Museum Pays for Live Cockroaches

The Houston Museum of Natural Science is paying people 25 cents for every live cockroach brought to them. Yes, it now makes "cents" to catch cockroaches! Curator Nancy Greig says the cockroaches will be for a live exhibit of the insects. She says "they are as clean as the area in which they live, and catching them is a great activity for kids." Well, at least for some kids who will definitely grow up to be like a CSI.

If you want to catch some, have a container ready. Cockroaches usually come out at night when everyone's asleep.
