    We knew someone who lived and worked on the island and was bitten or stung (not sure what you call it), putting on a shoe one day.

    Have not seen any there but know hey have them. We had them at our previous house by the lake here in Oklahoma. They sting you. Little brown ones about 2 to 3 inches long. About like a bee sting. They would come in all the time. Very hard to get rid of. Never walked around the house barefoot.

    There are 14 pest/extermination companies listed in the phone book so I am thinking the resorts are well covered

    My question is, has anyone ever seen a scorpion in their hotel room?
