What kind of bug is this. I have found a couple inside the house and this one I captured a picture on the outside?

    Did you try picking a live one up? If so, did the head snap back sharply? That's characteristic of the click beetles, family Elateridae.

    That looks like a lightning bug from the top. But you need to flip it over on its back to be sure. If it is a LB, it will have a prominent abdomen where its light is located.

    It's a cockroach.

      That's not even close to what a roach looks like. It's a click beetle.
