Eliminate their food source
Scorpions are carnivorous and feed on insects and other small creatures. To reduce the population in and around your home, it’s important to eliminate their food source. Keep your home clean and free of clutter, and dispose of trash promptly. You can also use insecticides or professional pest management to control the insect population in your yard.
Seal your home
Scorpions can enter your home through even the tiniest cracks and crevices. To prevent them from getting in, seal up any openings in your walls, windows, and doors. Check all window and door screens for holes. You can also use weatherstripping to seal gaps around doors and windows.
Turn off outdoor lights
Scorpions are attracted to light, so turning off outdoor lights at night can help reduce their presence around your home. Consider switching to yellow or amber bulbs if you need to keep your lights on for security reasons. These bulbs are less attractive to them.
