How to Identify a Scorpion
Scorpions are predatory arachnids that are known for their unique appearance. With their large, curved tail and accompanying stinger, they are easily recognizable.
Aside from their physical presence, however, they do not leave many signs of infestation.
There are certain habitats that scorpions tend to gravitate to, so if you have any of these around your residence, you may want to contact Healthy Home Termite and Pest Control for a free scorpion inspection:
- Rock beds
- Garbage and debris
- Shady areas
- Citrus trees
It is also worth mentioning that if other small insects like fleas have increased in number in your home, the likelihood of scorpions will increase. Scorpions feed on smaller insects, so an abundance of smaller insects is bound to attract scorpions. Reducing the number of other insects in your home is key to making it less desirable to scorpions. Ask your Healthy Home Termite and Pest Control expert about best practices and tips to make your home less desirable to scorpions.
