The museum had to shut down two months ago after 7,000 of its exotic bugs were stolen. The rare insects and reptiles that had been stolen were valued at over $40,000.

Orkin, a pest control company, donated $10,000 to the museum. “We’re usually okay with removing bugs, but this week’s insect heist at the Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion has us wanting to give the bugs back,” Orkin said in their announcement on social media.

They offered a $1 for every like on their social media post and $5 for every share up to $10,000 to help the museum.
