TROY, Mich.– In an effort to raise interest among school children in science while promoting entomology,professionals from Troy, Michigan-based Rose Pest Solutions are giving awaymore than 1,000 Madagascar hissing cockroaches to elementary schools and children’s organizations in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.  The Madagascar Giveaway Program is available on a first come, first served basis while supplies last and include live insects, a plastic habitat, a fact sheet andcare instructions. There is a limit of two (2) habitats per school or organization.

“We hope our Madagascar Giveaway Program will motivate children to learn more about biology and the sciences while having a little fun caring for this amazing insect,” said H. Russell Ives, president of Rose Pest Solutions.  “With so many science-based problems facing our society today, a good science education is vital for our young people.”

The Madagascar hissing cockroach is one of several similar species native to the island of Madagascar that lives on the forest floor near rotten logs.  They are large, non-biting insects with a relatively long life cycle that are fun to observe and easy to care for.  Because they are sub-tropical insects, they will not survive in our temperature climate and cannot survive inside a building without care.

Teachers and instructors interested in the program should contact Barb Craig, marketing manager for Rose Pest Solutions, at (248) 824-7040 or via email at bcraig@rosepestsolutions.com.  For more information about Rose Pest Solutions and its Madagascar Giveaway Program, visit www.rosepestsolutions.com.
