I think it's a beetle. Spray with any insecticide.

There are some eco safe organic pesticides you can use for about $5

This is the second bug you have asked about but you are really not giving us enough information to help you irradiate these bugs. Please read the answers to your first bug question as the answers will be about the same even if it is not the same bug. Please give us more information in the future and we can maybe help you as it seems you have moved into a place that may be infested with bugs of all kinds.

Bugs are really difficult to identify if more information in not given especially as to where you are finding them. Your photo really looks like a German cockroach to me and these are difficult to kill.

If you have access to taking these bugs (and any more you find) to a bug termination service you will get expert opinions even if you do not use or pay for their services.

Google bug exterminator and your zip code and see if one is near you.

Here is a link showing how to get rid of German roaches just in case this is your bug - but - as I said, most remedies will kill lots of different kinds of bugs. But - a clean house is very good way to start and move on from there.

Diatomaceous Earth (food grade only) will kill almost any kind of bug but it is not instant and will take a few days to work (but keeps on working) so you may want to use other measures to start the process of elimination.

Diatomaceous Earth can be bought at many plant stores, large stores, on line, farm stores, hardware stores (not pool supply stores). Good luck with your cleaning/clearing project.
