First of all it’s best to NOT USE GASOLINE.
Certain tasks are sometimes best left up to the experts, especially when it comes to using explosives for pest extermination.
Noticing that there was a bit of a roach problem at home, Cesar Schmitz took matters into his own hands in an effort to destroy the nest.
The Brazilian man poured gasoline into a hole he made in his backyard and started dropping matches, blowing up most of the grassy ground.
HuffPost points out that Schmitz wasn’t even completely successful. Despite the blast, home security video footage of the incident shows a roach running away from the flying debris.
