How do I kill them? They are driving me insane. I have a 9 month old I can't take my eye off of for a second because of these buggers. One sting can kill a baby, did you know that?

I've caulked all my baseboards. I've caulked my ceilings around fans and lights. They are mainly in my bathroom- which has a HUGE service panel for the tub, but no door on it, no screen, nothin!

Help. If I get stung one more time I am going to lose my mind!

sounds like a question for an exterminator

Try sticky traps?

that's scary. get an exterminator asap. or if it's that bad, relocate?

Holy cow, is this common? That is really scary and if most of Texas is that way, moving South may never be in my future!

They are common in the country down here. Not so much in cities like Houston, DFW, Austin, etc.

Amazing, I don't know why I never thought of that. I always said with the economy in Texas I could get a nice house with a good amount of land but if I have to worry about poisonous snakes and scorpions, I may be better off staying with the blizzards in New York.

Thank you. I swear I learn something new everyday and love it. I think the biggest bug issues in New York State is ants and we can spray for them at least.

This is what I'm dealing with. Also, here is the wiki.

I'm really glad that we dont have those things on the east coast. I did a simple search on Google and found a guy that said repellents don't kill these things, but if you can kill their food source then you can drive them to better hunting ground. Here is the link. Try other searches for natural repellant and see what you can find. What is the Best Scorpion Repellent? (Glendale: apartment, house, buy) - City-Data Forum
