Michael Bohdan, an exterminator in Plano, Texas, has a strange love/hate relationship with the cockroaches hes hired to kill.
Instead of doing away with the pests, he uses their bodies to build roach art.
He dresses up the dead bugs in kooky costumes and places them in sets which he displays at the Cockroach Hall of Fame and Museum.
For instance, he dressed one roach as Liberoachie, complete with a fancy mini piano, glittery outfit, and fur cape like Liberace.
Bohdan thinks someone with a major fear of the creepy crawlers could easily get over their phobia by looking at the silly scenes hes built.
One petrified patron was able to let go of his roach prejudice after hanging out the museum for a few days, eventually being able to hold a live Madagascar hissing cockroach, which Bohdan keeps as pets.
