So last night my wife found and thwacked a small black scorpion in our closet, and I was wondering: I know the white/clear ones are usually the more poisonous, but are the small black ones as well? confused

I think we only have one kind on the island the black one, and I've been bitten several times over the last 20 years.
Its worse than a bee sting but not nearly as bad as a snake bite!
It kinda just ruins your day.
I got bit because of my being in remote undeveloped areas, it seems that bug spray around the populated places usually keeps them away.

malathion just sort of pisses them off so i use diazinon, but be really careful with Diazinon (IUPAC name: O,O-Diethyl O-[4-methyl-6-(propan-2-yl)pyrimidin-2-yl] phosphorothioate) its strong enough to kill people.

An fyi heads up Elbert, Diazinon was banned/phased out for residential use by the EPA back in 2004. Of course Belize isnt the US, just sayin. Hmmm come to think of it, thats an even better reason to know that.

Btw I think youre going to open water cert my friend Andy from Wasilla Ak this fall. He's looking forward to it.

An fyi heads up Elbert, Diazinon was banned by the EPA for ground and surface water contamination issues back in 2004. Of course Belize isnt the US, but just sayin.

You know I wonder if Diazinon could be applied topically to Lionfish, swinging a shoe underwater seems to lack impact
