Swimmig Pool : In the last few days I’ve found two dead scorpions in the pool
bren: New to the group and to owning a pool, thanks for the add!! Learning as I go, total newb here. In the last few days I’ve found two dead scorpions in the water. What the heck? Is that normal to find them in the pool? Can’t blame ‘em for wanting to take a dip I guess 🤷🏻♂️
frank: It’s normal, I see them all the time. Be careful I heard they can survive under water for quite a while. Same thing for spiders.
rusty: I just moved to Arizona and with all the bees and wasps I find in mine I would not be surprised to find a scorpion.
margaret: You’re going to love Arizona!
lan: None in my pool in New Hampshire.
bree: Get a cement truck and fill that pool in!!
bren: Trucks are on their way… problem solved!
maura: Omg. I’ve never been so happy to live in a state that’s 80% winter lol
bren: I hear ya LOL! I do love Texas tho. A few scorps won’t scare me away 🙂 Grew up having to deal with a few in the house each year… guess I just have to keep an eye out for them in the pool now too.
erin: Brennon Hall Just watch out for them in your skimmers. I can deal with them in the pool. It’s grabbing the skimmer handles that I worry about.
bren: good call, thanks for the heads up!
erin: They’re usually trying to get away. The o es we have here only feel like a bee/wasp sting.
bren: Same here. They don’t hurt too bad. It’s been years since I’ve been stung by a scorpion, but a wasp did get me yesterday lol!
