Scorpions are mostly common on mountainous areas of the country. They are usually found under stones, between rocks, in timber piles and under tree bark. They are also found in attics, on walls, or in bedrocks. They invade houses in search of moisture and can be found in the bathroom, drawers, clothes, shoes, or beds. We can easily bring them into the house on fire wood for the stove or fireplace
Scorpions are predatory animals, feeding mostly on spiders and insects. They can survive for months without food.
Control of scorpions
If there are scorpions around the house or store room, we have, first of all, to throw away all gathered material around the place, like useless woods or irons, cases, stones and everything else that could be a hide out for scorpions. A thorough spraying around the place and in a distance, mainly in front of entrances, could give good results. Dispersion of an insecticide in the form of dust around the house, could also give sufficient protection.
