- guess I was lucky .... lived in Florida over 25yrs --- no scorpions~ lots of other stuff, especially the B52 bomber mosquito squadron ~

Yes we do, but I rarely see them. I have probably not seen more than 5 or 6 in the 10 years since I have lived here and all but one of them were dead and tiny. This one was somewhat larger - slightly more than an inch. But a couple of days after I found this one in the kitchen sink, I found another dead one on the floor in the kitchen (may have been done in by my dog) and two in a rock pile outside.

Aw Rabbit, with all the intrepid adventures you have had and the dangers you have faced, how can be so afraid of a little scorpion, whose sting is no worse than a bee or wasp, that you would take a visit to me off your next world tour? I seriously doubt you would ever come across one while you were here. Alabama is a breathtakingly beautiful state resplendent with many great photo ops. A couple of Alabamians are on Ipernity and have started a group here to show off our great state. Please visit to see a bit of what you will be missing. (http://www.ipernity.com/group/alabama/) (I also have hundreds of Alabama photos in my photo stream.)

Not particularly. Scorpions in Alabama are not deadly. People who have been stung say it is like a bee sting or getting stabbed with a pin, although the pain my tend to last somewhat longer.

I'm one of those rare people that moquitos don't like. I've had clouds surrounding me but from the cloud on;y 3 or 4 will actually land and bite. But the deerflies . . . aggghhh!

Lucky you, don't have many in my woods, but if one finds me it bites me but the itching and welt do not last very long. Grew up in mosquito infested Illinois near Lake Michigan, so guess my body just got used to their assaults

Thanks! Lucky you, I would think some places in Louisiana must have scorpions.
