Scorpions live a very cryptic life; they hunker down during the day, hiding deep in cracks and crevices in and around your home. Scorpions are generally nocturnal and most active during night time. Scorpions brood holes, under rocks, in the h-block piers, within block fences, in the cracks along the foundation where it abuts the wall, in cracks where the roof overhang meets the wall, around electric fixtures, and in dark secluded areas. Because scorpions harbor deep in cracks, crevices, or holes they are difficult to reach and therefore difficult to control. Scorpions are active year round. They may not breed as much in the winter as in the summer but they are always a persistent problem, every month of the year.
Female scorpions do carry their young on their back; if a brooding mother enters your home she can bring 25-39 babies with her. The young scorpions just jump off when they are developed enough to fend for themselves, grow and reproduce.
A female scorpion can give birth to 468 babies in her life time, in an entire life time the female can be responsible for the birth of 3042 babies through repeated offspring!
Depending on where you live and the environment, scorpions may be a pest you encounter from once in a while to many times a day. Some people are lucky and do not have a scorpion problem and may never, while the neighbor across the park is infested. If you live along a wash, by a golf course, on the side of a mountain, against the desert, or in an area that has harborage for scorpions, then you are sure to have some degree of problem. There are certain neighborhoods that just have an unlucky problem with scorpions. Scorpions can infest neighborhoods that never had historic issues; they can be brought in by neighbors who move in from a neighborhood having a scorpion issue, be brought in when landscape materials are delivered, or just move in. In Arizona, scorpions are a major issue. Scorpions will crawl up and down walls very easily. You may spot them hanging upside down on your ceiling or hanging on the side of your wall, scurrying around in an overhead light fixture, behind stored items when you move them, in between the sheets on your bed, in your shoes, or anywhere they can readily crawl into.

Backlights cause scorpions to become fluorescent and stand out like a sore thumb. Backlighting should be performed on a night with no moon at all and all lighting should be left off. After a few hours of darkness, the scorpions will crawl out of their hiding places and sit in the open. When black lighting is done and a scorpion is spotted, it should be manually disposed of or sprayed directly. A black light scorpion treatment is a good way to determine the actual level of scorpion problems within your environment and reduce numbers.
