I would just grab them as they come out of the substrate. My AGB's have a network of tunnels constructed through the substrate, and I disturb it as little as possible.

Worst case scenario, the N. americanus will merely compete with the africans for food. I'd give them sufficient food and remove them as you see them.

If they happen to lay eggs, it's not that that big of a deal. Long as you grab them up before their offspring are sexually mature, there's not much you have to fear from infestation.
