The crabs will not harm your tree, however, the fact that they can live there means that the area is far too wet for your fig tree. Wet soils lead to infections.
Unfortunately, your photos did not come through, so I am unable to see the state of the tree. I will suggest using a fungicide, and making sure that the soil dries out down to about 3 or 4 inches between watering.
Here are some articles that will help you to care for the fig, and treat the disease:
