Hey, it’s Rich Dale. Usually, you call a pest control company to get rid of cockroaches in your house. This time, they want to put cockroaches into your house.
The Pest Informer is looking for several households where they can release about 100 cockroaches to test new pest control techniques for a month. And for that, they’d pay $2000.
The company said all cockroach treatments are family and pet safe, but the homeowners can’t use any additional methods to get rid of the creepy creatures. If the new test treatments don’t work, by the way, the company will use other treatment options to make sure the cockroaches don’t become permanent guests.
My fear about this whole thing is that cockroaches are pretty hearty. If The Pest Informer thought they were done, all they’d have to accidentally leave in my house is two roaches! And it wouldn’t take long for them to take over!
I think I’d need a few more zeros on that $2000.
