What are pests? No, not your in-laws. According to Pest World for Kids, they're "animals out of place. Out in nature, they're just doing their jobs. But when they move into our homes and yards, we call them pests."

Pest World for Kids invites all of us young and young-at-heart to explore the world of pests. There's great stuff on this site, including an A-Z pest guide, four different pest games, advice and guidelines on how to write a pest report, science fair project ideas, and even lesson plans for teachers (K-8), developed by the National Science Teacher Association and the National Council of Teachers of English.

You can even send a "pestcard" to your BFF. Show this site to your budding little entomologist, or simply log on to overcome your fear of the multi-legged creatures. Either way, it's the pest of both worlds.
