Critters

Lately, I have had more critters in my house than usual. I think it is because my landlord is not fumigating as often. A while ago, I woke up in the middle of the night because Jade was making quite the racket and would not settle down. When I turned on the lights, I saw a large scorpion a few inches from her nose. I thought it may be dead but when I got closer, I realized this was not so as it's tail went up in warning.

A few weeks later, I found this on the wall in my kitchen. Not sure what was going on with it's legs.....maybe spiders practice yoga also.



So my question is this. How on earth are critters of this size getting in my apartment when there are screens on all the windows?????

It was about the size of a tea cup saucer - maybe a bit bigger. There are much larger ones around though.

I always wonder about that too, even here in Scottsdale I get critters and our house is sealed up like a zip lock. Go to a pool store and get this stuff called DE. It is used to filter water in pool systems, but it also kills stuff. Sprinkle it around the doors and window ledges (outside) the problem will be keeping it aways from the pooches.

It kinda looks like a gimped version of this:
