That was a cool story, not gross as the headline implies. They're Palmetto bugs (to help overcome the roach stigma) and the baby ones are called nymphs and they live on sugar. They're so valued that she gets up to $64 a pound for them. Why not turn her extra house in the countryside (that she's not living in) into a breeding house. Plus it's completely sealed up so they can't get out.

Nidiot: skinink: "A 37-year-old woman in China shares her countryside home with the estimated 100,000 cockroaches she breeds."
I'll never complain about a cat lady again.

Except not only does Yuan not live in the same house, she "sells the roaches after they are drowned in vats of water and then [dried] in the sun", you could suggest that to the cat lady, but the response is likely to be negative.


Yeah, these aren't pets. These are purely  livestock. She probably doesn't even name them.

So, someone farms cockroaches to sell, in a different building to where they live?

Meh.

It's not really hoarding if you're selling the things you're making.

The word "pet" seems to have a pretty broad range of definitions.
