Classification of service: covered under General Pest Control
These insects have a flat dark brown/black body with distinct “pinchers” at the back of their body.
They can be up to an inch long and primary live outdoors but become occasion invaders inside due to high populations and weather conditions. Sealing up cracks/seals does help prevent them from coming in.
These insects also like dark places (under rocks, mulch) and they feed primarily at night on arthropods and decaying organic matter.
