Pest Informer, an American pest control company, is seeking seven homes from across the US to take part in an experiment to trial a new type of extermination method for uninvited guests, and they’ll pay you a whopping $2000 for it. The catch? They want to release 100 cockroaches into your home for as long as a month. Gross.

The Raleigh, North Carolina-based company has developed a new method of exterminating cockroaches and needs seven lucky victims—sorry, participants—to take part in a 30 day-long experiment. However, there’s more to it than just a quick sign-up. The Pest Informer website has a list of requirements to take part in the initiative and they are as follows:

Pest Informer will pay each household that takes part in the study $2000 for the trouble and if their new experimental method doesn’t work, then traditional methods will be used to remove the bugs at no extra cost.

The company has over 20 years of experience in the industry, so it’s fair to assume that they know what they’re doing, but letting 100 cockroaches loose in your house and living with the cast of A Bug’s Life for a month? It’s a no from me.
