What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

What bug is this?
I live in the southern San Joaquin Valley in California, and I found these bugs under metal barrels and logs. They are about a half inch long. I’ve seen them crawl and "hop". After looking at your website, it seems to be a cockroach, but I haven’t been able to identify it for sure. Thanks for your help!

hi Kelvin,
These are Desert Cockroaches in the genus Arenivaga according to images on BugGuide.
