My husband, Bill, is my true hero! He’s the one man in my life that I know I can count on at any time, in any situation. He’s never failed to step up to the plate and help me, support me, and, when necessary, he will go to any length to protect me.

After finding out our new home was infested with scorpions, if you read my blog, or know me at all, you know without a doubt that I have been traumatized by my fear. We have a pest control company, that we’ve used for years, come every month. Each time they come, I tell them I need them to spray heavier because we still had scorpions. Every month, they would tell me they sprayed very heavy, but the problem was just getting worse.

The very last straw for me was finding out we had baby scorpions hatching in our home and one even got on me! I had a complete melt down! Not just for myself, but also because of my fear that they would get on our daughter, Shantel, and she can’t even see to know where they are. I just can’t even imagine how awful that would be. I know I absolutely couldn’t deal with that at all. So after our dear friend, Bob, told Bill what he uses at his home in Scottsdale, and said that it got rid of all their scorpions, of course, I was the first one at the store the next morning getting everything we needed to get rid of our scorpions.  Then, Bill spent the entire day this past Saturday, spraying everything inside and outside of our home according to the instructions he was given, and laid down granules all along the outside of our home as per the instructions as well.

Good news!!! Sunday morning when we got up at 5:00 a.m. to start getting ready for church, there was a large scorpion inside our house, right by our back patio door, but IT WAS DYING!!!  This is the first time we have seen one that was actually dying. Even when we find them in the trap, they are still alive and I would have to kill them with the spray and a hammer…but, this big sucker was almost dead! I was thrilled, and actually have confidence that the spray Bill put down must be working. And we haven’t seen another scorpion as of this writing and I have been looking because if they are around,  I want to know where they are so we can continue to work towards getting rid of them.

I am so thankful to our dear friend, Bob, for letting us know what we really needed to be using, and, to my HERO,  Bill, for taking charge and getting our house all sprayed. I hope in time, I will begin to relax and be able to sleep with the light out again… and I hope I never see another scorpion for the rest of my life.

Stay tuned!

    Thank You sweetheart we owe the biggest ataboy to our good friend Bob, only because his house was a breeding ground for these scopians, and got rid of them with the chemicals that I laid down Saturday.

    Scorpians that are twitching instead of walkiing is a good thing!!!!!!
