*A North Carolina pest company is offering to pay $2,000 to homeowners who allow the release of 100 cockroaches into their house. The company, The Pest Informer, said the 30-day study will allow its pest technicians to film the process in an effort to monitor and analyze a”specific pest control technique.” 

The company is looking for about five to seven households located in the U.S. to participate in the experiment. 

Insider writes, “the company promises in its post that it will use traditional cockroach treatment options if the new technique does not clear out the infestation by the end of the 30-day period.”

During the 30-day study, homeowners are not allowed to use any other pest-control products.

Per the company’s website: “We are currently hiring 5-7 household owners to allow us to release ~100 American cockroaches into your home, and give us permission to film, and test out a specific cockroach treatment.”

Rules of the Study:

  • You must own the home or have written approval from the homeowner.
  • You must be 21 years or older to qualify.
  • You must be located in the Continental United States
  • All tested cockroach treatments will be family and pet safe.
  • You must not try any additional cockroach treatments during the duration of the study.
  • At the end of the study, if the cockroach infestation hasn’t been eliminated, we will use traditional cockroach treatment options at no cost to you.
  • The duration of this study will be approximately 30 days.

The Pest Informer says they have “over 20 years in the industry working as pest control technicians and owning our own pest control companies, so we know a thing or two about getting rid of pests.”
