Scorpions live all over Texas, and Katy is no exception. Scorpions are predators, and being nocturnal, they actively hunt at night. Because scorpions are always on the move, there is a chance that they may choose to explore your home. If they do, there is always the chance of a negative encounter between you and them. Children and pets are naturally curious and tend to be the ones most involved in negative encounters. 

Pest control in Katy can help you minimize the chances of scorpions in your home, and All-Safe Pest & Termite should be the company you call. We know how to get rid of scorpions.

The Life Cycle Of Common Scorpions

Scorpions have three major components to their life cycle. They start as eggs. When the eggs hatch, the baby scorpions — known as nymphs — look like small versions of adults and ride on their mother's back until their first molt. After the first molt, the babies scatter. After five or six more molts, the babies mature into adults, only to start the process all over again. Scorpions have great longevity. Many live up to 5 years, with some types of scorpions living up to 15 years.

Regardless of how long scorpions live, you don't want them living with you. If you find scorpions in your home, All-Safe Pest & Termite is ready to help get them back out. We are the area experts in scorpion control.

The Issues Scorpions Around Your Home Can Create

Scorpions are aggressive hunters with venomous stings. They use this venom to capture their prey. They are not aggressive toward humans, but they can sting defensively. Scorpions tend to live alone and hide under wood and brush piles, yard debris, rocks, and other small, dark spaces, including storage boxes and items piled in storage areas. Because of this, accidental encounters with scorpions can occur, and when they do, they can lead to painful, venomous stings. The better the food sources around your property, the more scorpions your property may attract.

  • Keep wood piles away from your house, and keep them off of the ground.
  • Eliminate debris piles. Scorpions can make good use of them.
  • Minimize landscaping stones. These are handy hiding areas for scorpions.
  • Seal your home. How do scorpions get in your house? Through cracks and gaps.
