Unwanted Company

Directly after hanging up the phone with my sister and other family before her, I noticed this little piece of crap! I took this crappy iPhone photo of it, and this house was sprayed for these and other critters about 14 days ago. I called the company I use and left a message to call me Monday. I suppose scorpions here find humans to be unwanted company too!

  1. No scorpions in Scotland but I saw a nature programme where a chap was wandering around in the desert with an ultraviolet lamp at night. The scorpions (for some reason) glow when you shine UV light on them. What I am not sure about is whether all scorpions glow in UV light. Anyway, the idea would be to go out at night with a UV lamp and a very big stick.

    • Your lucky there are none there! I do use a Black light as we call them to shine for scorpions, they do glow! I didn’t find any outside last night.

    • Hi Sandra, the company I use will come back and do the application again at no cost… They are not a critter anyone should take lightly. A hospital visit and injections may happen….

    • Hi, you betcha! Message left. This company is very good at what they do actually and always a good customer experience. These critters are to be taken seriously…

    • Hi guys, it was inside on the wood near the door. I happened to see a dark spot down there and am thankful for great peripheral vision! Itโ€™s history. Sent a pic of it to my sis in Michigan. She didnโ€™t seem good with me giving it the crunch but she doesnโ€™t live here!

        • Quite right, my exโ€™ son was stung when drying off after a shower. A bit later we drove him to a satellite ER location where they eventually gave him a tetanus shot. Apparently this stops the venom. He had difficulty speaking as though he were drunk and he didnโ€™t drink! These days Iโ€™m all over them, stomp them out. That was a rental home, I own my home.
