At each library, kids have the chance to get up close and personal with insects, hamsters and other animals. The company said that many children come to the program already as bug experts. For example, Jacob, age 10 from Southampton, told Suburban Exterminating entomologists that a carpenter ant's scientific name was Camponotus pennsylvanicus. Arielle, age 9 from Huntington, knew that a hamster was nocturnal.
The free library program runs for 45 minutes to an hour for third- through fifth-graders. For a complete schedule of the 2018 Summer Library Program, visit http://www.suburbanexterminating.com/summer-event.asp.
