We Remove Scorpions in Alabama

What are scorpions?

Scorpions are predators that belong to the arachnids class. With eight legs and a segmented tail, they are categorized as a dangerous species. While some of them are harmless, it is best to ensure they stay off your property for the protection of your loved ones. Scorpions commonly found in Alabama include the Hentz Striped Scorpion and Southern Unstriped Scorpion, which is also called the southern devil scorpion. The latter are venomous, and their bite calls for urgent medical attention. 

Are scorpions dangerous?

Scorpions are notorious for their deadly, venomous stings. However, the sting of scorpions in Alabama is similar to that of a wasp, which means you will likely develop an itchy rash and experience a burning sensation. However, they are not usually a threat to one’s life unless that person is allergic to their saliva or venom. 

Why do I have a scorpion problem?

Like all the other animals and insects, scorpions wander from place to place to find food. If you keep finding scorpions on your property, you likely have a termite infestation since scorpions are fond of termites. They can crawl into your home or office through the tiny gaps below doors, cracked windows, and other crevices. If you have firewood, boxes, or potted plants lying around in your garage, it is possible that scorpions traveled through them.

Where will I find scorpions?

Scorpions are found in areas where there is mulch, pine straw, and woodpiles. Scorpions can also hide in your shoes, so it is best to ensure your shoe does not have any scorpion waiting to bite before you put it on. Scorpions are also fond of bedsheets and can crawl onto your bed using any clothing or bed cover that hangs from it. While this depends on the time of year, scorpions are typically more active during the night.

How can I prevent scorpions in the future?

Since scorpions enter the property through cracks and crevices, you should ensure they are sealed at all times. In addition, you should have your house professionally inspected to check if you suffer from a termite infestation, remove bushes, debris, and wood piles from your property, and use diluted lavender, cinnamon, peppermint, and cedar to keep scorpions at bay.
