Cockroaches in Bermuda

Jump to last reply

Hello! I live in Western Europe, and I'm considering applying for a job in Bermuda. Seems like a lovely place with weather that suits me perfectly. However, there is one issue that worries me: According to what I've read on the web, and also from personal discussions with Bermudian residents I've e-mailed with, cockroaches seem to be a huge issue on this small island.

It's difficult for me to judge whether people are generally exaggerating about this or not. I get the feeling that the more people are afraid of them (like me), the more of them they see. Basically what I want to know is, if I have a clean apartment in what is considered to be a building with a good and modern standard, can I expect to find roaches in my apartment regularly or not?

I have been to Trinidad & Tobago and Florida and never seen a single roach. However on some places on for example Big Hawaii Island and in Australia, the place was crawling with them.
