Just How Dangerous Are The Scorpions In Lewisville?

According to entomologists, there are 18 scorpion species in the Great State of Texas but only a few of them present a pest problem. Of the few that commonly create a problem in Lewisville, none are considered dangerous, though a sting from a scorpion can be very unpleasant. Today, we're going to take a look at a few common questions we get about Lewisville scorpions and talk about how you can get them out of your home.

Can a scorpion kill a human?

Yes. Just as a bee sting can be fatal, a scorpion sting can be fatal to certain individuals. There is also one scorpion in Texas that can deliver a very potent venom that can be extremely dangerous. What is this dangerous Texas scorpion? It is called a striped bark scorpion. Fortunately, there are fewer than two dozen confirmed sightings of bark scorpions in the entire state. You probably don't have too much to worry about. But it is wise to become familiar with this species of scorpion, just in case you're the next person to confirm a sighting.

Do scorpions infest houses?

Not generally. Scorpions prefer to be outside but they can get inside by accident. When they do, they can be startling houseguests. Nothing can make your heart stop faster than when you lift a piece of clothing from the floor and find a scorpion underneath.

What happens if you get bitten by a scorpion?

If you get bitten by a scorpion in Lewisville, should you be worried? It is always wise to err on the side of caution. If a scorpion bites you or someone you love, seek medical attention to reduce the symptoms.

Why do scorpions get into homes?

When conditions outside are unfavorable, scorpions can be driven inside. A common condition that will have these stinging pests entering your Lewisville home is high and prolonged heat. We've had a few mild summers over the past few years but this summer has been closer to normal and scorpions have taken notice of the heat. It is a good idea to be cautious this winter as it is possible that scorpions got into your home during the summer.

How do I prevent scorpion problems?

  • Inspect the outside of your home and seal the possible entry points listed above. Keep in mind that it doesn't take much of a gap for scorpions to get inside.
  • Move woodpiles and organic debris away from your exterior walls; these are attractive hiding places for scorpions.
  • Remove lawn clutter. Scorpions can hide under many man-made items to hide from the hot sun. Stowing these items away can help to reduce scorpion activity.
  • Remove puddles and other water sources from your property.
