I just got into the freezer and on top of bag i spotted a bug. I have no idea what it is, but thought it might be a tick. I has the body and size of a tick but the front "legs" are extreamly long. They look exactly like a scorpions set of pinchers. I have been looking online at pictures of ticks and none of them have claws like this. Does anyone have an idea as to what it might be? I would take a picture but this thing is way to small for the web cam, and plus i dont know if it would upload based on my last attempt to upload. Thanks for the help.

Thats pretty wild! I do think that is what i found. How in the devel did it get here? They cant be native to harsh ol' Northern NY can they? If they are, where are they found? Thanks!

Several species of pseudoscorpions can be found in upstate NY. You can find them occasionally in your home, or more frequently under tree bark, and in the soil or leaf litter. They are harmless mini-predators.
