Sorry not sure this is the right subject area as not gardening but definitely pests!! Are cockroaches a common problem in coastal areas as we are fed up with it now!!?? 

Any advice welcome thanks.

We have them too! Have got pest control round and they have sprayed all in our drains - found a new drain today with new cockroaches! Joy!

It’s our first year here though so we it’s all new to us too!

We have been keeping all the plugs in all the sinks, that’s the only useful advice we have received so far - but hoping someone else replies with more useful info!!

Good luck!

Hi,  yes cockroaches are horrible.  I'm told the humidity brings them out.  It is difficult, with pets, to use the things sold in the supermarkets.  I happened to talk to my Dentist about them and he told me about Electrical Plug-ins.  I was dubious as similar things in the past never worked.  Anyway, I was willing to try anything!  I got x1 pack of x4, for cockroaches from Amazon and haven't seen a cockroach since!!  Might be worth a try?!
