Name A Cockroach After Your Ex This Valentine’s Day

Published by:

You must never take for granted your local exterminator service because they can save the home or business from a pest infestation. Can you imagine sharing the same space with rodents, cockroaches and flies? Not only are pests a nuisance; they are health hazards that must be eradicated immediately.

If you are still bitter about a break-up and want to take revenge this coming Valentine’s Day, you can name the cockroach after the ex. Getting Revenge on My Ex Day is an anti-Valentine promotion that runs until Valentine’s Day. Last year, the promotion was such a big hit that they made it bigger and better for 2020.

There is also Quit Bugging Me Day that is inspired by El Paso Zoo. Cockroaches will be fed to a host of hungry animals from meerkats, primates and birds. One of those cockroaches has your ex’s name. El Paso Zoo ensures concerned guests that the procedures are ethical and follow a behavioural enrichment program.

The diet of animals is regularly enriched with insects to keep them stimulated mentally and physically. Madagascar hissing cockroaches are frozen in an ethical process before they are given to insectivores determined by the zoo veterinarian’s staff.

To join the anti-Valentine promotion, people can submit the name of their ex online. You will be surprised by the number of names that have already been submitted. There are people who are asking whether they can submit more than one name. However, the zoo has warned that the event will be lives streamed in a social media page and names can be read at random.

This type of anti-Valentine event is becoming an international trend. In England, a zoo started a similar event in 2019 and will be doing it again this year. Bronx Zoo that started the trend in 2011 allowed people to name insects after their un-special someone.

If you are having problems with cockroaches, rodents, flies and other pests, your local exterminator service will deal with it quickly and efficiently. It is important to protect your home and family against health hazards. Have your home inspected as soon as you see signs of pest presence.
