I’ve been up close and personal with different breeds of roaches, but i don’t know what this one is? I don’t believe it is a roach! It squishes way to easily, almost turning into a powder. Please help! I have found 4 or 5 in my house!

Hi Jenna,
You are correct that this is not a Cockroach.  It is a Click Beetle in the family Elateridae.
