Of all the pests in South Carolina, most people would agree that scorpions are among the scariest. Scorpions look ferocious, and discovering them in your home can be terrifying. However, they’re not quite as scary as people make them out to be. Still, you’d rather they not be residing where you live. Learning about them, and about scorpion pest control services may help set your mind at ease.

All About South Carolina Scorpions

The scorpion has a really bad reputation. The good news is that they will not attack humans unless they feel threatened. You’re not likely to get stung by one unless you touch it accidentally. If you do get stung, the pain will be more like a bee sting. Also, there are deadly scorpions located in other states (Arizona and Texas, for example), but not in South Carolina.

Scorpions tend to enter SC homes in the spring and fall. They can get through cracks that are as small as 1/8th of an inch wide. They tend to like spaces around trash, bricks and lumber.

Finding Scorpions Around Your Property

Scorpions are the most active at night, and they prefer to come out when the temperature is high. If you decide to look for these pests around your home, wear gloves to protect yourself. Using a flashlight can help you locate them in and near their hiding places.

If you do find a scorpion, there may be more where that one came from. Please don’t try to remove them yourself.
