The Instagram account is naming the roaches and adding humor to the situation. 

Videos and pictures can be summited to the account. They are then posted with a humorous caption.

One DHS parent said it’s hilarious.

“This is Rob, found near Mr. Shiffler’s room. RIP, Sweetie. Thank you for your submission. Keep those cockroaches coming,” Elise Williams said. “I think it’s hilarious and if it brings attention to a problem that needs to be solved, well that’s great too.”

The Instagram page has 60 posts and more than 300 followers.

The school district said there’s nothing unusual about the number of bugs found.
