Hi. I found a Pseudoscorpion on my wall today. I was freaking out because it looks like a mutant tick. But my questions are..Is it normal to have one in my house during the winter? I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.


Dear Nicole,
We would be hard pressed to state what is the preferred habitat of Pseudoscorpions, because most of our reports are of indoor sightings.  We can only deduce that Pseudoscorpions have adapted to cohabitation with humans in dwellings.

    June 21, 2018 I found a pseudo scorpion on my bathroom counter top in Rockford, Michigan. Took a picture with my camera.

    Just found one on my kitchen counter. Thought at first it was a tiny tick. Took a closer look. Tiny pincers.
