Guy Blows Up His Entire Backyard Trying to Get Rid of a Few Roaches

The video serves as a reminder that when it comes to getting rid of pests, it is best to call the professionals.

Cockroaches are annoying insects that cause havoc inside your home. Anyone who has dealt with them or even heard of them can relate to the desire to be rid of them once an infestation takes up.

One Brazilian man decided to take matters into his own hands and deal with his cockroach infestation by blowing them up. According to Brazil’s FocusOn News, 48-year-old Cesar Schmitz had been asked by his wife to get rid of the pesky intruders.

He decided to blow them up but something unexpected happened. He poured some gasoline in a hole he believed to be the source of the infestation and tossed a few matches in it.

The resulting explosion was so large it leveled his whole backyard. Luckily, no one was hurt and the incident was caught by his home security camera.

"I had no idea that this could happen," Schmitz told FocusOn, reported to the New York Post. "Luckily the damage was only contained on the lawn. If I had been standing closer or the table had hit me, it could have been fatal."

All is well that ends well, but the video serves as a reminder that when it comes to home pests, it is best to reach out to the professionals.
