Q: What is your best recommendation for a scorpion treatment inside a residence?
— Andy, AZ
A: Indoor treatments for scorpions should be targeted to voids like wall voids and attics. Those are the areas in a structure they tend to inhabit. Focus on the walls in the house where scorpions are seen the most. Scorpions in light fixtures point to the attic being a problem. Dusts are the best formulation for voids although aerosols and space treatments can also be used. Hiding places in living areas like closets and underneath furniture can be spot treated with a residual, but this should not be the basis of an indoor program. These are also good places to put glue boards for trapping and monitoring.
