Oh god tell me this isn't a roach?!?!

I'm afraid it might be and came from a TV box from best buy since I found it right where we had the box. It was so tiny I had to use a magnifying app just for these shots so hopefully they help. I know they like corrugated boxes!

Looks like a Junebug. Right now they seem to be all over. Pretty much harmless. Showing up kind of late this year. I have them clinging on my screens and a few show up at work in boxes.

I was also thinking Junebug but I don't see them around here this time of year.

that looks like it! Thanks.
Honestly it was the rear legs freaking me out more than anything. they had that segmented raoch look. But the body was much more tank like and the rear shell seemed much more solid but it was kind of dried out.
I was hoping bugman would stop by, he helped me on a few occasions with different places successfully.

friggin love you guys!

I think that itís a small beetle. Hard shell-beetle. Soft shell-probably a roach. When itís that small sometimes itís hard to tell if soft or hard shelled. It could be a stored-product pest of some sort. If you see more in the same area then check stored materials such as flour, cereal, seeds, nuts, pet food, feathers, taxidermy, old woolens, etc.

Kind of looks like an immature June bug.
