Palmetto bugs are also known as American cockroaches and are typically found throughout the South. Located in dark and damp places, they often seek shelter, food, and water, and may gravitate to your residence. When the weather isn’t ideal, you may find them in your home as well. Roof shingles, sewers, sinks and tubs, drains, basements, hollow trees, and woodpiles are also homes for these bugs.
Infestation can occur during the changes in seasons. If your home is affected, Palmetto bugs can contaminate kitchen counters and dishes. This pest has been known to cause allergic reactions, including sneezing rashes and asthma attacks. If you think that you have a Palmetto bug problem, Patriot Pest Services is the one to call.
