i really hope it wasnt black with a couple orangish red spots on them....if they were those are lady bug larvae which are very benificial since they eat aphids and whatnot but dont hurt your plants

Maybe Crab Spiders? Or a Pseudoscorpion? Also some immature ticks are bright orangy-red.

Not baby scorpions then but could be Pseudoscorpions. I seen one in my moms officea few years back. I had never seen one since or before that. They are pretty cool, almost look like a real scorpio.
