The nymphs/adult females, don't seem to climb, but the male I collected did and very fast (accidently squished him while putting the lid on). Zephyr says they are most likely a Myrmecoblatta sp. Maybe he will be able to find out for sure as soon as I can find a few more to send him. I collected them on the underside of two different rotting logs thanks to my 6 year old who spotted the one pictured, and a nymph about half the size of this one a few days later. Hopefully the ootheca will produce a few more.

I assume so, I can't really find anything about these, but considering the small size and the name I belive these are associated with ants in one way or another.

So ants also endure household cockroach infestations. Yet another parallel between humans and ants. Of course, ants could argue that we don't have monsters that infiltrate hospitals posing as infants who devour the other infants without our notice. Once ant scientists study human colonies further and discover that we do, in fact, have creatures so similar to their own larva eating beetle grubs within our own seemingly alien yet surprisingly similar society, they will have yet another opportunity to myrmecopomorphize us.
