Scorpions?

8 posts in this topic

I just encountered something and it's really weird to me. I live in Decatur, GA and this is not known to be a native place for scorpions. I go downstairs and see something on the wall. I'm just thinking it's some weird bug until I get a good look at it.

Surprisingly enough, it was a real live scorpion just crawling around on my walls. First thing I did was hit it with a broom, and spray it with Raid. It fell, and kind of rolled up, so I went to get something to clean it up. I get back and the ******* is still alive!

Anyone ever encountered a random scorpion? There shouldn't be any scorpions just roaming around here. Never seen that in my life.

Yeah they are around the Atlanta area. I've killed a few, years ago so they've been here a while, They are tough too, they don't die easy.

Scorpions, Coyotes, sounds like somewhere out west, not Atlanta doesn't it?

A broom and Raid? Turn your mancard in. Smash the dang thing.

Sorry, but my legs cannot magically stretch 10 feet upwards.

You said you hit it with a broom, knocked it down then sprayed it with Raid. Was this about the time you jumped up on the chair screaming or was that before?

You can find scorpions easilly.

Under rocks, fallen tree limbs, etc.

As kids we would hunt for them and build an arena.

Scorions are natural fighters and hate each other.

Typically One wins and dies later if it got hit.

Sometimes you find a badazz that survives a dozen fights.

Their sting is similar to that of a wasp.
