Scorpions give me the creeps. Luckily, I donโ€™t live in an area where we have those evil looking critters. If I did, Iโ€™d want a Photon Scorpion Finder Freedom Micro keychain light. How can an LED flashlight find a scorpion? A unique feature of nearly all scorpions is that their bodies will fluoresce brightly under any UV light. The Scorpion Finder keychain light shines a beam of UV light that can be used to check sleeping bags and shoes for these glowing stinging crawlies. This item would make a great gift for soldiers in Iraq or Afghanistan.

  2. I bought one of these:
    at a feed store of all places for $10. It has nine UV LEDs and runs on 3 AAAs. I bought it to hunt for tomato hornworms in my garden (supposedly they fluoresce too, but I haven’t had any yet…) It throws way more light than a Photon, but it won’t fit on a keychain. It works really well – I go out at night and find pieces of gravel that glow yellow an purple all the time. It also charges up anything glow-in-the-dark in about 10 seconds.

  3. Thanks for thinking of me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You haven’t “lived” until you’ve had a scorpion crawl into bed with with you… (true story) ๐Ÿ˜›
