Scorpion Repellent

Scorpions are adaptable creatures but are sensitive to moisture loss, so they stay hidden during the heat of the day and come out at night. They prefer to hide in dark cracks or crevices to escape the sun.

To reduce the risk of infestation, homeowners should check their homes and yards for the presence of scorpions. They might be found in flower vases, mulch piles, under wood chips or pine straw, and in stacks of boxes or other items on the floor. If scorpions are present in the home, possible entry points might be the small cracks and crevices in and around the walls; scorpions can easily crawl through these tight spaces. Garage doors are a common entry point for scorpions. They often enter homes through vents called "weep holes" that are located near ground level.

The best way to keep scorpions out of a house is to take prevention beforehand. Eliminate scorpion hiding places like woodpiles and clutter. Move mulch away from the foundation and weather-strip doors and windows. Small pieces of screen in weep holes can deter scorpions from entering.

Seek a pest control professional to keep scorpions from invading your home.
