“Quit Bugging Me” lets scorned lovers get a sort of revenge on their ex-lovers by naming the bugs after them. The roaches are then fed to animals at the zoo.

This year, the zoo will be including animals such as meerkats, primates, birds, and other small mammals.

The animals will be receiving the cockroaches over a 3-day Valentine’s day promotion starting February 14 to the 16.

The El Paso Zoo started the program last year and it quickly went viral across the nation.
