Julie,

Roaches will live in a variety of areas where they can hide in organic matter. Mulches and tree bark are two examples. Palm trees are also a possibility. However you could always treat your tree with an appropriate insecticide to destroy in roaches present.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
