New Friend

Or more likely, old nemesis. Yesterday morning I discovered that we had “captured” our second Arizona Bark scorpion in less than three weeks.

They are definitely coming in from the garage. We will be keeping the sticky pads in place for the duration. My biggest concern is that they have infested the boxes that we have saved in the garage, saved for moving. I think I will spend a morning this week tearing down some boxes and filling the recycling bin for Friday pickup. It may be wiser to remove all the boxes and just buy new boxes, or acquire them somehow, when we do move.

    You don’t want to take some with you when you eventually move? At least the sticky pads stop them at the door. Be careful tearing down boxes.

    Be careful around that garage – scary things!
