During dry weather, scorpions are attracted to moisture. Because of this habit, they may be trapped by spreading wear burlap bags and collecting the scorpions during the day. Scorpions are discouraged from areas around homes by removing potential cover, such as stones, lumber, and other debris. Sealing entrances into homes can also exclude them. Applications of residual insecticides can increase scorpion control. Applications should be directed to harborages, such as stone piles. It is not necessary to treat lawns. Exterior foundation treatments every month with a pesticide directed to scorpions will provide control
