Most likely to be some kind of beetle larvae that feed on the wood of the bark chips.
Very likely NOT to cause plants any harm.
The key to orchid growing is to match the orchid to your conditions.

They look like fly larvae, the shiny black head is typical of fungus gnats but I'm not sure that that characteristic is exclusive to them.
