Oops: Man completely blows up garden after he tries to get rid of cockroaches

Blowing up the garden was definitely not his intention

What do you do when you come across a cockroach? Keep calm, scream, move… or just set your garden on fire. The latter is what a man from Brazil did. Cesar Smitz and his wife had been plagued by cockroaches in their gardens for years, and Cesar decided it was enough. He thought fire was a good way to get rid of them, but that did not go well.

People are capable of doing funny things to get rid of pests.

Cockroach plague

Pour some gasoline into the holes in the lawn and light it. This was the solution Cesar had in mind to eliminate the cockroaches in his garden. “My wife is scared of the cockroaches and begged me to destroy their nests in the ground once and for all,” Cesar tells FocusOn News. He did not think his lawn would be destroyed in the process.

Gasoline and matches

He initially used other pesticides, but the spray he used didn’t work. He then decided to take more drastic measures. He threw a lit match, together with a big dash of gasoline, into the cave. He hoped to set fire to the ground underneath. For a moment it seemed like nothing was happening, but seconds after he threw a third match in the hole, the entire lawn blew up.

Methane gas

But how could the whole garden go up in flames? Apparently, the spray Cesar previously used contained methane gas and that had accumulated underground. The gasoline he added only made it worse. The result? He blew up his garden.


Attentive viewers may have noticed that not only was Cesar in the garden, his two four-legged friends were also walking around in the garden. Fortunately, both Cesar and his dogs were just frightened. And Cesar? He learned his lesson. “I wish I had thought of this before. I had no idea that this could happen. “
