Arthropods feeding on corpses of other arthropods


do you know any arthropods in France that feed on the corpses of other arthropods?

I presume you don’t mean predators that do the killing and then eat the corpse. Myrmica ants will clean out the bodies of dead beetles. Scorpionflies Panorpa apparently steal food from spider webs, though I’ve never seen it .

In effect. I’m talking more about arthropods that can rid my terrarium of possible corpses.

the concern of the ants (in any case, the small one) is that I have the impression that they easily escape from the terrarium.

In that case, I think woodlice and Glomeris would do a good job. I kept Glomeris for a while and they enjoyed a scab off my knee.
