Whoever said pest control has to be boring? Not the guys behind a cockroach ‘fun house’, ARS, that’s for sure. The pop-up, self-assembly trap (around 30RMB for five traps), available in most supermarkets, has a number of ‘rooms’ that are in fact dangerous traps for roaches, including a super sticky ‘glue garden’ and a ‘sweets room’ with a display of poisonous bait masked as coloured candy at its centre, you know, to trick the cockroaches. For a more straightforward (boring!) solution, Green Leaf (Lü Ye, 绿 叶) is a powerful range of cockroach killers that’s available in large pharmacies and online (Amazon, Tmall).
