How to Get Rid of Scorpions
Although scorpions are typically found outside, they have been known to
invade homes and even cause infestations. To avoid contact with them,
follow the prevention tips listed below:
Thoroughly clean the inside of the house. Carefully pick up all laundry
and debris cluttering the floors. Popular indoor hiding places for scorpions
include closets, piles of laundry, attics, bathroom or kitchen cabinets,
and crawl spaces. If they get into your home, they are usually found in
secluded dry areas such as closets and garages. Clean other rarely used
spaces. Know what scorpions like and where they hide. In general, scorpions
are drawn to dry areas and their main sources of food are usually small
insects and spiders. By keeping your home insect-free, it will make it
much less likely that scorpions will be a problem, so general pest control
Eliminate hiding places
By controlling scorpions outside the home you can also control them inside
your home. Remove debris such as loose rocks, stacks of firewood, boards,
piles of leaves, tree bark, trash and other unnecessary things around
the home. Scorpions like to keep out of the sun by hiding beneath objects,
so remove these ideal places to hide. They love these areas not only because
they provide harborage but because they can find other pest here that
they can eat. Keep your lawn mowed short and all shrubbery nicely pruned.
Trim trees branches and bushes so they don’t reach the exterior
of your home. Overhanging tree branches and overgrown bushes can give
scorpions a direct path to the roof. Seal all points of entry such as
outdoor cracks on the home (e.g. siding, windows, doors, pipes and wires)
with caulk or another sealant. Check weather stripping around doors and
make sure there are no gaps. Scorpions can get inside your home through
torn screens, open vents, and other openings.
