    Last night I found a very cute little scorpion on the floor in the main room (forgot to take a photo :negative:  ).
    However, cute as it was I still figured I’d rather have it outside so that’s where I took it… :bye:

    Better get an ultra violet lamp to see if there are any more. Check your shoes before you put them on as well.

    Mwoah, this was only the second scorpion in seven years time…

    And no need to check my shoes, indoors I’m always barefoot and my shoes are outside on the veranda… :scratch:

    I do check them for millipedes though, they’re everywhere. :-(

    Are the millipedes poisonous ? I know there are some dangerous ones  but I did not think they were in Greece.

    When I visit friends on Ios island they always warn me about the scorpions. They find lots. Very nice of you to escort it outside reb_bravo

    The millipedes are not dangerous.

    However, they have a very bad smell, especially when you squash them, and their juices are very agressive, some sort of base or acid that leaves a burnmark on your skin.. :negative:
