Scorpions Attack!

Walking through my garage this afternoon taking groceries into the kitchen I spied something sticking out of one of two sticky traps either side of the entrance on the concrete. Oh look! Another one! One trap already had a nearly-dead scorpion in it. The newer catch was caught only by it’s nasty tail.

I picked up both traps and took them to the kitchen table to photograph with the Tamron 60mm. Turns out, they were both still alive, one a bit more than the other. I got the photos then took the nasty little bastards to my garage workbench and gave them the crunch with a flat head screwdriver. Adios!

Update: I am reminded by a person I follow that I neglected to point out that the home is indeed sprayed for basically everything roughly every 45 days. Duh. Welcome to the desert life. 😎🙏🏻🌵🔥🌞

    • Damn, good point! I need to update the article, thanks for pointing this out. Duh. The place is sprayed inside and out every 45 days or so. I see ZERO bugs inside… Yeah!
