A liquid insecticide is the best method of eliminating scorpions indoors. Spray areas where you have seen scorpions. A direct spray will kill them but it may take a little time for them to die. Sticky traps can be used to detect and trap scorpions indoors. Place the traps in corners, under furniture, and along baseboards. Use many traps, and then move them if nothing is captured in a week.
Preventing scorpions from entering houses begins with removing or reducing the ground cover around the perimeter of the house. Objects such as rocks and other objects that can provide harborage for scorpions should be moved. Seal the crevices around doors and windows (some species can climb walls). Spraying liquid insecticides around the perimeter, especially into and under objects may be helpful in removing scorpions already close to the house.
Scorpions are very old creatures going back an estimated 430 million years. They are commonly believed to only be found in deserts, but species of scorpions exist in nearly every habitat including grasslands, forests, savannahs, and caves. They also can be found on all continents except Antarctica. Scorpions have developed a reputation for being particularly dangerous creatures, but out of nearly 1,750 species, only 25 represent a threat to humans.1 Even among these species, the chance of a fatal scorpion sting is very rare. That being said, stings are painful and no one wants to deal with scorpions around their yards or in their homes. Find out everything you need to know about scorpion behavior and scorpion prevention and control techniques in this ultimate guide.

Most stings from scorpions will be slightly painful and feel like a wasp or bee sting. In these cases, treatment usually consists of a mild pain reliever and an ice pack. More venomous stings from bark scorpions or ones that affect hypersensitive individuals may cause severe pain and swelling, numbness at the site, muscle twitching, convulsions, difficulty breathing, and in rare cases anaphylaxis. For these more severe symptoms, you should seek medical attention immediately.
