OMG I just found a few of these crawling around on dry clean rolls of toilet paper. WHAT ARE THEY? I'm freaking out here.

Okay here is a closer image. I live in southeast Alaska where we don't have ticks, and cockroaches are rare.

I think the white spot is glare from the light.

Never state that you do not have these critters. You guys just had a very warm Summer. It does not take much to cause migration of insects, let alone having people transport them to other areas, via many ways of transport.

Looks like a tick to me.

The mosquitoes are so big they ate all the ticks and most of the roaches.
