The easiest is backlighting at night for scorpions, or “Scorpion Hunting”. TO do this you buy a black-light flashlight on Amazon or at your corner Walgreens.

Make sure you shine the light at the base of the house just above the foundation. Scorpions LOVE to hangout just under stucco siding. Scorpions are also easy to find on block wall fences! They love all the sheltering little cracks and crevices!
#2 – Find Out If You Have Scorpions
One cool technique to find out if you have scorpions, comes from the Handbook of Pest Control by Mallis. He recommends creating an ideal shelter for scorpions outside:
- Soak an area outside by your foundation with water.
- Cover this wet area with a piece of cardboard or plywood.
- Set a large rock on top to hold cardboard or plywood down.
Because scorpions are attracted to moisture and shelter, this areas will attract scorpions already close by. Leave this test area in place for several days, then inspect under the cardboard or plywood for scorpions.
If you find several scorpions taking shelter under your wet area cover, your home has the potential of getting a large scorpion infestation. Time for scorpion pest control! If you don’t find any scorpions, hooray for you… Now you know you don’t have heavy scorpion activity around your home.
