This bug has started showing up in the kitchen and dining room. We find a few dead ones almost every morning now. The body is about a quarter inch long. Maybe very small cock roaches??? We live in NE Florida, it is winter. They are dark brown with a white, beige stripe across their back.
Signature: NE Florida
You are correct that these are young Cockroaches, more specifically, the nymphs of the Smoky Brown Cockroach, Periplaneta fuliginosa. We have posted several photos in recent months, including this one from two weeks ago, and you can find additional information on BugGuide.
