An encounter with a scorpion can be frightening. When scorpions lurk in your home or garage, they are looking for food or warmth. They can be tricky to get rid of, so we’ve compiled a list of how to get rid of scorpions at the first sign of an infestation.
Scorpions are not insects. They belong to the arachnid family, making them a cousin of spiders. Scorpions have a tough exoskeleton, pincers, and a long stinger filled with venom.
Scorpion mating season begins in spring lasting into the early fall months. A few months later, the female will give birth to 20-100 scorplings. Scorpions are live bearers – no eggs. The scorplings will travel on moms back until her first molt (7-30 days).
Scorpions feed on crickets and roaches. They can even survive on water alone for several months. Have a pest control company regularly spray your home’s foundation to kill the scorpion’s food source, and them.
