    The body looks bedbug-ish. But the head does not. And though I accidentally destroyed some of the legs when I killed it, where the one remaining leg comes out of seems too far back to be a bed bug.

    I obviously don't want it to be a bedbug, but more than anything, I just want to know. I can't find anything else that fits. But the head is like tucked under a bit and thus doesn't seem like a normal bedbug head.

    Any thoughts?

    (Any help will be greatly appreciated)

    Hi Jim,

    I was looking online, and all the images I can find of roach nymphs don't really look like it. It looks much more like a bedbug than a roach nymph to me. But don't get me wrong, I would love it to be a roach nymph.

    I just thought I'd post another (perhaps better) picture, and see if you still agree, or if anyone else has any other opinions.

    THANKS...

    Yes, clearly a roach nymph.

    Could be an oriental cockroach.

    Looks like a German roach nymph to me.
