5 tips to help deal with scorpions found in your home

These critters can easily become unwanted house guests for Valley residents and disposing of them can be difficult.

If you come across scorpions in your home, here are a few tips to get rid of them.

  1. Don't hit it with a fly swatter - If you come across a scorpion with babies on its back, don't hit it with anything. The babies could scatter, causing an infestation.
  2. Suck them up with a vacuum - By using a vacuum, you keep all the scorpions contained, avoiding the chance of them escaping back into your home. 
  3. No wood piles and river rocks - Scorpions head to homes looking for moisture and food sources, and wood and rocks are prime locations.
  4. Always check your shoes - Shoes are a prime hiding spot for scorpions.
  5. Keep a black light handy - If you shine a black light on a scorpion, their body will illuminate and become visible in the darkness.

These are just a few suggestions to help you deal with scorpions, but ultimately, scorpions can be very dangerous. In most cases, scorpion removal should best be left to the professionals.
