New Arizona Cardinals safety Tre Boston grew up in Florida and went to college in North Carolina.

Before signing with Arizona this offseason, he played in Charlotte and San Diego. Deserts are new to him, and that hit home for Boston on Monday night.

Not only was that 100-degree temperature getting to him — one of those poisonous critters that Arizona locals have gotten used to made an appearance.

#DesertProblems indeed.

Boston’s plea for advice got answered, although it’s questionable if any of the Twitter replies were useful.

An unofficial poll of how to handle scorpions revealed that moving or burning down the house were options 1A and 1B.

Here is advice more about relationships than scorpions.

Here’s pretty good advice, short of calling the exterminator.

And here’s a reminder that sometimes the scorpions just win.

Anyway, Boston appreciated all the Twitter replies.

As for what to do about that heat? We’re still looking for those answers as well.
