American cockroaches, aka Palmetto bugs, are very common here in Florida. They are usually found outdoors in warm, damp areas such as gardens and mulch piles. They are also abundant in sewers and drains and pipes are a common way they enter homes. They also crawl under doors and can enter through the garage. Inside homes they scavenge through cabinets and drawers in kitchens for food and can make a home for themselves there. Cockroaches are quick and dirty pests. They have been known to spread diseases, allergies and can contribute to asthma. Treatment for roaches is very important because of their egg cycles which continuously spawn more and more roaches.
