Is this a roach?

Asked November 8, 2019, 2:46 PM EST

He was crawling around the light over my stove today. I know it's not the best picture but I was afraid to get close. I sprayed him with bleach and he fell to the ground and I squished him. He didn't seem to be afraid of me at all, and was about 1 inch long. Didn't have wings that I could see.

I'm afraid this is a cockroach. Here's a link to a recently updated factsheet to eliminate cockroaches. https://entomology.ca.uky.edu/files/ef614.pdf
