Wow I checked out that site. It's funny how they talk about them as invading pests. I'd put out a scorpion welcome mat but none live in my northern climate. And the scorpion grabber with sticky envelope system makes me sad.

At the prices shown on that site just buy one. Or use a flashlight you own and try to order a replacement UV bulb. The part that costs money are the battery and bulb so you can't make one for cheaper.

The short answers is sooooo many things.

But in all seriousness I don't know if that will work. So if you try making a black light yourself you can post here and let us know. I do know that if you buy a regular flashlight with a fairly strong bulb for $10 USD and then a can of black spray paint for $8 USD you probably should have bought that well priced $14.99 flashlight and actually saved money.

I guess what I'm trying to say is good products that work and are priced fair are ok purchases.

If buying things online isn't an option then making them is the way to go. But I don't know anyone who's tried it. So good luck and let us know if it works.

Painting a light bulb black and expecting it to produce UV light is simply ridiculous. If you can't purchase a UV flashlight locally or order one on-line, it's doubtful you'll be able to obtain the parts to build one.

I use this mini LED UV light sod by PetCo as a pet urine finder. It has three LEDs and is solar powered. The light output is considerable for how small it is and it has a small keychain attachment. I was quite impressed with this light. I think it's only $3.99 on their website. I believe I paid $4.99 in store.

Yeah Robert scorpion search lights can be bought on the cheap as pet urine stain detectors. Human fluids also glow under black light. Don't take one with you next time you stay at a hotel.

It might be hard to power it? Does it run on 120 or 240 volts? You need something battery powered.

If you can't find a hand held black light you might look at the scorpion hunting tips in the "Hike and Hunt" section. There are tips for hunting in the daytime there.

Scorps are nocturnal but you can look for them hiding during the day.
