Pest Control - Scorpions

Scorpions are sometimes kept as pets, however, this is not recommended, due to the fact that even a sting from a non-poisonous scorpion can cause an adverse reaction in children and those with a weak immune system. It is therefore best to keep a safe distance from all scorpions.

 

The preferred habitat of a scorpion is dry and dark, and they can be found in a variety of settings, such as sand dunes, deserts and pine forests. When scorpions become threatened, however, they will seek shelter in human dwellings. Scorpions are nimble enough to enter an area through a 1/8" wide opening. If you want to keep scorpions at bay, it is advisable that you seal off all cracks and crevices, such as those around doors and windows, and holes in the floor. You should also inspect all the corners of your premises to check for any scorpions that are already there.

 

Scorpions feed mainly on other insects, so if you want to keep them at bay, you can take steps to reduce the number of insects in your immediate environment by for example removing all debris around your premises. You should also make sure all possible hiding places are not accessible to scorpions. Because scorpions are mainly nocturnal, they may easily go unnoticed during the day.

 

Because insecticides are only effective when sprayed directly onto a scorpion, preventing a scorpion infestation is better than a cure. To prevent an infestation, your yard needs to be well maintained and kept clear of debris that acts as a hiding place and breeding ground for scorpions. You should also keep trees trimmed, since scorpions have been known to use tree limbs as a way to enter buildings. Check all wood that you bring into your premises for scorpions, wearing gloves while you do so.

 

If you have followed all of the above mentioned advice, and you still have an infestation problem, you should contact a professional pest control expert for help.

Scorpions can be found throughout the drier western parts of the United States, and they have even spread as far east as Texas. These insects are greatly feared, mainly due to the fact that some of them have a poisonous sting that may be deadly. There are over 1000 species of scorpion around the world, however, only around 25 of these are actually dangerous.
