If they are the big huge ones and you live in a really wooded area, then don't worry about it. As others have said, that is normal. We live in a very wooded neighborhood. You can go outside on a hot night and see a few run down the road. Some are so big you can put a harness on them and take them for a walk. Again, NORMAL. Don't listen to the folks that are freaking the heck out in this thread. You will not see thousands of them unless you leave your back door up and invite them in, and even then, only a few will come to your party.

If they are the small ones and they are living in your kitchen, call an exterminator.

Welcome to NC, home of giant bugs, copperhead snakes, horrible pizza, and seriously lacking in a Wegmans.

This is the only time to call an exterminator because a clock is only ticking now who knows when you will hear the alarm sound.

Well I just read the first page but I'll throw in my 2 cents:

I have lived in 5 states in the past 15 years...never saw 1 cockroach or waterbug until I got to the Carolinas. In every city I've lived in, too - Seven Lakes, Southern Pines, Aberdeen, Fayetteville and Durham. Conway and Aiken in SC. So many roaches. It's gross. At the store I worked at in Aberdeen they were ALL OVER the dumpster pad. It was horrifying going out there at night. But also even at my grandma's big cushy house in an affluent gated gold course community - all over her (finished and furnished) basement. Crazy.
