At least one million cockroaches have escaped a farm in China where they were being bred for use in traditional medicine, a report said.
The cockroaches fled the facility in Dafeng, in the eastern province of Jiangsu, for surrounding cornfields earlier this month after an “unknown perpetrator” destroyed the plastic greenhouse where they were raised, the Modern Express newspaper said.
Disease control authorities have sent five investigators to the area to come up with a plan to stamp out the insects.
Farm owner Wang Pengsheng invested more than 100,000 yuan (USD 16,000) in 102 kilograms of Periplaneta americana eggs after spending six months developing a business plan, the report Friday said.
The cockroach is generally considered a pest, but believers in traditional Chinese medicine — which uses both plants and animals, including endangered species — say extracts from it can treat diseases including cancer, reduce inflammation and improve immunity.
By the time the greenhouse was damaged, more than 1.5 million cockroaches had hatched and were being fed food including “fruits and biscuits” every day, Wang was quoted as saying.

God’s creation was once perfect. Most of the disasters on the face of the Earth are man made.
The most famous, but also mostly forgotten, are the stockpiles of nuclear weapons. There is enough of them to kill us all in a matter of 60 minutes. If Jesus the Messiah did not hold the fingers of the dictators away from the launching buttons.
It is fruitful of bell man as a monster, when it comes to his rebellion against God, in particular when he tries to play God. In today’s science, there is a race to create a man, and prove that God is not the creator. The message is: “There is no God. Man is the creator”.
There are also other man made disasters in the pipeline. A million creepy cockroaches inside China is of course one of the lesser evils.
Behold: Man is a destructive being, and deserve nothing but to spend eternity in Hell. In his pit of sins, he will face judgment and perish.
But God of the Bible so loved the World, that He offers us salvation. Jesus the Messiah took the punishment for our sins. So that all who accept their sins and rebellions, and repent, will not face judgment, but have eternal life. Amen.
