What kind of roaches can be found in northern GA, USA? Other than the common pest ones of course. I'm thinking about trying to rear species I can find locally. Anyone know whats around, where to find them, and how to care for them?

Possibly Euthlastoblatta gemma. Parcoblatta spp., Ischnoptera deropeltiformis, Chorisoneura texensis, Cariblatta lutea lutea. Cryptocercus in the mountains?

Wow, E. gemma looks amazing! Any idea on how to find them? I'm gonna go poke around some rotting wood for some of the others.

No, look in leaves (pine needles, oak leaves, mixed leaves in forests or on roadsides beside forests). You will find just mostly P. virginica in moist rotting wood on the ground. But in still standing pine stumps, inside them and underneath the bark, I find P. pennsylvanica, P. lata, P. divisa, but probably could find those in still standing stumps of oak also because user Cariblatta lutea has found them in those.
