I came across your site looking for info on this bug I’m seeing. We have a mite problem in this one room, where a bird nested in the eave, and I have laid down some double sided tape to try to determine where the entry point is, so I don’t have to RAID the whole room. Anyhow, a different bug has secured itself to the tape, almost making it across the span before apparently giving up in despair. It has pincers extending out like longhorn cattle horns, equal to the length of it’s body. I don’t have a camera at the ready, I’ll try to draw one and attach it, if you could be of any help. Greatly appreciated. I live in central Minnesota.
What a great drawing of a harmless Pseudoscorpion. We have an entire page with some photos. Just click the Pseudoscorpion link in the alphabatized list of the www.whatsthatbug.com homepage.
P.S. They may be eating your mites.
Thank you for the quick response and ID. I browsed your site for names I didn’t recognize, but I never thought to look at the pseudoscorpions. That’d be great if it was eating mites, except now I killed it with the tape trap.
