A pest control company is asking for volunteers to offer up their homes to 100 live cockroaches ... for research, of course. But don't worry, you'll be compensated with $2,000 ... and nightmares for the rest of your life. The Pest Informer is conducting a study to find new ways to get rid of roaches. They will track the insects and use newly-developed products to get rid of them. The company is hoping to find five to seven families willing to give the roaches and the researchers access to their homes for 30 days. They say the treatments are safe for the family and for pets. And if the roaches are still around after 30 days of the experimental treatments, the company will use traditional methods to get rid of them. If you're interested in participating (and who isn't?), you can visit ThePestInformer.com and fill out an application.
