Science Education

At Orkin, we’re passionate about the science of bugs. That’s why our entomologists and pest control experts worked together to create fun, interactive resources to help children become as passionate about science as we are.

Start With Science

Everything we do starts with science. And America’s future does, too. That’s why we’ve partnered with DonorsChoose.org to provide funds for science and math projects in public schools across the nation. Help us inspire America’s youngest scientists to dream big by donating to a project in your community today!
