    I don't keep them or know anyone who does, but they are fairly common under tree bark in Ontario forests especially during the winter because they hibernate. I have a plan to go out and find some soon because I want to photograph them for an upcoming project.

    The loose bark protects them from snow and frost. I find them in fallen oak and beech logs, but they probably occupy other trees.

    So i peeled back the bark in some old tree stumps and didnt come across anything. The bark was somewhat frozen, do they stay in the frozen parts? Thanks all

    Alright we had a thaw so i went and peeled bark off all kinds of dead trees and stumps... i found spiders, mites, springtails, beetles, grubs, centipedes, etc. Just about everything except pseudoscorpions! Any ideas? There are only really maple and cedar trees around here
