I was aware of one of these guys running around in my peasant room, a little surprised when I caught the 2nd one.
Mouse sticky traps, so there is no way to get them off safely, notice that the business end is sharp and stuck down…
Woke up one night and thought I felt something under my foot. Pretty certain it was not one of these guys, but I did see it and knew the colder weather would drive them inside.
cut & paste from internet: “”About 250,000 people in Mexico are stung by scorpions each year—more people than in any other country. Several dozen people die each year. Indeed, for the past 20 years, scorpion stings have been the leading reason in Mexico for deaths due to adverse reactions and poisoning caused by venomous plants and animals. There are more than 200 different species of scorpions in Mexico, of which only 8, all belonging to the genus Centruroides are a significant public health risk.””
Well, it is hard to tell, but the scorpions are common here, so like camping in the desert, I knock out my boots & shoes before putting them on.
The 3 stripe scorpion in the right side of the top row looks closest and very common in this area. Also not considered deadly, just painful! NICE to know!
Happy new year folks!
