    I have a client who puts a coffee can in the ground with a board over it .
    Scorpions fall in at night .
    It's a trap .
    They have caught 13 in 3 weeks using 2 of these traps , no bait , just lots of scorpions .
    They are just walking along and fall in .
    There must be millions of them around here

    My question is
    I have 3 containers , one 'pion in each plastic container .
    1 with Delta Dust
    2 with ECO Exmpt D
    3 with Boric Acid

    Guess which ones dies first .

    I am gonna try Diatomaious earth , too .
    As soon as I get some .
    BTW , I still have about 6 scorpions living in fish bowls in my office .

    lets see, if you seal the lid on each jar, I'll guess that they'll all run out of air about the same time.
