Beetles?

Asked June 19, 2018, 10:03 AM EDT

I keep finding dead beetles in my bathroom. For the past two days there was only one and they don’t necessarily look like cockroaches. I’m sort of scared they are though, I haven’t seen one in years so I am not sure. There was 3 of them this morning. Every morning they appear to be dead, I spray them in case they aren’t. But they haven’t appeared in other areas, mostly in my bathroom and in our kitchen there was maybe two yesterday.

I don't think it is a cockroach, but it is a little hard to tell from the picture. Here is more information on cockroaches in Kentucky: https://entomology.ca.uky.edu/files/efpdf3/ef614.pdf

I don't think the antennae are long enough.
