We live in Tulsa, OK and today I found this small bug. His body was perhaps 1/4” long. And no, we do not have a live Xmas tree.
Thanks for your help identifying this visitor!

Dear Trixie in Tulsa,
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you have an immature Cockroach. Since it is not mature, you do not have to worry about it reproducing, however, it may have siblings or parents also living in your home. It appears from your second photo that the Cockroach is contemplating a dash into the kitchen where there is food stored, no doubt.
We have been fighting the cockroaches for months thanks to some trashy neighbors, but this one looks different than the others. Also, we haven’t seen any roaches for several weeks so we were sort of hoping we were finished with them!
