Scorpion - Are all scorpions poisenous?

My daughter lives in George in the Cape Province in S.Africa. We were going on holiday and she told us we had to keep our shoes on as there was a lot of scorpions coming down to the houses from the mountains because of all the rain they had had. We had been there a few days (i had my shoes on) and were just standing at the door chatting. I saw what I thought was a frog and nudged it with my shoe to move it into the opposite direction. Next thing my daughter started screaming her head off. (I nearly died). It was a scorpion and not a frog I was nudging. No wonder she screamed her head off. Are there scorpions where you live?

When we first got to Richards Bay in 1983, here were quite a few, but they started spraying with poison for the mosquito's and killed the scorpions as well.
