Prevent Scorpions in Bed
There are several things you can do to prevent scorpions from getting in your bed! The most important thing to do is to hire an effective scorpion control service on a monthly basis. As you can imagine, the best solution to keeping scorpions out of your bed is an effective scorpion control service that keeps scorpions out of your house entirely.
If professional scorpion control is not an option or out of the budget, you can prevent scorpions from getting in your bed with a few items and a little elbow grease:
Step 1 – Your Bed
Move your bed away from the wall a couple inches and put the feet of your bed frame in glass mason jars! Scorpions can’t climb smooth glass and won’t be able to climb from the floor onto your bed using glass jars this way!
Step 2 – Bedding
Keep all bedding up off the floor. There should never be anything left hanging from your bed onto the floor. Bark Scorpions love to climb, and can climb clothes, blankets, sheets, etc. from the floor into bed.
Step 3 – Hang a SMOOTH Surface
Get a piece of smooth glass or plastic a few inches longer and wider than your bed. Don’t use cardboard because it’s not a smooth surface and scorpions can climb upside-down on it. They key word here is smooth. Scorpions are great climbers as long as the surface has a little texture for them to hold onto.
Using strong fishing line or wire, hang your smooth surface from all four corners on the ceiling above your bed. The smooth surface should hang exactly over your bed but a few inches wider and longer than the bed on all sides. This will keep scorpions that are climbing on the ceiling from dropping into your bed. The smooth surface will catch any scorpions that drop, and because it’s wider and longer than your bed, scorpions falling from the ceiling fall on the floor instead of into your bed.
If you use a surface that is NOT smooth, scorpions will fall onto it then climb upside down on it above your bed and can still drop into your bed.
Sometimes hiring a great scorpion control service isn’t an option. In those cases, this is a good way to keep scorpions out of your bed… Sleep tight!
