The Q&A Archives: Mimosa Tree Question

Question: We are moving into a new house in a few weeks. It has a very large Mimosa tree in the yard. I've been told that roaches tend to go to this type of tree. Is that true? I don't want anything to do with roaches!!!!!!!! Thanks for you quick response.

Answer: I've never heard of this, so I don't think it's true. Roaches might be interested in hiding in dense landscape shrubs such as boxwoods, and they may be attracted to plants that produce seeds because the seeds are a potential food source, but as far as I know, roaches do not have any particular fondness of mimosa trees. Just to be on the safe side, be sure to keep the seed pods of your mimosa raked up!

Best wishes in your new home!
