I was getting them in my house, also. I use Diatomaceous earth. Use it heavily around base of house. I also pour it across my doorways at night and in the well of my windows.

Another thing I found for any bugs is Cedarwood (essential) Oil or GreenBug Spray (8 gallons from a qt of concentrate). It can even be sprayed by food. Both these products are safe around kids and animals)

As for the scorpions,. If you are chicken, like me. Before I found these products I would spray them, directly, with ant spray but found that if I took my eye off of it, it was gone. Then I would spray it and place a cup over it until it died. It took three days.

I manage a home that had a scorpion infestation. It took years to get rid of them. None of the over the counter chemicals and or poisons were affective.

Here is what we did to get rid of the problem and it worked like a charm.

Step 1. Buy glue traps
Step 2. Buy black light
step 3. buy handheld propane torch

Set the glue traps throughout the perimeter of your home. This catches the scorpions. Remember females carry their young on their backs. Hundreds and hundreds of them.

Use the black lite to search for them in the evenings. Torch them on the spot. this ensures you burn all of the young on the females backs. It takes about a month of diligent work to get it done but itll work.

Let me know if you have any questions and I can discuss further.
