So am I the last to kow that we actually have Scorpions in Kansas?? I was fishing at Lonestar lake in Lawrence Kansas when I felt something like a bite on my leg. I brushed it off and went to look and see what it had been because it hurt pretty bad. On the ground was scorpion. I did not realize that we had them here in Kansas. I was with some friends and one of them saw it and was thinking enough to grab a container that we had there and scoop it up before it made the getaway. The area of the sting looked about like a bug bite and went away fairly fast. However I didn't feel well Sunday or Monday. Just coincidence I am sure but it kind of bothered me. I will try to post a pic of him on here later today if he is still alive.
