The pest control company located in Raleigh North Carolina is called The Pest Informer. They are currently hiring 5-7 household owners to allow them to release 100 American cockroaches into their homes, and give permission to film, and test out a specific cockroach treatment.

"In this study, we’re willing to pay homeowners $2,000 for us to release American Cockroaches into your home, and test out a specific pest control technique, to be able to gauge how effective this treatment is."

On their website, they listed 7 strict rules for the study.

  • You must be the homeowner
  • Must be 21 or older
  • Must be located in the U.S.
  • All cockroach treatments will be family and pet safe
  • You are not allowed to try any additional cockroach treatments during the study
  • If the study does not work, traditional cockroach treatment will be used to exterminate the roaches.
  • The duration of the study will be 30 days.

If gaint cockroaches running through your house sounds like a good time to you, you can fill out an application here (The Pest Informer) and possibly earn yourself $2,000.
