    I've found worse things in my underwear. LOL. JK.

    I was reading that last night before I went to sleep.
    I have been to Vegas over 100 times and I have never seen a scorpion and I don't want to.
    I know they exist there. The hotel pest control protocols do a good job of keeping them out or maybe they are more isolated to residential areas.
    I DON'T WANT TO ENCOUNTER ONE.
    Bugs and insects are not my thing!

    The suite number on his report is 3-726 which I believe is a ground floor at Palazzo (Venetian is 100’s, 200’s, 300’s). Maybe it did make its way in from outside since there are patios on those 3rd floor rooms but I never understand how these people don’t check their sheets/beds and are so certain it didn’t catch a ride in their luggage, uber, taxi, etc.

    I have seen scorpions in Vegas, but never in the tourist corridor. I've seen them hiking a number of times. I'm not sure how a scorpion gets into a hotel room, but I instantly suspected this guy's friends. :haha: If it's a ground floor unit, maybe there's a chance.

    When we lived out in the country I got stung a total of 3 times. Twice on the butt. Crawled up my pj bottoms when I was asleep. Evil mfers. They can easily hike a ride and squeeze through the tiniest crack.

    This thread is a true testement to checking for pests before your rests. :D
