Dear c_seiber,
This is a harmless Pseudoscorpion.  Various species are found nearly worldwide, and they are often encountered in peoples homes where they do their best to dispatch unwanted insect and arthropod visitors.

    My husband seen this one on our room couple nights ago….
    thought it was a bed bug, but looked into the this site, & came upon it.
    is there anything i could use to get rid of?
    or should i leave them alone?…
