Not only is this website beyond useful – it also is very interactive. Educators are able to take this material to teach about pests to their class. Additionally, parents may also find this educational website allows their children to play games and read facts while learning about vector-borne disease and control. 

This gives parents a tool to show their kids why those pesky mosquitoes, ticks and other insects need controlled and the importance of disease.

Local schools are able to sign up to have an assembly on the subject by the learning lab!

Additionally, this website could be useful for other counties or even in other states (other than California)! The information given aims toward mosquito awareness. Mosquitos = disease and the more people know about preventing mosquito bites, the better! It helps there are fun ways to learn about these pests.

Insect Toolbox

The Placer County Mosquito and Vector Control District’s Learning Lab provides a “toolbox” of information! Find out what different insects that carry disease, which insects are helpful and how to protect yourself and loved ones from bites. This includes mosquitoes and ticks. 

Not only that, there are print-out coloring pages, word searches and word mazes! Additionally, there are tools for teachers to address these findings to their classes.

Due to recent avenues, the learning lab assemblies are also virtual and available on youtube (check out the video above)! Watch from home or socially distanced in your classroom.

Conclusion

Check and see what resources your state or local government offices have to educate residents! Lots of nice resources are available.

Providing links to these sources will help send traffic to your local public health agencies and also help educate your customers about insects.
