Small worms with dubia roaches? Buffalo beetle life cycle?

Hi, all! I have a handful of Buffalo beetles with my dubia roaches and noticed these teeny, tiny worms today roaming around. I can't for the life of me find photos of what the actual life cycle is for these buffalo beetles bc I'm hoping these worms are just a result of the beetles getting busy. I found a thread on here (from 2019) that looked like it had similar worms in the roach colony, I just hope these aren't BAD invaders (https://www.chameleonforums.com/threads/small-black-worms-found-in-cockroach-container.170710/) . Thank you for any help ID'ing these..
