A Brazilian man tried to rid his garden of invading cockroaches — and inadvertently blew up his yard.
Cesar Schmitz, 48, attempted to obliterate the cockroaches by pouring gasoline on his lawn and striking a match, which set off a massive explosion on his property. “My wife complained that there was a lot of roaches invading our garden,” he told the outlet. “She is scared of them and begged me to destroy their nest under the ground once and for all.”
Home security footage shows him setting a match, which he throws in a hole in the lawn crawling with the pests and within moments, the yard explodes, sending debris flying and his two panicked dogs running.
