I live in Las Vegas and we had a problem with scorpions, someone told us to use diatomaceous earth and it worked. Just pour it around your house and property line and no more scorpions.

Why can't you shoot them? Maybe you can just stomp on them.

Ya, we try to watch out for that. We always rinse out their mouths if the do go after the toads. The dogs seem to never learn that nipping at toads is a bad idea.

That works for doorways/entries. We have bark scorpions here which can climb. They get into the attic and find there way in through the interior walls. We've sealed up as much of there entry points as possible but they're sneaky little bastards!

I have the answer for you - give me your address and I will ship you a crap load of brown recluse spiders. Brown recluse's eat scorpion guts like a Cajuns suck the heads of mudbugs... .In our part of the country you either get browns or stingers....

Chickens will take on just about anything

I've seen a chicken and a western diamondback rattlesnake go head to head and the chicken always win

Its not they dont get stung. They get stung but they have some sort of immunity I dont know what it is.
