| August 17, 2011

FAIRFAX, Va. —The Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA), which serves as the public outreach arm of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), announces the debut of its second season of “Pest Quest,” the educational children’s show that teaches kids about the fascinating world of insects, rodents and small wildlife. New this season is a feature called “Critter Crafts,” which directs viewers to a series of bug-inspired arts and crafts videos on KidCritterCrafts.com. The new season of “Pest Quest,” is available at NPMA’s websites, PestWorld.org and PestWorldForKids.org.

A new group of energetic pre-teens host the show back in their colorful science lab, and topics delve further into what makes insects, rodents and wildlife so interesting. From red mouse tears to glowing scorpions to flying squirrels— there are many pest facts sure to keep kids engaged. The Critter Crafts videos create a new layer of entertainment for young viewers and offers parents and teachers fun activities to share with children.  PPMA investors will again be able to link to the Pest Quest show from their own sites and will now have the option of including the Critter Crafts logo and link as an added bonus.
 

“The response to the first season of “Pest Quest” was so great that we had to create more of this entertaining and educational content for viewers,” says Missy Henriksen, executive director of PPMA. “With the addition of Critter Crafts and new fun facts, we hope that children will further develop an interest in the fascinating world of entomology and also learn about the importance of keeping some of these species out of our homes where they can become pests posing risks to our health and property.”

Twenty-four episodes have been produced for the second season of “Pest Quest,” looking at pests from all over the world.  New episodes will be posted to the Pest Quest Channel twice a month.  Following the success of providing season one of “Pest Quest” to MagRack for distribution on OnDemand, season two will also be available in Mag Rack’s Kid’s section for optimal viewing potential.  This will bring “Pest Quest” and the industry’s core messaging of the risks pests pose to human health and property and the importance of contacting a professional directly into the homes of consumers across the country.

All industry members are able to direct customers to this free family and school-friendly content as part of their community programs. PPMA Guardians and Contributors are exclusively able to feature the Critter Crafts logo on their company sites to showcase their commitment to and support of children’s education.

PPMA has a variety of programs designed for use in the classroom and on the family computer for children in grades K-8. Lesson plans, science projects, report writing programs, interactive games and other fun facts are on PestWorldForKids.org. The Pest Quest Channel, furthers NPMA’s public commitment to science education.
