Found a spider cricket, as known as a camel or cave cricket, in my home. It is now visiting my pair on androctonus mauretanicus. Any worries that it could harm the scores beyond what a normal cricket could do?

Its possible for sure.
The bigger threat is that it will have parasites or pesticides in its system given that is a wild found insect.
It is not recommended to feed wild caught insects to your animals.

I would never feed wild caught feeders, you just never know what comes with it

They are highly cannibalistic opportunistic feeders, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they do nibble on vulnerable T’s and scorps.
