Pregnant Scorpion

I’m beginning to think that perhaps the all-natural, 100% organic pest control stuff that the pest control guy guaranteed would work just as well as the stuff we’d been using…doesn’t work just as well as the stuff we’ve been using.

Found May 28th, 2012 in Austin, TX



  1. Eeeps….OK, I’ll admit the science teacher in me is like “WOW, that is SOOOOO COOL!” But, the mom in me is like, “WOW, that is SOOOOO SCARY, get it away from the kiddos!”

  2. I think I almost passed out! You should have a warning that the picture is not for the wimpy:) And I would be all over those caustic chemicals if I saw something like that! Just saying and I consider myself pretty granola:)!

  3. ok. i clicked because i was like, it’s just a bug/scorpion/snake/critter. but i was not prepared for the GROSSNESS that awaited my eyes. i can not believe what i just saw and i wish i could forever erase it from my memory. but you did warn us. but STILL!!!

  4. Not ready to write Scorpian Mama’s Guide to Having A Ton of Babies?

  5. That is disgusting. My hubby killed one out on our porch last week and afterwards we discovered all of the little eggs on its body. Part of me was sad for the little scorpion mama but most of me was creeped out beyond measure that we almost had all of those little demon babies running around our backyard.

  6. AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’d be running away like my hair was on fire!

  7. That is about the yuckiest thing I’ve ever seen…

  8. Ummm… (from a scorpion-ignorant Oregonian) What did you do???

  9. Oh Erin that is the most disgusting thing I think I’ve ever seen. I hope I never run into that!

  10. Awesome. Hilarious. Totally disgusting.

    And it appears your theory is correct. :)

    And Emily’s comment is a crack up.

  11. That seriously makes me want to yak…and I think I am going to have nightmares…for a week! Ew. I hope the pest control guy whips up a better concoction than he’s currently toting.

  12. Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! I would move if I found something like that any where near my house!!!
