In the yard and around the house
Take the time to remove dirt from outside your home that can provide shelter for scorpions. A single flower bed or some loose rocks around the house can be enough to invite one to roam your yard. Start by removing loose rock, bricks or newspapers around your house that have accumulated.
Take a walk around the outside of your home and fill any holes in the base board or walls that could provide an entrance to your home.
Clean and organize
Also, concentrate your efforts on the interior of your home and eliminate some of the mess scorpions like to hide in.
Make sure to take a second and inspect partially filled boxes in your attic, which can provide a nice and dry place for these insects to hide.
Also, look to fill any structural defects that allow the scorpion to come and go. They usually leave their hiding place at night to hunt for prey.
Eliminate their food
Scorpions feed mainly on insects such as crickets, moths, spiders, and centipedes. They can also eat larger prey like lizards, and rodents. To prevent scorpions from entering your home, try to also avoiding letting its prey in as well.
For instance, keep pet foods in an airtight container in the house, and lock up garbage cans outside the home. By limiting the presence of prey, you can decrease the chance of scorpions.
