Ok.....I know lots of people are probably tired of this subject. But I would like to ask if anybody at one time had scorpions in their home and eventually was able to get rid of them completly??? I have heard that once you have them, you will always have them, is that true? I just bought a home and did not know it was infested with these critters......the first night we moved in my husband killed 4o of them in a brick planter with a black light.......I also found out that most of the nieghboors have them as well,just not as bad. OUr home is 4 houses away from a dry stream bed on the side of the community. Inside of the house we have found 2, so that is good news. I just had stucco put on my brick wall in hope that it can help with the scorps, they love to be in the colums of the brick wall. I also started pest control service. In addition to that we have also filled any cracks outside and inside and put screens on all the ac vents (since one did come out of the vent) The only thing I am not sure of what to do is with the J-rail along the foundation of the home, we did see a few scorps there, I dont know if I should seal that rail, since I did hear from someone that this is intended for the home to breath and should not be sealed. I am hoping that eventually we can get this under control and eliminate them for good from our property........ Can anyone just share their success story (I know that there has to be people that have won this war).....that would be great. The only other choice would be to move, since I do have 1 infant and 1 toddler.
