Pseudoscorpions


Lets just start with saying, I hate bugs !!
Especially spiders.
Even the smallest ones will give me goosebumps along with a sense of fear and the urge to jump up on a chair or run away.
Have you ever seen a Pseudoscorpion ?
They are part of the arachnid family, and thankfully for me not seen very often.

The first time I saw one was a few years ago and I was terrified of the little thing. They look something like a woodtick with pincers. I have seen a few more since then, the most recent one being today...in the bathroom sink of all places. Much better than the one I discovered on my bed last summer though !!

Oh yikes, I know them. My parents have a very old house more than a 100 year old, and sometimes we'd see some of them in the closets or in storage areas.

Very nasty!

Oh I would totally flip out! We had the biggest scorpion in my bathtub about a week or so ago. I couldn't believe it could actually get up and in there with the smooth sides and all - very creepy!!!

I think I just might cry if a real scorpion was found anywhere in my house. These ones are teeny tiny and they are scary enough!
