Natural Repellent: Lavender and cedar essential oils are said to be the best repellents. You can mix 20 drops of the essential oil of your choice, with water. Spray this mixture around window casings, doorframes and around foundation areas. Inside, spray around baseboards (may stain so test it first) and inside closets or anywhere else that could be used as a hiding place.
Better Safe than Sorry: Always shake out shoes, clothing and bed clothes. Don’t put your hands or feet inside anything that you can’t see into. Wear gloves when moving firewood, rocks and debris. Most people are stung by a scorpion that’s just trying to defend itself.
