Best Replacement For The Terminix Bug

Robert's Pest Control Cockroach

Ever since the giant rotating cockroach at 12th & Lamar crawled off to North Austin to make room for yet another center city coffeehouse, the cityscape has seemed somehow empty. Robert's Pest Control on S. Lamar has come to the rescue, installing a huge neon cockroach that is almost as beguiling as its predecessor. Crafted by Evan Voyles of Neon Jungle (CHECK THIS!!!) and stuck firmly on a 15-foot pole, this happy critter with the elegant tentacles and scurrying legs is a roach that is fast on its way to nowhere. Let's hope it stays that way.
