Scorpion on a Rock

What are scorpions?

Scorpions are arachnids, which means they are related to spiders and share similar features such as eight legs and a hard exoskeleton. This pest also has a pair of claws and a segmented tail, with a stinger on the end.

Depending on the species, scorpions will range in size and color, but most you will see in Georgia are tannish-brown. A home pest control plan is the most effective way to handle scorpions near your property.

Are scorpions dangerous?

Most species you will encounter are not aggressive and usually only attack when threatened, so it is best to keep your distance from any you see. All species have venom and stingers, but there is only one medically dangerous scorpion species in North America; any can be harmful to people that are allergic to their venom. Although they are not welcome in any home, scorpions help control the populations of other nuisance pests.

Why do I have a scorpion problem?

The scorpion is not a pest that likes to be inside, but they will seek shelter due to weather conditions. When this happens, they will find their way in through cracks in the foundation, open doors and windows, and other holes in the exterior of your home.

Another reason scorpions will gravitate toward residential properties is food. Because scorpions are predators, they will follow insects and other pests inside.

Where will I find scorpions?

When scorpions get inside, they will usually hide in dark spaces, including closets, cabinets, under furniture, potted plants, and other similar places.

You might also be able to find scorpions in areas of your home where you have seen pests previously since they will follow prey.

Keep in mind that you might not see this pest during the day since scorpions are nocturnal, but at night you could potentially see them glow under a black light due to part of their exoskeleton.
