What are the signs of a scorpion infestation?

Here are some signs that may indicate a scorpion infestation:

  • Sightings: If you see one or more scorpions in your home or yard, there may be an infestation.
  • Shed skins: Scorpions shed their exoskeletons as they grow, and these skins may be found in areas where scorpions are present.
  • Droppings: Scorpions leave behind feces that may resemble small pellets or elongated blobs. These droppings may be found in areas where scorpions are active.
  • Hiding places: Scorpions prefer to hide in dark, sheltered areas such as cracks, crevices, or under objects such as rocks, logs, or debris.
  • Prey: Scorpions feed on insects and other small prey, so an increase in other pests such as crickets or roaches may indicate a potential food source for scorpions.
  • Sting marks: Scorpion stings can be painful and may leave red marks or welts on the skin. If you or someone in your household has been stung by a scorpion, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately.

If you suspect a scorpion infestation, it’s important to take steps to address it promptly. Scorpions can be dangerous and their presence in the home or yard can pose a threat to human and pet safety.
