Don’t Try This at Home: New York Man Burned Trying to Kill Bed Bugs
Bedbugs can be one of the trickiest types of pests to terminate and calling in a professional exterminator to do the job is key.
A man in Eastport, NY learned this the hard way when trying to kill bed bugs inside of a rental car.
According to ABC News, Scott Kemery soaked the interior of the car with alcohol after someone told him this would kill the bedbugs.
After pouring the alcohol he sat inside the car and lit a cigarette, which started the blaze.
Kemery fled, abandoning the flame-engulfed car, the heat from which also damaged several other cars parked nearby.
It’s been reported Kemery suffered burns from the event.
