Striped Bark Scorpion

Finding scorpions inside your home can be disturbing, and one of the most common reasons people reach out to Georgetown Pest Control.  The Striped Bark Scorpion is the most commonly encountered scorpion in our area, with a painful sting that is comparable to that of a wasp or bee.  This scorpion prefers dark, undisturbed habitats.  These scorpions typically do their feeding at night, and prey on ground-inhabiting insects, or soft bodied insects such as spiders.  These scorpions have poor eyesight, so they will lie in waiting for smaller insects to pass by.
