Yuck! I hate scorpions with a passion. I keep finding them in my house. I just found a live one in my sewing room. I can deal with spiders, roaches, flies anything but scorpions. And the bummer part, I just had the house sprayed last week....I guess they are trying to beat the heat just like the rest of us. 8-)

Get a cat! I hate scorpions, my cats keep bringing me dead ones. I guess they want me to be proud of them?

spiders never bother me. But this particular scorpion was laying on the floor. Thought it was dead. Went to scoop it up and he started to move....Yuck! :shock:

This is about the 5th one we have found in the house in the last month. My DD had one in her shower. She didn't realize it unitl she was inside the shower. Needless to say she came out screaming. :lol:

I have never found them in the house until this year. They are even in the flowerbeds. They said it was all the rain we had - who knows. Have sprayed outside the house and inside. Have found two petrified in the dryer and still intact. Yuck!

I've always thought scorpions were evil looking little creatures! Just plain evil looking!
