Pest Control Company Will Pay You $2,000 to Let It Release 100 Cockroaches Into Your Home

A North Carolina pest control company is offering to pay homeowners $2,000 if they agree to let it release 100 American cockroaches into their households so it can test a new extermination technique for a period of 30 days. If you live in the continental United States and want to make a quick couple of grand, go to The Pest Informer website and sign up for their ongoing experimental program. The deal requires the written approval of the homeowner to have the entire experiment filmed by technicians. So, what happens if the experimental pest control technique fails? If cockroaches are still present in your home after the agreed-upon 30 days, the company will still pay you the $2,000, plus they will employ tried-and-true extermination techniques to ensure that your home is roach-free before they leave. The company has already received 2,200 applications, but applications are being accepted through July 31st, so you still have a shot.
