Hello I recently moved into a new home, and got everything brand new. I ran my dishwasher for the first time and the next day I noticed little black bugs they are very tiny and move slowly can you
Please tell me what type it is I’m very paranoid when it comes to bugs, and I want to make sure the previous owners didn’t leave any bugs that you can’t get rid of

Dear Renee,
This is an immature Cockroach and it looks like it is an early instar, meaning it hatched recently.  That would be a sign there were breeding adult Cockroaches present.  Though your image lacks critical detail, we suspect this is the nymph of a Smoky Brown Cockroach which is described on BugGuide as “Early instars are black insects with characteristic white markings on the distal antenae, proximal antennae, thorax and abdomen.”
