Teacher Appreciation Week

Terminix is celebrating the work of educators in schools across the United States during Teacher Appreciation Week.

Valerie Middleton, senior director of Communications explains: "Teachers have been some of America’s greatest heroes over the past year.


"As a company, we wanted to create a fun resource for these hard-working professionals who have continued to adapt and educate our nation’s youth, even in the midst of the ever-changing teaching environment brought on by the pandemic."

In February, Terminix re-launched its Harry’s Big Adventure program, a K-6 educational website and curriculum dedicated entirely to teaching elementary students about the exciting world of bugs. A key component of the program includes educating children through virtual classroom presentations - with the provider of pest control services striving to serve the neighborhoods and communities where its employees live and work by educating students, teachers and parents about insects.


Terminix hopes the program will spread the message that bugs aren’t inherently bad—they only become pests when they are inside homes and businesses. The program also offers discounts for pest control services for teachers and parents of students.


"It’s been a great pleasure to talk to kids about insects and their biology," says regional director, Josh Coble, who has been presenting virtually to young students across the country via the Harry’s Big Adventure program. "We’re so grateful for this opportunity to serve our communities by sharing our knowledge about termites, ants, cockroaches, and many other insects with these wonderful students. They’ve been active, engaged and inquisitive through each presentation, and the teachers have really appreciated having a guest speaker to add some excitement to the virtual days."


To extend its appreciation for teachers, Terminix recently announced a partnership with As part of the partnership, the company is sponsoring the Insect Explorers Classroom Giveaway - a promotion that will see ten lucky teachers win a US $500 Amazon gift card that they can use to buy educational materials for their K-6 classrooms, including bug books, insect displays, bug explorer kits and more. The promotion will be open the entire month of May.
