No. I was in Georgia all last week working my bees. I put my veil on to work a yard early one morning and before too long I see something long and crawling in the upper right side of my veil. I thought it had the shape of a scorpion so I got back away from the bees and pulled my veil off to take a better look. There is was, a smaller one but I was like huh. How the heck did that thing crawl into my veil? Its not like I leave my jacket on the ground or even outside at night time. It always goes in the back seat of my truck when I am done with it.Do scorpions live in NY?
