A wide variety of pests can invade your home: ants, roaches, field mice, even bed bugs. But one of the most dangerous of pests that are found throughout our area are scorpions. If you are finding yourself with these most unwanted invaders, you want to get rid of them as soon as possible.

Where Scorpions Like to Hide

You have probably seen scorpions outside, but did you know that these dangerous arachnids can find their way into your home? Scorpions are active at night, when they hunt for food such as on crickets and other insects. They often hang out underneath rocks and ledges, but they also hide out in the crawlspaces underneath buildings. This gives them access to find their way into the living space of your home.

One of the most common species of scorpion is the bark scorpion. This particular scorpion can actually scale walls and crawl along ceilings. This is how they end up in beds and even can make their way into cribs. At one-to-three inches in length, it is easy to miss the existence of one of these pests until after a family member is bitten.

Dangers of Scorpion Stings

The sting of the bark scorpion can cause severe pain to the person or pet who is bitten. The pain can advance into numbness around the site of the sting. Victims have developed breathing issues that progress into respiratory paralysis. Some individuals develop convulsions and muscle spasms. Individuals can be allergic to scorpions in much the same way that some individuals are allergic to bees. These predatory creatures must be dealt with quickly if an infestation is suspected.
