This undated photo provided by Orin McMonigle shows one of the few pest species, Periplaneta americana, a white eye mutation that is no longer known to exist in the wild and has been maintained in captivity since 1943. McMonigle says that if pet roaches were to escape, the only danger would be to the insects themselves. They can't survive in the typical home, where the temperature and humidity are unsuitable and they can't find food. (AP Photo/Orin McMonigle) less
