My $.02, since you also have a healthy toad population, you have a plethora of prey critters around your house. Remove the prey and remove their reason for visiting regularly! Good luck!!

I have one of those Bus A Salt dealies. Lots of fun to get those flying vermin.

So far nothing has slowed them down. This summer has been the worst ever. I've taken steps like caulking around the cracks along the bottom of the house, caulking all the outlets, wall switches and A/C vents. I even screened the A/C registers. (After a scorpion fell on to the dinner table) My question is has anybody else gone through this with any success of eliminating or severely cutting down on the amount of scorpions? My wife is ready to move which I'm fine with but how do we know we won't have the same problem where we move to? Luckily the housing market has picked up a little bit here. Last year moving wouldn't have even been an option.

Cypher WP.... you can thank me later......

Outside use only. Eliminates their food source and eliminates them.
Scorpions can enter your house easily, if a sheet of copy paper can slip in between a crack, around a door etc. a scorpions has access.

+1 here. When I first moved into my house, it was built on Desert ground. We had a invasion of Crickets. Then came the scorps. Once I got rid of the crickets, never seen a scorp again.

Been good for the last 20 years.

Except for the F**king Woodpeckers. They do more damage than any scorp did.

We have a lot of nasty critters where I live, but few of them are small enough to hid out in your bathroom slippers. I would not want to share my house with those guys. Good luck with the extermination.

LOL I had a woodpecker that used to peck on the metal vent pipes on my roof at the crack of dawn. He was a smart little bastard because every time I went out back with the pellet rifle he would take off. If I didn't have the pellet rifle he would stick around.

Demon WP is the only thing that is reliable. I understand Scorpions glow under black light. Mount a black light on your pellet gun and go to town
