The fear of insects is called entomophobia. There is actually, no specific phobia name for just the specific cockroach phobia.

Cockroaches are insects of the Order Blattodea.
Blattodephobia is a made up word using the Order name so it is the same as saying Cockroach Phobia. Check it out on the site.

Unfortunately, I live in Florida and they are everywhere...but my fear is of spiders. Can't deal with things with 8 legs!!!
