Odd looking bug with odd pinchers
April 24, 2010
I found this bug earlier this evening in our bedroom (kinda scary) but I have never seen anything like this before. The body size is about 3mm. Each extended arm has 2 pinchers on it. When it’s in defense, it backs up really fast and tucks pinchers in. Can you help me out? Thank you!!
Your diminutive visitor is a harmless Pseudoscorpion. They are often found in homes around the world where they will help rid the domicile from unwanted insects.
