The state of Georgia has 5 main types of cockroaches. These roaches can be identified on our PEST ID page. All roaches need water to survive, so it is common to find them living near sewers, floor drains, water dispensing refrigerators, and kitchen and bathroom sinks. Most roaches cannot survive when the temperatures drop below freezing, so they commonly invade homes during these times of the year. In addition to your home, wood piles, dead trees, and other piles of debris provide safe cover for hibernating cockroaches.
