Small Scale Circle of Life Questions

Lulu picked her pants up from the floor and got stung by a scorpion πŸ¦‚ that was hiding in them.

Me (sarcastically joking): See what happens when you leave your pants πŸ‘– on the floor.

Lulu: I’m in no mood for your jokes.

It barely got her on the thumb. She’s fine. Worked her whole shift with no issues.

Day before, I killed one πŸ¦‚ in the hall. Day after, she was taking her towel from the bar and one πŸ¦‚ fell out. Didn’t sting her and she smashed it was a shampoo bottle.

Today B had one πŸ¦‚ in his t-shirt. He was stung about three times before he realized it. He claims to be immune strong he man that he is.

That’s four in less than a week. Reminiscent of our first year here. Was a scorpion πŸ¦‚ bonanza. He’d go on patrol around the house with a flashlight πŸ”¦ in dark and the little buggers would be on the exterior. Smash, smash, smash.

But then the fire πŸ”₯ ants 🐜 got busy and down went the scorpions πŸ¦‚. This year the weather has been so dry though that the ants are not moving as much hence the uptick in scorpion πŸ¦‚ sightings.

Given the options, I’d prefer the fire ants. Or should I? We’ve never had fire ants in the house 🏑. But which are worse on the ecology? Inquiring minds want to know. Any ecologists out there?

As always moreto come.
