How often do you think about scorpions? If you don’t see these pests often, you probably don’t pay much mind to them. If a scorpion were to invade your home, you would start thinking about them. Maybe that is why you are here today. Here are some things to think about that will help you understand the scorpions inside your Houston home. If you would rather not think about the scorpions inside your home but would like to find a quick solution to get them out, call our team. We will walk you through our Houston pest control plans and find a solution to your problem.

Are There Different Types Of Scorpions?

Texas is home to more than a few different types of scorpions. The most common home-invading species is the striped bark scorpion. This eight-legged arachnid has two pincers and a long segmented tail tipped with a stinger. Although venomous, the striped back scorpion is not as dangerous as some other species in our area. Bark scorpions glow blue when exposed to ultraviolet light. Use a UV light to identify these pests at night in and around your home. If you are stung by a scorpion and start to experience symptoms beyond minor to moderate pain, seek medical attention. 

What Do Scorpions Eat If They're In My House?

Have you ever wondered, what do scorpions eat? We’ll give you a hint, they do not live off vegetation the way other bugs do. Scorpions eat living and dead insects. They hunt for insects around properties. If scorpions are inside your home, they will look for interior pests to feed on. The more pest problems your home has, the more options scorpions will have for tasty treats. This is why we recommend a total pest control plan for homeowners trying to combat these stinger-tailed pests. If you are trying to find a plan that will not break your budget and will keep scorpions out of your home, hire the experts at All-Safe Pest & Termite. We offer detailed general pest control options that are sure to meet your need.

Where Do Scorpions Like To Hide In My Home?

Scorpions are not the easiest pests to identify. When they invade area homes, they like to hide in hard-to-reach areas. Some common places you might find scorpions hiding include around attics, roofing, pipelines, furniture, cabinets, crawl spaces, and potted plants. It is these types of areas that make scorpions feel secure when crawling around indoors. In order to prevent scorpions from getting inside and hiding, we recommend putting in place some exclusion tips. Here are a few simple options to reduce your chances of finding these pests indoors.

  • Use a caulking gun and some silicone caulk to fill in holes, gaps, and cracks around your home’s exterior.
  • Make sure all of your window/door screens are in good working condition.
  • Install weatherstripping around unprotected doors and windows.
  • Invest in high-quality door sweeps for exterior doors.
