Bugs In Pest Control Plan

25 Sep

This insect, known as the Zyklyd, has been genetically altered to prefer eating fast foods and chocolates over eating vegetables and other crops.  The Chowterlt Chemical Company, located on the planet Edasich in the Draconis Star System initially presented their research as a revolutionary solution to the planet’s pest problem.  But the genetically modified insects have become a problem for merchants, farmers and citizens alike. Apparently the chocolate loving bugs have become the food-of-choice for numerous predators that prefer the chocolate and fast food flavor bugs over other types of insects.

Birds and small rodents seek out the chocolate bugs en mass, leaving populations of other insects, which have not been genetically altered, to grow at alarming rates and destroy crops unhindered. The chocolate loving bugs have moved away from rural areas where junk foods are scarce and are now invading heavily industrialized areas where they are plentiful. They have ruined celebrations for couples after being found in thousands of boxes of chocolates. They swarm junk food hubs and hop onto candy bars across the planet.

Unfortunately, their predators have followed them.  Industrialized areas have become overrun with birds, rodents and small animals seeking out the junk food/chocolate flavored bugs.  Additionally, larger animals, unable to find small animals to feed on, have also followed their prey to these larger populated areas.

The planet’s entire ecosystem has been thrown into chaos and its citizens endangered. Top scientists of the planet’s governments, assembled to address the crisis, say they have finally isolated an isotope which will neutralize the chemicals and return the insects to their original state.

When questioned as to why the bugs were genetically modified to prefer chocolates in the first place, The company’s president, Bubba,  had this to say “when my 3 year old suggested it, it sounded like such a good idea”.
