Stinging Scorpions – How to get rid of them!




Here at Pest Patrol Termite & Pest Control we get calls from frantic customers who have found a Stinging Scorpion in their home and want to know how to get rid of them.   These menacing pests can strike fear in anyone!  A quick response is vital in gaining control.

Scorpions can inflict a venomous and very painful sting especially to children and even our pets.   They can be dangerous to individuals with allergic reactions to the stings.

Generally, scorpions are predators and hunt and eat other pests. But they tend to hang around areas where we live.  They can be found on exteriors but inside they like to hide in areas that we unfortunately come into contact with them!


Here are 5 tips to keep your home free of these creatures:


  • Seal entrances and doorways.
  • Seal cracks and crevices around soffit and brick line.
  • Clean up heavy foliage and debris around foundation.
  • Remove wood piles next to foundation.
  • Trim shrubs and trees away from structure.


We want you to enjoy your home and feel comfortable and safe from these types of pests.  If you have questions about scorpions or other stinging pests…or any other kind of pest…call Pest Patrol at 325-673-6700 and ask for me, Weldon Hurt.  I’ll be happy to speak with you any time!
