A Raleigh, North Carolina pest control company is offering $2,000 to release 100 roaches inside your home to test a "specific pest control technique."

The Pest Informer is looking for 5 to 7 homeowners to participate in the study to help the company "gauge how effective" their new treatment is, WDRB reported.

The news went viral on social media last week.

ThePestInformer.com received hundreds of applications from households across the United States. The company will choose seven homes for the 30-day cockroach elimination trial, WRAL-TV reported.

People who are allergic to roaches are advised not to apply.

Applicants must be U.S. residents; 21 or older and own their own home, or have written permission from the owner. Applicants must also give permission to film the process, WDRB reported.

Boric acid is still the fastest and cheapest way to eliminate roaches in your home. You can get a bottle (5 year supply) at the Dollar Store or Walmart for less than $2.
