This Guy Tried To Get Rid Of Ants In His Backyard.. Ends Up Blowing Up The Entire Yard

We all have been there, watching helplessly as ants raid our homes. They come in huge numbers and can be seen collecting crumbs from the kitchen. Soon enough, they make very cozy homes in your walls, and the only options that you are left with include either making use of ant trap or calling in the exterminator.

However, this particular guy decided not to choose any of these quick fixes and decided to take action and get rid of the problem himself proactively. However, he didn’t really factor in the repercussions of his actions.


For some reason, this guy’s way of taking care of ants included using gasoline and a matchstick. Yes, you read that right. So, what did he do? He poured gasoline into the ant nest that was located in his backyard and then threw a burning matchstick in it. He then helplessly watched his plan go up in flames with a bang!

Within two seconds of the burning match, making contact with the ground that has been soaked up with gas, the ground cracked and blew up with a loud bang in the air. It happened with the force that is equivalent to a mini-explosion. Which is why you should refrain from attempting this at home at all costs.

We strongly suggest that you call in the professionals to take care of your ants’ issues. As a bonus, your backyard will not end up getting destroyed. Check out the video below where you can see the guy attempting his ingenious hack for getting ants out of his home. However, please bear in mind that one should definitely not try this at home. And as always, be sure to share this with your friends and family members – it would also serve as a warning against such amazing hacks.
