Hubby wanted to help his wife with the cockroach problem.

He decided to try using a type of insecticide to deal with the problem. However, all it did was cause the cockroaches to scurry about.

He finally succeeded in igniting the gas, and as he did the whole backyard blew up.

The Canine Audience


During this entire process of getting rid of the cockroaches, there were two dogs laying on the grass close by watching the whole affair. Although they moved quickly when the yard exploded they didn’t seem to be hurt.

As he stands looking at the aftermath, not sure whether he is in shock or looking for bodies of dead cockroaches. It’s not too sure when he managed to kill the cockroaches but one this is for sure and that is that he has a lot of new landscaping to do.

This lady is not the only person to have problems with cockroaches. Nor is Brazil the only place where they are found.

There are over 4000 species of this insect worldwide and they have the ability to be able to run equal to about 90 mph.

The Havoc They Can Cause

It is understandable why the Brazilian woman didn’t like the cockroaches but there is a Florida woman who now doesn’t like them either.

The doctors can see that there are parts of a dead cockroach in the woman’s ear. They remove what they see and give her antibiotics and ear drops.

Next Several Days

The woman’s ear still doesn’t feel right.

She returns to the ER and they refer her to a ears, nose and throat specialist. He manages to remove several more parts of the dead cockroach consisting of the body, head and a long antennae. Previous removals had only extracted a few parts of the cockroach.

Not Impressed
