The best way to avoid potential scorpion interactions outside it to wear proper clothing. Never wear flip-flops or shorts when tackling yard projects. When working at ground level gloves are also encouraged. Scorpions rarely sting unless they feel threatened in some way. So when wandering hands come to close to their area they will sting humans.
To avoid scorpions in the home some preventative measures can be taken. A treatment of pesticides around the foundation of a home is encouraged, especially if any cracks are present. Scorpions can fit into surprisingly small cracks and nest inside your home. Using a ‘dust pesticide’ is also recommended as it will better deter the pest from getting close enough to your home to enter. That being said scorpions are solitary creatures for the most part and removal is easiest and most effective option.
