Scorpion information

Hi there
nice bit of text on scorpions and their stings! Beens ting 35 times by various scorpion species. It''s actually not as bad as many people make out. Of course the only stings we hear about in the press are serious stings. Many species are shy and reclusive creatures.

Detection is the best means of avoiding being stung. I visit scorpion infested areas on southern africa on a regular basis. We use UV light to scan for scorpions and to avoid stepping on the poor little guys.

Kind regards
Jonathan

35 times Whoa! Thank you for stressing that point i.e. that not many stings are serious and being stung should not be high on our worry list. (For readers wondering why Jonathan has been stung so many times, it is an occupational hazard - he is an expert in the scorpion field.)
