Scorpion

The Scorpion can be found in many areas of town. However some areas are much worse than others and the population of these omnious insects continue to grow.

They do not like to be inside of your home. They usually just happen to wander in while hunting for food. There favorite place to live is inside of block fences, wood piles, under rock, and in the cracks and crevices around your home. If you have seen scorpions in your home it is a good idea to get a black light and search in and around your home to see where they are living. When you shine the black light on them they glow a florescent green. Although painful the sting from a scorpion has not proved to be fatal to anyone in thirty years. Back To Top
