Dr. Hawkins's savvy as a longtime desert homeowner, enhanced by decades of practice as a physician, provides the reader expert advice on the hazards and symptoms of arachnid bites and stings as well as their first aid and professional medical treatment. Goodbye, Scorpion; Farewell, Black Widow Spider is the only comprehensive and practical book on the problem of HOW TO KEEP SCORPIONS OUT OF YOUR HOME and immediately stop any that do enter-Without Pesticides!From the Author:
Ten years of living in the high desert country of Arizona provided my background experience for studying ways of handling the scorpion menace. Let's be honest: they are a menace to the comfort and safety of adults and to the lives of children, the elderly or infirm and all friendlier domestic life forms-our pets. Their sting is a serious medical emergency and, even if not fatal, a painful and frightening ordeal. Scorps are around twelve months out of the year. I have caught them in my house in the middle of winter. So we need a year-round protection plan and a twofold strategy: (1) to prevent their entry into the house, and (2) to capture them if they manage to get by our first defenses.
