    If I remember my biology correctly, most scorpions are not that poisonous.
    When I was 17 I was working with my dad, who was a bricklayer, in Atlanta. We got our brick from Texas. One time I found a scorpion in with the brick. All I had was an empty coke bottle so I put it in that. I had nothing to cap the bottle with so I layed a piece of cardboard over the top. After a day of work we got back in our pickup truck to head home and I checked and sure enough the scorpion was still in the bottle covered by the cardboard. It must have taken half an hour to get home. When we got home, voila, no scorpion in the bottle which by now was laying on it's side with the cardboard no longer near the bottle which was now empty. I said "Oh, well." and went inside until we left for work the next day. Never saw the scorpion again with no idea what became of him.

    Do they kill mice?
    Oh, just remembered. Our cats killed mice, baby rabbits, small snakes and the occasional bird.
    We had one Tom Cat that use to fight with raccoons. Our great big German shepherd would chase them up a tree and then that idiot cat would go up the tree in hot pursuit. One time our cat came back from a night of carousing with the raccons missing one fang and a huge gash in his side. We had to take him to the Vet to get him fixed up. No, not fixed, he'd have found a way to kill us if we had messed with that. Our dog was also fearless. He was a notorius cat killer. One time we moved into a new neighborhood and went around to all the neighbors warning them to let us introduce their cats to our dog. Once introduced he'd leave those cats alone. Even our cat was more a partner in crime with the dog than an enemy. You saw how they paired up to harass the raccoons. They would sleep together and lick each other's fur. As long as our dog was around our cat was safe. So, back to the story. This one neighbor had a huge feral cat. That thing was massive. The owners declared that their cat needed no help and would probably wind up chasing the dog around the neighborhood. About two days later their cat was dead. I don't care how big the cat you'd better not depend on it taking on a 150 lb. German shepherd.

    See, cats and dogs can work together.

    I don't like Earwigs

    IDK if I'm afraid of them, but the thought of them crawling in our ears as we sleep and eating our brains is kinda messed up.

    Things I've only heard of, never actually seen: huge flying cockroaches in Florida and murder hornets.

    I don't like them for other reasons plus they infested the apples as they rotted on the ground under our apple tree.

    In general, I hate bugs.

    We’ve always had cats but yes while they kill them they also bring them back to the doorstep or somewhere in the yard so we can all praise him. I don’t want to see a rat or mouse, dead or alive.

    When I was a kid, I had a flying ant land in my ear. It crawled in deep and got stuck. Had to go to the hospital to get it out. They had to use a long pair of tweezers and a hose to wash it out.

    Yeah, the dudes definitely are not invited to my picnics. The lady has a much nicer shade of yellow and I'd probably make an exception for her.

    There are animals I don't like but I really don't have irrational fear of any animal.

    Heights bother me.

    Scared of a sociopath with no moral compass, an attorney general remaking the Justice Department into his personal law firm, and a political party enabling anything he does being president. Oh wait....

    I can relate. My sister in law lived in Phoenix and built a new home in the Gilbert Area (very nice area) and we spent the weekend there with my daughter playing in a national soccer tournament. The night before we were going to leave she informs us that their development was built on what was called Scorpion Hill. Not sure how much I slept that last night.
