September in Phoenix means cooler evenings and mornings that might get you out onto your patio for the first time since April.

Chances are that scorpions have spent more time on your patio than you this summer. Guess what? Chances also are that those scorpions are still there. Inevitably, this leads to a confrontation where humans and scorpions are on the same patio. In this confrontation with humans and scorpions on the same patio, it will increase the chances of you or a family member getting stung.

Just a reminder... If you live in an area frequented by scorpions, don't assume a monthly exterminator visit will completely eliminate every scorpion on your property. If you're scorpion free, all it takes are a few pregnant scorpions to climb over your neighbors wall and unleash over 100 babies into your family yard.

As I always suggest on my main page at http://www.thescorpionequalizer.com:

IF YOU OR A MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY HAVE BEEN STUNG BY A SCORPION AND NEED MEDICAL ADVICE, PLEASE CALL POISON CONTROL AT 1-800-222-1222 FROM ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES.

Also, if you do go to a hospital, there is a chance your bill might be more painful than the scorpion sting. Remember this story from just a few years ago?

You should check with your insurance company BEFORE you go to the hospital or at least before your sign any hospital agreement to confirm if you're covered for Anascorp. Not knowing your liability could prove painful for years!
