Scorpion Removal & Control


A relative to the spider (arachnids), scorpions have a frightening appearance that is well-deserved. These stinging, venomous creatures are notorious for hiding in gardens and other outdoor areas and striking if they feel threatened. If you see a scorpion in your home, do not approach it. Their tail comes in two parts, and when the two parts are taken apart venom is released. They will strike you and it could be fatal, so please call the professional wildlife removal team in Wildlife X Team® at (817) 431-3007 to remove the scorpion(s) from your home. 

Scorpion Problems

  • Toxic stinging can be fatal
  • Their stings can attack the nervous system and cause severe damage
  • They can hide in clothes, shoes, and other areas that make them hard to see
  • They can sneak in your home through the smallest holes

How to Get Rid of Scorpions for Good

In order to make your home and property less attractive to scorpions, you can make changes to their habitat.

Remove any piles of sticks or rock gatherings: Scorpions are nocturnal, so they look for a place to hide during the day. Removing any potential hiding spots in your home will reduce your risk of scorpions in your home.

Seal gaps in doors and windows: Scorpions can crawl through small holes, so be sure to caulk and seal any holes in your home. Weather stripping is another helpful defense against scorpions. 

Avoid Getting Stung

Even with the best exclusion methods, there's still a chance you may encounter a scorpion. There are steps you can take to protect yourself: 

  • Avoid walking barefoot - It's best to avoid walking barefoot, especially at night. Scorpions are nocturnal, which means they are out hunting for food at night. Walking barefoot increases the likelihood that you'll accidentally step on one. 
  • Inspect clothing, shoes, and other objects before use - Scorpions are always looking for the best place to hide. That hiding spot may be in your clothing, shoes, or other objects. It's important to shake and inspect everything before using it. 
  • Do not swat at scorpions - If you have a scorpion on your body, do not swat at it or hit it. This increases your likelihood of getting stung. Instead, brush the bug off your body and walk away. 

How to Identify a Scorpion

Scorpions are in the spider family; they also have eight legs. They are about 2 inches in length, and may be reddish-brown, black, yellow or blue. They are most identifiable by the pincers in the front of their body and the tail that curves over the back of their body. Scorpions are nocturnal, so the best way to recognize them at night is with a UV light as they glow in the blacklight. 

Types of Scorpions

There are a variety of types of scorpions in the United States, including:

  • Bark Scorpion - The Bark Scorpion is the most venomous scorpion in America. It can be found in Arizona, New Mexico, and parts of California. Bark Scorpions are about 2.5" long. They have tan bodies with slightly darker backs. Bark scorpions are nocturnal. 
  • Striped Bark Scorpion - Striped Bark Scorpions are common in Southwest United States. Their venom is not poisonous. They are pale yellow brown in color,  and have two stripes down their back. They enjoy a sunny and dry habitat. 
  • Arizona Hairy Scorpion - The Arizona Hairy Scorpion is found in Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado. They like dry, hot weather. The Arizona Hairy Scorpion is covered in hair.
