You may call them Palmetto bugs or water bugs, but the American Cockroach is the largest type of roach you will see here in the Midlands of SC. They are reddish brown and grow up to about 2′ in length. These bugs will pretty much eat anything, sweets and starches are their favorites.
The German Cockroach is the most common type you will find in your home, and they are difficult to eliminate. They are smaller, and lighter brown in color than the America Cockroach. These roaches breed all year round and must be controlled at every level of the cycle.
