Where Do Scorpions Live

If you live in the Southwest, you’ve probably ask the question, where do scorpions live? Scorpions live in warm, dry climates, and are found throughout the Southwestern United States, including California, Arizona, Southern Nevada, Texas and New Mexico.  Some species of scorpions rest in burrows, while other species seek out shelter under objects.  Scorpions rest during the day.  They prefer tight, dark areas to rest.  Because of this, scorpions inside a home are commonly found in shoes, sleeping bags, gloves, and folded towels.

Common outdoor places to find scorpions include under rocks, in palm fronds, in piles of brush and wood, stacked newspapers and under any secluded debris or material.  The most poisonous scorpion in the United States is the bark scorpion.  This scorpion is a climbing scorpion and may be found under tree bark and in rocky crevices.

Scorpions enter homes in search of food and moisture.  Scorpions inside homes are found in dark, moist areas, such as the attic, basement, garage, bathroom, kitchen, and under the furniture.  Another place scorpions are found is inside the walls of a home.  Scorpions are capable of squeezing through a crack as small as 1/8 inch.  Scorpions feed on other bugs.  A recurring infestation of scorpions may be a sign that there are plenty of other pests in the home.  Ridding a house of other insects, and cleaning up freestanding water may serve as a preventative measure for scorpions entering the home.
