-Palmetto bugs are large bugs that have wings and can fly in through open doorways. They are a huge problem in Florida especially after heavy rains. We have a pest control service but these particular bugs often still find a way to get in. Hopefully, if you see one he is either dead or dying. Don’t be alarmed - they don’t bite or sting. I usually grab a paper towel and pick them up and toss in the garbage can. If you see more than one or two please let me know and I’ll give the exterminator a call
