Scorpions are related to spiders, but I put them on the page with the stinging insects. The biggest concern I hear with scorpion stings is the potential of anaphylactic shock. I'm not a doctor and don’t know much about shock, but I know how to control, kill, and eliminate these oddball-looking insects. Generally, I only see them around Coldspring, Evergreen, Cleveland, PointBlank, Onalaska, and Livingston.
Scorpions love clutter; reduce as much clutter as you can. Old pieces of wood, bricks, concrete blocks and almost anything stacked will harbor these guys. Seal up cracks and crevices.
