The only thing that comes to mind, although they are not beige and are quite small, are wood mites. They are tiny little white bugs that come in on natural substrates (ie - repti-bark). Completely harmless to you and your pets, if you really want to get rid of them, bake/microwave/boil any natural substrates and items prior to putting them in your tank. Wash it thoroghly to rid what is there and replace with clean stuff. It isn't highly likely that the stick bugs would've brought anything in to your collection, and if they did it would be insect mites, these do not affect reptiles or mammals, as mites are host-specific.
