Found about 10-15 of these on a wood frame of an art print I picked up at a thrifty store. At first they looked like a clump of dead bugs but when I started to wipe the clump off the art frame, the little bugs started to scatter. We’re in North Carolina and it’s February.

Thanks to this BugGuide image, we feel confident that these Cockroach nymphs are Smoky Brown Cockroach nymphs, Periplaneta fuliginosa. According to BugGuide: “Early instars are black insects with characteristic white markings on the distal antenae, proximal antennae, thorax and abdomen.”
