Judi Roach (center) greets a member of one of the many families who attended the Superior Elementary open house last Thursday evening.

She was inspired to get the cockroaches after attending the National Ag in the Classroom Conference where she met two entomologists, Kristie Reddick and Jessica Honaker also known as "The Bug Chicks."   She acquired the original two cockroaches October, 2021.  They require a temperature of 75 degrees and at least 50 percent humidity in their enclosure and will eat vegetables and fresh fruits.
