Madagascar's For Education

In an effort to raise interest among schoolchildren in science while promoting entomology, Rose Pest Solutions is giving away more than 1,000 Madagascar hissing cockroaches to elementary schools and children’s organizations in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. The Madagascar's for Education program is available on a first-come-first-serve basis while supplies last. The Madagascar Kits include live insects, a plastic habitat, a fact sheet, and care instructions.
