Museum Pays Cash for Live Cockroaches

A Houston museum is paying cash for live cockroaches as it seeks to populate a new exhibit.
The 25-cent-per-bug offer comes from the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
The center is trying to secure 1,000 live cockroaches for an updated insect display.
Curator Nancy Greig says cockroaches are as clean as the area in which they live, and catching them is a great activity for kids.
People wanting to get sell the usually unwanted creatures can do so starting next Tuesday.
After the museum has purchased 1,000 cockroaches, anyone else offering the insects will get a pass to use after the Brown Hall of Entomology opens May 25th.
