Hello. I saw this bug on the outside of glass French door the other morning. Now I found him or his buddy under the wheel of the grill on deck, which is located a short distance from French doors. I am watching him now he’s slowly moving back under the grill wheel. Boy I hope it’s not a roach! He’s about 2 inches long

Dear Heather,
This is not a roach.  This impressive beetle is a Brown Prionid,
Orthosoma brunneum.
