What about the scorpions? Is the best way to repel them an essential oil spray...lavendar or cedarwood?

We have never worked to repel scorpions - they don't seek to attack, just take refuge in dark places like shoes and then might sting when cornered or hurt. I don't know about scents to encourage them to stay away, just recommend not putting clothes on the floor and shaking things out before committing.

I'm sure it's just me not being used to having them around that makes me a bit nervous about them. I will just be very'aware'. smile Thank you for all the good info you are passing on!

I've never used lavender or cedarwood (or anything because it wasn't a big problem), but I've heard they can be effective repellents.

In all my years living in Belize, I saw only a few scorpions, so you probably won't see any. The two I found in my flat must have come in under the smallest of cracks under the door, so filling cracks is a good idea.

I know I ask a lot of questions...but in doing this excursion all by myself...I just want to be prepared.
