    Default The Scorpions Finally Got on the Score Board

    Those of you who are friends with me on FB know that I have been keeping tally of the number of scorpions we have killed. Until tonight that number was Jordans 60+ Scorpions 0

    My husband has a traveling job, he left tonight to be gone for the weekend. I put on my sweat pants at about 7 pm to help him pack and not have to worry about getting dirty, since we were loading up the motor home. Anyway, I had the pants on for about 3 hours....a while. I came in and sat down at my computer and felt what I thought was a sticker or burr on the inside of my sweat pants, WRONG!!!!! As soon as I scratched my knee I felt the sting.....needless to say I stripped pretty fast, LOL (sorry if TMI) I knew I needed to get the thing out of my pants and confirm what I knew it to be (since it was my first time being stung) so I gently pulled my pant leg inside out, and of course my hand just happened to be right where he was....I thought I was being cautious, but he got me on my finger too!!!!

    It doesn't feel very nice, but I am pretty sure I am not allergic to them since I haven't gone into shock yet, but DH is freaking out since he is out of town and we are in a new house with no one close by... he is calling me about every 20 min LOL.

    We had already sprayed earlier this week, but when hubby gets home we are hiring the PROFESSIONALS!

    GOSH, what is the deal?!

    last time i saw so many scorpions, i was at summer camp in the middle of the woods.

    i despise anything bug-related, so if i were in your position, i'd be at a HOTEL! cripes, hope the issue is solved very soon!

    Meat tenderizer will help with the sting. I know I am probably too late and hopefully you won't have to know this info again!

    But seriously since the winter ws SO mild and there has been lots of rain they will be worse this year! Ugh!!\

    And now the score is 60-2. Off to find you on FB!!

    EEEEK, I would be flipping out. Thank goodness you are not allergic to them. I have never seen one in my life and that is perfectly fine with me.

    Thanks Missi! Some one said raw onions help too....I didn't try either last night, but the welts are finally gone this morning, I can feel it a bit still in my knee but not bad.

    Curt and I retallied them up last night and I think it is 63-2 now, but I don't know whether to count that scorpion as 1 or 2 since it was the same bug, LOL

    Central Texas...not as bad as Arizona's scorions (not as poisonous) but fierce in number. I'd show you this pic of the two in the toilet, but they are hard to see, so here is a different one
