Hi All!

I went to the "Worm Bin Animal Hunt Site" and the one I'm trying to find out that's in my bin isn't shown.

It is tannish/brown and moves to the point I can't count pairs of legs but looks like 3 pair, it is just over 1/16" having a more rectangular body. It has a pair of very long long antennae almost its body length that are more crablike leg looking.

It also can move back and forth as like a crab.

TY in advance. And please don't say I have Crabs! LOL

You nailed it right on the money.
At the sight you mentioned the author says he hasn't seen very many.
I literally have dozens and dozens.

Thank goodness they're beneficial.

Thanks again
