Horrific Discovery Shut Down Trick-or-Treating In Michigan Neighborhood


This year's trick-or-treat events in a Michigan neighborhood were canceled due to fears that cockroaches would accompany trick-or-treaters home from the neighborhood's vacant house.

"It doesn’t matter whether you’re a tidy person, a hoarder, roaches come in all these houses," said one resident who lives near the infested home in Wyandotte. The city is located about 11 miles south of Detroit.

Due to the infestation, city officials decided to cancel trick-or-treating near 20th Street, closing the area's sidewalks on Monday. Officials worry that stepping on cockroach eggs could spread them throughout the neighborhood.

"It is in the best interest of citizens to close 20th street and the sidewalks from Eureka to Grove on Monday, October 31, 2022, from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm," said city officials in a letter to residents shutting down sidewalks in anticipation of Halloween.

"Barricades and signage will be placed on the street and at sidewalks at Grove, the intersections of Orchard and Pine, and at Eureka, closing the street and sidewalk to vehicles and pedestrians. It is recommended that Trick 'r Treating be discouraged in this area," the letter added.

"Remember when the kids were little, and they drag their costumes, and they’re dragging their bags, well from my understanding, you can step on roach eggs, and you can take them home, you can spread them. I would not want them to be taken home to mom and dad’s house," Wallace added.

City engineer Greg Mayhew said forbidding the spooky holiday tradition will prevent "further roach migration."
