Palm trees are very popular where our vacation home is. They are rather problem free, tolerating the heat and humidity well. Pictured is one of the palm trees near our vacation home. Now palms actually come with one itsy, bitsy problem. They attract palmetto bugs aka American cockroach. I am not impressed with palmetto bugs at all even though I know they don't bite or do damage. They are huge and they will come up sewage pipes. We have had two come up through the toilet at the vacation home so I am definitely not impressed. The last thing I need before having coffee in the morning is to have a visitor in my toilet, thank-you very much!
