    I'm thinking the Orkin man should be summoned.


    I think if there were creepy crawlys around my quarters, I might try getting some coffee cans or the like, and putting them over the opening of my boots. Might not be fool proof, but may cut down substantially on incidents involving yuckies like them.

    LMAO ..... when in the desert I told my two friends to shake out their boots or shoes in the mornings, to make sure there weren't any scorpions in them. I don't think they really took me seriously at all, and thought I was pulling one on them. One morning though, one of them shook out a sizable scorpion ..... and he was fanatical about checking everything after that....

    In Southern Missouri they have them, and people don't realize it since it's not desert, etc.

    Varob. We were supposed to have a vector control guy coming to the camp but because we are so far out and the increase in activity it is considered unsafe for him to travel and be here.

    Something like a Peet boot dryer works better. And airs the boot out.

    Coffee cans would hold moisture in and stink them up.

    I've been told mothballs scattered around deters spiders and other critters from 'tresspassing' but I'm thinking those camel spiders might just fancy them like deer do salt licks.

    I for one take little comfort in the phrase "probably will not kill a healthy adult".
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    I almost shot a tarantula in Texas when it reared up and hissed at me! I had no idea they could do that...

    Camel spiders are a good argument for 45acp.
