Scorpions are poisonous. They stay in grasslands and savannahs, forests, and caves. They also visit homes, especially those houses with piles of firewood nearby. They should be avoided, and they should not be kept as pets, because of their dangerous stings and bites. A scorpion sting is venomous. However, some are not deadly, although they should nevertheless be avoided. The pain and other symptoms subside within 24 hours. Scorpions have an elongated body with a segmented tail curved over its back. They appear in yellow, blue, reddish brown and black colors.
Introduce a predator. Cats are good hunters. They would not eat the scorpion but they will kill them. Chickens are also good predators. They eat anything, bugs, worms and anything they can find - even scorpions.
Although scorpions can also be considered predators because they eat bugs, spiders and even small scorpions, they should not be allowed to live with people. They provide some good pest control, but they also harm people with a venomous sting. Scorpions have no place in the home.
