Previously, I posted about the several species of Cryptocercus wood roaches and the species descriptions. One species described in the 1999 paper, Cryptocercus garciai, was named after Rock Muscian, Jerry Garcia, of the Greatful Dead. It has been noted that Jerry Garcia and the Greatful Dead were associated with roaches of a different sort. There is an additional connection. Garcia teamed with David Grisman to produce an album in 1993, “For Kids Only”, containing the song, “There ain’t no bugs on me”. The song was later made into a children’s book, released in 1999.
