Pest world


No, it's not all four of them incessantly screaming "Mom!" at the same time - it's a website I found. http://www.pestworldforkids.org/

We found it yesterday and I played "Archibald's adventure" with mexicanjumpingbain and butterbain and loved it. I left stringbain to the detective game himself. Obviously he enjoyed it because I had to pull out the big "right now!" to get him to come to breakfast. It's not the most high tech website, but I like it because 5 year olds can navigate without constant supervision.

We live on a farm and there's hardly a day that goes by we don't find a turtle or a beetle or a frog or something that must be cared for. One of the coolest things ever appeared just a few weeks ago; stringbain found a huge Luna moth. I am all for education when it arrives at your doorstep. So we "study" insects, amphibians and reptiles - all of which are in abundance in our part of the world.

The website just takes it one step further on things we do not ever plan on collecting - mosquitoes and flies and other pests. Hope you enjoy it too!

I'm writing on behalf of the National Pest Management Association and wanted to thank you personally for visiting our children's web site and for talking about us on your blog. We made a lot of new updates to www.pestworldforkids.org since July and would love it if you would visit us again to test out the new features. We added a lot of educational materials including a report writing center and a science fair section. For your son that is a fan of the Pest Detective game, he can now write his own using the lesson plans that can be used at home or in the classroom. And, if you have pest problems and need some advice, you can also visit www.pestworld.org. Enjoy and thanks again!
