Scorpions are often found in homes or commercial buildings in newly developed areas or in neighborhoods where construction is ongoing. Construction disturbs the scorpions’ natural habitat, so they seek refuge elsewhere – including in your home or building. However, scorpion infestations can also happen in established neighborhoods without any obvious cause. Once they’ve moved into an area, they can be very difficult to get rid of. Although property owners can treat and seal their own homes, the scorpions will likely just move to a neighbor’s house.
