    Here at my dads house and without going further then 100 yards from his house ive cought more then 20 scorps... all kinds of different ones too!! it was a scary and exciting experience... i first turned on the black light and saw 3 scorps surrounding me within 5 feet and had no idea they were there before even in the light...

    Well we are leaving for a few days but ive got a 40 gallon here im going to put them in and will be selling them all hopefully when I get back... Can someone post a pic of a bark scorpion please because im sure ive cought one and i hear they have nasty venom... and total count was 22... and there are scorpligs galore here too... ive got 3 scorplings look to be in there 2nd instar but not sure what they are... will post pics either today or when we get back in 5 days...

    im fairly sure that a few of the scorps I cought are Vaejovis Spinigerus... just because the big fat tail... hows venom of these guys ?? looks like they'd be bad to me...

    Doesn`t sound like a bad conclusion, V Spinigerus and H Arizonsensis are very common in your area. Lucky man.. :(

    V. Spinigerus has venom comparable to H. arizonensis.

    Synergy,

    Congrats on the find. I had planned to hit Texas in August but had to move the trip to the spring but that will be my first true scorp hunt and I can't wait to hit the field and blacklight for Diplos for an entire 3-week period!
     
  17. sounds like to me I need to visit there abit with a blacklight

    A small sample of what I collect almost every night.
     
  19. Two weekends ago, I went to the CA side of Lake Havasu and blacklighted for 2 nights. I got skunked. Not a thing. I saw a lot burrows though. And my relatives tell me scorps are all over the place. They gave me a 4 inch H. arizonensis that they had killed a few nights before. I wish they had kept it alive for me. It's was a magnificent scorp.
