LONG ISLAND, N.Y. - Suburban Exterminating said it had incredible success with a summer library program, where the company's entomologists shared their bug knowledge with local kids.

The program included jokes, puzzles, games, coloring, word searches, cockroaches and tarantulas, and was presented at several local libraries. Throughout, the kids learned about insect survival and do-it-yourself exterminating. 

The progam was conducted by the company's certified entomologists, Lynn Frank, Bob Weimer and Billy Somerville. They brought along with them the Suburban Exterminating office pets, Bradley the Beagle and Frank the Hamster, which the company said thrilled the children who attended.
