    I pull them out all the time. Just a beetle to me. Not sure what kind. The swimming kind.

    Does it have "pinchers" in the front? If so, it's an earwig beetle. My chickens love them!

    We have some of those too. They are seasonal, don't hang around long, I don't know what they turn in to.

    Thanks, I have thm most of the summer. Just a nuisance. They congregate and hide at the string for my thermometer. I have had them since I first opened 11 or 12 years ago.
