Advertisement This one was outside my garage this morning at 8 a.m. I'm not sure if dead or just playing dead. A month ago, my roommate was stung while digging through pine needles under a pine tree 20 feet away from here, while installing a drip watering system. So I am guessing the one that stung him was probably the same species as this one shown here. Plus I had one on the front door of my house one night 2 weeks ago. Any information on what species? This is kind of alarming to me, though I know I live in scorpion country. What can I do to keep these away from my house and garage?
