Scorpion Information 

Scorpions are not insects. They are actually arachnids. This is because scorpions have eight legs and are distant relatives of spiders. They are usually found in the southern part of the United States and South America. They are venomous even though they can be as small as 2 inches. Colors of scorpions are usually red or black but there are some less common species that are orange.  


Scorpions hide during the day and are active at night. They eat insects, snakes, lizards and small rodents. Scorpions tend to prefer dark dry places in your home that are easy to hide in. Therefore, to avoid scorpions making a nest in your home, you can declutter floors and corners.
