges in bugs, nature, pollinators, gardening, and more. We’re even brainstorming to create our very own badge! Stay tuned to follow our journey!
  • Several of Rose’s branch offices joined Northwestern University and Bernie’s Book Bank in supporting their project “Books for Buckets”. 240 little ones who participated so wholeheartedly and the extra determined 63 readers who received the grand prize!
  • We sponsor the Nature Museum’s new exhibit “Weather to Climate: Our Changing World”, which is now on display through next year! Weather and climate have EVERYTHING to do with bug and rodent populations. There’s something for all ages to learn in this exhibit. Plan a visit soon to check it out!
  • The Bug Girls made some media appearances on WGN, Home Sweet Home Chicago, and other media networks throughout the last year!

The last couple of years challenged local businesses in many ways, but the Bug Girls at Rose Pest Solutions didn’t skip a beat when it came to dedication for the communities they serve.

Join in Our Love For Nature

At Rose Pest Solutions, we put ecosystems above profits.

We’re not anti-bug. We respect the role insects play in our world, and their importance in our ecosystem. We love learning about what’s cool, what’s fascinating, and even what’s gross in the natural world. We want to share that knowledge.

The Bug Girls love sharing with the community the fun and fascinating world of insects. We’re committed to protecting your homes, and to protecting the vital role insects play in our ecology.
