Several Tricks to Getting Rid of Scorpions
This morning, I went out to the kitchen and noticed Rebekah asleep on the couch..which she normally doesn't do. She has a very nice bedroom out in our office. It turns out that she got bit by a scorpion which was in her bed! That's the second time this week! According to all I have read..they want water and cooler temperatures. Pesticides don't work.
But cats, chickens, and caulking all help. Also, we need to send out the boys with a UV light to kill as many as they can find around the outside of our office one night soon for a hunting session. Apparently they glow in the dark very nicely. Can you believe these guys live at least seven years! No wonder they are so hardy and difficult to remove. If it's not one thing--it's another! Have you had to deal with this?
I've listed the best response I read to someone's question about what to do in case you are battling this problem too.
Marmalade supervising the building of the office three years ago.
Our unfinished office has a lot of seams that need to be caulked. Looks like I'm not done with renovation projects yet. We are going to have to make time for this project or Rebekah will not be safe. Hate to see her sleeping on a couch semi-permanently but I wouldn't want to sleep in her bed either! Hope these ideas help you. :o) I'll let you know how the 'hunt' goes...and the caulking!

He led you through the vast and dreadful desert, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock.
