Appearance and Size Facts

Due to scorpions’ iconic stingers, these nocturnal creatures can cause problems in south Florida homes. They hide under furniture, shoes, and clothing in cool, dark areas. While most scorpion species in the region aren’t venomous, their painful sting can cause discomfort and allergic reactions in some people. Some key characteristics of scorpions include:

  • A dark or light brown color
  • Eight legs and a broad, flattened body
  • Claw-like pincers
  • A venomous stinger attached to their tail
  • One to four inches in length
  • Carnivorous predators that hunt other insects at night

Behavior and Habitat of Scorpions

Scorpions usually live for three to five years, from egg to adult. They’re nocturnal predators whose primary prey is insects and their own species if a steady food supply is unavailable. During their food search, scorpions can get into buildings through exterior cracks. They also usually hide under boards, debris, or other shelters.

Signs of Infestation of Scorpions

Seeing scorpions themselves can alert you to an infestation because they aren’t solitary creatures. These arachnids can enter homes through wall voids and seek refuge in cool, damp places like crawl spaces and attics. Keeping an eye out for scorpions in these places can help you spot an infestation early so you can take quick action.

Tips for Prevention of Scorpions

Take several preventive measures around your property to prevent scorpion infestations. You must clear away harborage sites like woodpiles, trash, debris, stones, and landscape timbers that could be hiding places.

Store firewood at least twenty feet from your house and five inches off the ground to prevent scorpions from hiding near your home. Seal cracks and holes on the exterior of your house with caulk, and make sure your window and door screens are good. Also, eliminating standing water sources can reduce the risk of a scorpion infestation.
