    ick ick ick! They totally freak me out.

    I've lived in AZ for 23 years and have only seen about 5 scorpions. I've always lived in developed areas except for when my dad built a house in an undeveloped area west of Phoenix about 8 years ago and they had a few in the first year, but not really since then. I lived there for about 2 years and saw one little one in the hallway at night. You can bet I shook out my shoes before putting them on after that, but I never thought about pants! ick.

    It's definitely the little ones you have to watch out for, the venom is more concentrated than when they grow larger.

    Sara, you'll be fine in Sun City, especially in the cooler months!

    Jen, I'm so glad that your TX scorpions aren't as venomous and that your reaction to the stings wasn't too terrible. Stings here require a trip to Urgent Care...

    In San Antonio we don't have scorpions, but my BIL & SIL have lived in various small texas towns and they are usually dealing with scorpions. YUK!
