What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

I live in Northern, NJ (Bergen County) and found this near my stove in the kitchen last night. Boy is it ugly!! Please let me know what it is as I spent over 1 hour looking online to try to see something similar but had no luck at all. I don’t think it is a roach (God I hope not!!!) – maybe some sort of Beetle? We have a very clean house and a dog if that matters. This site is great for us bugaphobes!!
Thanks,

Hi David,
You have a Western Conifer Seed Bug, Leptoglossus occidentalis, not a cockroach. We get lots of questions about them since they find their way into homes to hibernate. We have additional information on our True Bug page.

THANKS SO MUCH – GREAT RESOURCE SITE – KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!
