What does "A small fiend with a pair of hot tweezers plucked behind Scarlett’s eyeballs." mean?

The complete paragraph follows:
“All right, go on. Any stock left?”
“No’m. Nuthin’ ‘cept one ole sow an’ her litter. Ah driv dem inter de swamp de day de Yankees come, but de Lawd knows how we gwine git dem. She mean, dat sow.”
“We’ll get them all right. You and Prissy can start right now hunting for her.”
Pork was amazed and indignant.
“Miss Scarlett, dat a fe’el han’s bizness. Ah’s allus been a house nigger.”
A small fiend with a pair of hot tweezers plucked behind Scarlett’s eyeballs.
“You two will catch the sow–or get out of here, like the field hands did.”
