Imagine living next to this kind of neighbor.
As weird as it sounds, a Chinese woman uses her house as a breeding ground for 100,000 cockroaches.
The woman, Yuan Mexia, breeds the cockroaches because they are popular to use in Chinese medicine.
Like a joke, the woman claims the foul smelling insects are her “children and babies” , pampering them with sugary foods and warm stove so ‘her children’ can get enough rest.
But it is a tough kind of love as Mexia packs off the roaches once they get to a certain size and sells them off to pharmaceutical companies for around $100 a kilo – but not alive of course.
She kills them by drowning in vats of water and drying them in the sun.
