I found a scorpion on my kitchen floor
Question: Hello! If I come face to face with a scorpion on my kitchen floor, how do I kill it? Do scorpions move fast? Thanks for the help.
Answer: These arthropods are active at night. They are hunters, but they do not move that fast or chase after you.
Since they are predators, the reason they are hanging around your home is because they have found good living conditions or there are other insects that they are looking for as food.
