HAHAHAHAHA I love it, they would make a little click as he walks.

What a choice name ‘Armageddon Pest control’. I’d use them just because of the name. I have the imagery in my head of a giant astroid smashing down on a cockroach civilisation and a religious, crazy, hobo cockroach with a sign over his body warning about the end of the word, and screaming out I told you so!! (The little sign is made out of the top of a milk carton and he is wearing peanut shells for shoes.)

Amalgamated Pest Control offer a 12 month warranty on their services. Not sure about prices, it’d be worth giving them a ring.
