I built a house in Roanoke last year and have only found 2 inside. We see them regularly outside though. Also seen a few black widows.

Yes......just got stung on my hand today. Never saw it until it was too late. First time one has ever hit me. Can’t say that it felt good.

The door way to hell must be under my house where these things spawn from. We kill several a week in the house, they love to hide behind the soap dish in my shower and wait for you to grab the soap. @#$ %&^*!@ that hurts when they hit you on the knuckle.

They flock to my pool, seems like there are a couple in there every morning, those suckers can live a long time underwater.

Everywhere. Theyre juicy this year. I got zapped a week ago by one on the knuckle hiding in a onesie in my little girls drawer. Im glad it got me and not her.

I made my 5yr old boy kill one when were cleaning around the well. He was a scaredy cat...but I got him to kill it. Then I bragged about him to his Mom.

Reaching for a piece of split oak from the wood rack a couple of weekends ago and my son asked a question and I grabbed without looking The bastage crawled up my glove and stung me high on my wrist.

I really hate those things.

Ive found two in the last few weeks in the darn bathtub at the Farm.

First one was hiding in my body wash sponge. He came crawling out when I started putting soap on it. Next thing I know, Im dancing around like a **** fool and standing on the side of the tub trying to squish him with a shampoo bottle

Second one was just running around in the tub when I pulled back the curtain. He was easier to squish. That one would have made a Boone and Crockett trophy, it was twice the size of most I see.



I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately...

We scoop them out of the pool almost daily and have killed 3-4 in the house this year. I'm just east of Troup in Cherokee County. The first year in the house I would kill a half dozen a night walking around outside on the driveway, sidewalks and pool area. We spray with Demon, Bifin and I spread granular insect poison in the flower beds around the house.

Found probably 2 dozen or so, on the floor, walls, etc..,, in the last 3 weeks. Not sure why either. Live just north of Longview, and I've never seen one around here, ever, prior to the middle of June. Seen lots in South Texas but not up here. They can be fun though! I've let em all go but one, and I clipped his stinger off. Thought my gf was going to destroy most the living room, when I tossed it in her lap.

I found one in the shower with me a couple years ago. Covered that one with half a bottle of Axe Shower Gel. He didn't make it but he smelled good!

Dang, never seen one to seeing several dozen in the last three weeks? I'd be staying in a hotel until I found out where they were coming from and the problem was fixed! I hate the things more than anything, couldn't deal with living with them on an ongoing basis.

Yeah, it's kinda crazy. I'm not too savvy on Scorpions, but I assume it sorta like locust, and it's just a really bad yr.

All the time at our house. New construction in a new neighborhood.
If one gets into the house, our little brown Dachshund usually finds it and lets us know.
She has a peculiar noise she makes when on point.

We also have deer, quail, skunks, a hog and coons roaming around. Inside the city limits.

Was told that if there is construction nearby, the disturbing of the ground and surrounding bring them out , think that's the reason we saw so many, I had about a quarter acre cleared and a 4060 shop pad poured that year.
