Scorpion hysteria......

Posted by deanna on June 16, 2009, 11:58 am

Darwin and I have lived here for 8 1/2 years - I've been bitten once and he's been bitten twice. We take a capful of liquid Benadryl immediately and have never had further problems. If either of us were allergic to bee stings we'd go to a doctor asap, but would still take Benadryl first.
Many homeopathic remedies may work, but why take a chance? Scorpions have always lived here and will be here long after we're all gone. Take normal precautions to keep them out of your house
(hopefully, without poisoning every other living
thing around - including yourselves), but pick up
some liquid Benadryl next time you see it. I'm
a lot more frightened of the many types of snakes
here - including a diamond-backed rattler found curled up in front of Apt. #2 a few years ago. Yikes!!
