Lady-bug-like guy

I've noticed a couple of these guys scooting around the walls of my bins. What are these? I hope they aren't lady bugs... aren't lady bugs "bug predators" I hope they don't hurt my worms.

That looks like a spider mite unless it's the size of a lady bug. Hard to tell the size. Let me know.

Entymology is not my strong point but I don't think it is a lady bug.
However, if it was it would be a good thing because they eat mites, and smaller pests.
They leave the larger "insects" alone.

Would lady-bugs hurt the worms? If they wouldn't it seems like a good solution to the mite problems some of us have.

if it is a lady bug, they will eat aphids, which eat your plants you grow =(
