...and no that's not an innuendo for terrible people!
A Chinese company is working to put the creepy crawly pests to work.
A company called Shandog Qiaobin Agricultural Technology runs a plant that gathers kitchen waste from homes and restaurants and feeds it to billions of cockroaches, as a new form of waste disposal.
The roaches can then be fed to pigs or other livestock as a high-protein food source.
Shandong Qiaobin says they process 50 tons of kitchen waste a day, and they hope to have three more cockroach plants up and running by next year.
