Skin/hair bug looks like a lobster?

There are two species of Demodex mites that live, breed, and die on our skin. One species lives most of it life head down in hair follicles, The other in oil glands, head down. Their wanderings are more pronounced at night. As you age you eventually develop your own personal load of these little guys.

Pictures and a "popular" version of these beasties:
