Identifying Bugs

Do you know what kind of bugs these are? They are in the bedroom, kitchen, and even in the bathroom.
Thanks.

It is very difficult to identify bugs from a photo because these are apparently dead and bugs do not always look the same as when alive. Although they do look similar to roaches (roaches like dampness/water) I would not say for sure.
You can put some bugs in a small jar or ziplock bag and take them to a good hardware store (Ace, True Value) and ask someone in their pesticide department or you can take them to a local pest control company.
You can use something like Diatomaceous Earth (DE - food grade only) to kill most bugs like this but you really need to try and find out how they are getting in your house or you will continue to be plagued with them. DE can be bought on-line or at most stores like Walmart
Some people use Borax but I prefer Diatomaceous Earth (food grade) as it is always safe to use just try not to breath in the dust as it is a fine particle. It can be spread under sinks in kitchen and bathrooms, under beds, sofas, in corner, and carpet. You can leave it or vacuum in 2 or 3 days.

They look like beetles to me. They like moisture, so get rid of any leaks.
