What are scorpions?

Scorpions are arachnids belonging to the same category as spiders. Like spiders, they have eight legs, lack antennae and wings, and follow a carnivorous diet, primarily feeding on insects. Unlike spiders, scorpions can be identified by their front pincers and long tails, which possess a venomous stinger for hunting and defense. Scorpions have a flexible exoskeleton made of chitin, akin to shrimp shells.

Are scorpions dangerous?

Fortunately, most scorpion species pose little harm to humans due to their relatively weak venom. Scorpion stings generally cause a bee sting-like sensation, resulting in tenderness and pain at the sting site for a few days. While all scorpions are venomous, only a few species are fatal to humans, none of which are found in Texas. However, allergic reactions to scorpion venom have been reported.

Why do I have a scorpion problem?

Scorpions typically inhabit dry and desert-like environments but may be pushed into urban areas due to new construction. Water sources that attract insects can also draw scorpions seeking an easy food source for your yard.

Where will I find scorpions?

The location of scorpions depends on the species and their preferred habitats. Some scorpions thrive in dry and sandy areas, while others seek refuge under rocks or in forested regions. When scorpions invade your property, they search for insect pests they feed on. Look for them near water sources, light sources, or areas with dense foliage on your property. Discover their hiding spots to address your scorpion issue effectively.
