Does Buenos Aires have a lot of cockroaches? How many/how big? Are they avoidable in your apartment/building?

I'm deciding between several cities for study abroad. Having lived in cities with a lot of cockroaches I'd rather not repeat the experience.
Is Buenos Aires more like Seattle, where you will only find cockroaches in squalor, more like NYC where they are unavoidable in any large apartment building but rare in single-family houses, or more like Miami, where many people have them even in a single-family house (and they're huge and fly)?
Also, how large are they? And, what's the bugginess factor like there in general?
Buenos Aires seems to have a temperate climate, so this is unclear to me...
