Yup, this is the
Queen of Quirky! In Plano,
Texas, pest control
specialist Michael Bohdan put a whole new twist on these creepy,
crawly little critters, when he opened up the Cockroach Hall of Fame in his retail store, The Pest Shop.
Featuring dead bugs dressed as celebrities
and historical figures, this just might be the one time in your life
that a cockroach puts a smile on your face. On your visit, you’ll see
cockroach displays featuring "Liberoachi,” "The Combates Motel,” and
"David Letteroach,” among dozens of others.
In addition to the
"dead" cockroaches, Michael also displays Madagascar Hissing
Cockroaches that are very much alive. These African Cockroaches
are three to four inches long and nearly an inch thick. When you pick
these cockroaches up, they hiss at you! Yikes, I am so

If you still haven’t had your "fill” of
dead bugs, be sure to sample some "Larvets Original Worm Snacks" in a
BBQ, cheddar cheese and mexican spice. Try the yummy delicious
barbecue flavored Worm Snacks. Mmm, mmm, mmm!
As you might
imagine, the members of Plano’s Chamber of Commerce, were at first,
opposed to the attention focused on this museum. But Michael Bohdan,
founder of the Cockroach Hall of Fame, is
pleased to announce that they’ve finally come around.
Michael Bohdan is a pest
control specialist with over 20 years of experience, and The Pest Shop not
only features this quirky museum, but also all manner of products to help
you get rid of these pesky creatures.
