I set up a new yard a month ago with 16 colonies on pallets at the edge of  the woods.  I have never seen these giant roaches up here.   They are about 3/4" to 1 1/2 long.  I'm finding them in numbers inside my vent boxes when I remove the covers.  I know they are doing no harm but they gross me out

I'm guessing you just shipped in woodenware or packages from South Georgia?   I don't think those roaches will survive a Michigan winter.

these are not palmetto bugs of the south. These colonies have never been in the south.  Although I have never seen these things until now, google says they are common on up into canada.

I've not seen a lot of them, but we would get them in wood shipments when working at a shop when I was younger.

You aren't raising them, just harboring them.... Smiley  Maybe instead you need to provide them with a little hotel to stay in  grin

What are we talking about just old pine roaches??

If so they are everywhere here they are in most peoples homes around here. Darn sure are in my home but I have never really tried to control them.
