Seems that some folks in Australia are falling in love with the cute, cuddly cockroach?
Sure they're low maintenance...cockroaches are notoriously hard to kill but I simply cannot comprehend how one can keep himself from trying. Apparently people in Australia have not yet discovered the original low maintenance pet: the fish.
Call them what you want: litter bugs, rain beetles or macrobugs. They're still cockroaches and they would have a very short life expectancy in this house.
