My mortal enemy is the scorpion. When we first moved here, it seemed we were finding scorpions EVERY DAY. I was not a happy camper. Truth be told, I was ready to move.
I might seem tough, but I’m a wuss when it comes to scorpions. They hurt! That’s bad enough, but to me the bigger problem is that they are relentless in trying to find a way into your home. They never give up. They’re like mini-Terminators with neurotoxins.
They still find a way in occasionally, but our major entry points have now been closed to them thanks to steel wool. It’s also excellent for keeping mice out. If you have vermin trouble, try steel wool before resorting to poisons.
What pests do you battle in your part of the country?
