    I am almost certain these are cockroach nymphs but just uncertain enough to need expert help. Are the images clear enough?

    Cockroach nymphs. Very long, multi-segmented, antennae, cerci at rear, spiny legs, large eyes, mouth parts are not beak-like and segmented. Here are some adults just hanging around.
