How to Get Rid of Scorpions In House

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:

Prevention. 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.

Think like a scorpion. 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 is recommended.

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.

Trim and prune. 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.

Deny access. 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.

Contact your pest control professional. Because they are very similar to insects, most of the commonly used insecticides on the market today will also kill scorpions. Your pest control professional has the expertise and experience to safely remove these pests from your home. Call Truly Nolen today!
