Hi Lori,
Pseudoscorpions are harmless predators that are found worldwide.  Because of their small size, they are rarely noticed except whey they are discovered inside homes.

    Pseudoscorpions make great housemates! Have only seen a dozen in my home of 22 years, but all of them have been well behaved and they obviously are helpful in ridding me of other “creatures” I wouldn’t want to get over populated. Thank you for educating us!

    I found this bug on my school room.
    I asked my teacher about this bug but they did not reply me anything.
    Then I thought to research about it. And too I got it
