Scorpion Background Information

Scorpions are part of the arachnid family and are closely related to ticks, mites and spiders. There are close to 1,300 species of scorpions that have been found all over the world. Thankfully, most scorpions in the United States are not poisonous, except for two species found in the southwestern states of Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas. Scorpions are often believed to only reside in the desert, but in actuality, they are adaptable to a variety of climates and habitats.

Scorpions are unique from other insects with their most distinguishing feature being the stinger on the end of its tail which curves upwards over their body. They use their stinger to attack and paralyze their prey for consumption or for defense. Scorpions vary in color from black to brown, yellow and even blue. Scorpions also have eight legs with two pinchers. The size of the pinchers is often a good indicator of just how poisonous the scorpion is.

Scorpions are mainly nocturnal and feed on a variety of insects, spiders, centipedes, and other scorpions. Larger scorpions have even been reported to have eaten smaller lizards, snakes, and mice. During daytime, scorpions hide under stones, piles of rocks and cracks and crevices. When scorpions enter in doors it’s usually in search of water and shelter.

Tips To Control Scorpions

The best way to control scorpions is to prevent them from entering your home to begin with. This can be done through preventative measures such as sealing of points of entry into your home with caulk. Place sealant on windows, siding doors and any other area where there is a gap or hole where scorpions may gain access into your home. Secondly, it is best to remove outdoor clutter that is stacked near your home. These can be places where scorpions hide and include piles of trash, rocks, firewood stacks and things of that nature.

Keeping your home free of other insects is another means of keeping scorpions away as they usually eat smaller insects and if your home is ripe with them, they’ll make their way in. When scorpions enter a home they are usually found in secluded dry areas such as closets and garages since they like those type of dry, dark and quiet conditions.
