PRESS RELEASE – IS YOUR EX A REAL COCKROACH?
Entomica – Sault Ste. Marie’s new, and already well-loved, interactive insectarium – is
celebrating Valentine’s Day with Cockroaches this year.
Saultites are invited to join in the fun by having one of Entomica’s Cockroaches named after
their ex-partner. Cockroaches will be on display in the Entomica Insectarium for visitors to
peruse over the Valentine’s Day Weekend, February 13th and 14th. Not to worry – it’s all in
good fun – our friendly cockroaches aren’t hurt in the naming process!

across – including dead animals.
