Natural Scorpion Pest Control

Scorpions can get inside buildings through torn windows and door screens, or through vents and other openings in walls. For this reason, prevention is a good, natural method of scorpion pest control. Check weather stripping around doors and make sure there are no gaps. Repair or replace any damaged sections.

Make sure that trees and bushes don't reach all the way to the walls of your home, and also keep your lawns mowed. Additionally, if you have woodpiles or clutter anywhere near the house, it's a good idea to get rid of them since they serve as ideal places for scorpions. These arachnids naturally like to keep out of the sun by hiding beneath objects, and there's nothing like a pile of wood to keep the sun out.

For additional recommendations and control, contact a pest control professional.
