How to find scorpion burrows

Since the bark scorpion is nocturnal, it can be hard to spot the critter itself. But that doesn't mean you don't need professional pest control services. When you're checking for signs of scorpions, look for:

  • An excess of spider webs: scorpions eat spiders and small bugs in webs and will make a home close to wherever the spiders are
  • Nests around unkempt shrubs: scorpions will burrow underground near overgrown vegetation or large rocks for shade.
  • Citrus trees with plenty of shade: scorpions prefer dark, damp environments that certain citrus trees are known to create around their roots.
