Natural Scorpion Killer


Keep yourself, your loved ones, and your home safe from scorpions with diatomaceous earth. It's a natural product that works through a mechanical reaction, rather than chemical, to kill bugs. When the scorpion comes into contact with the DE, the powder will attach to the exoskeleton of the scorpion and begin to dehydrate. Continued use of DE will also protect your home from future scorpion infestations. Please take a look at our six steps for using diatomaceous earth to control scorpions, below:

Step 1:

Find the locations around your house where you have seen scorpions coming in. These can be cracks around doors and windows near any holes or cracks in the baseboard.

At night, pull out a black light and start hunting for scorpions. For those of you who have never done this before, you'll know when you see one. The purpose of the black light is to illuminate a scorpion, and when you find one it will reflect a fluorescent green color. Good areas to search are along fences, on the ground, and against your home. These will be the best areas to treat. Be careful while you're out looking.

Step 2:

Take some Crawling Insect Control DE and sprinkle it in the areas where you see or have seen scorpions crawling. Make sure that the DE is distributed evenly, like a thin layer of dust.

Using your applicator, apply diatomaceous earth on those areas, inside and outside of your home, infested with scorpions. DE is made effective by creating places where the scorpions will come into contact with the powder. Use the Wilcox Scoop Applicator to dust larger areas such as gravel areas, garden planters, your attic, and along the base of your home. The smaller Gilmour Duster is great inside of your home and in areas where scorpions can hide such as nooks, corners, and crevices.

Also, if you have a cinder block fence, treat those areas well, getting into cracks, joints, and the holes of the fence. Cinder blocks are often used by scorpions to nest.

Remember, DE won't stop bugs in their tracks, it will slowly dehydrate and eventually kill bugs after coating them; the idea is to get bugs to move through DE in order to get exposed.

Step 3:

Keep the DE treatment in your yard and home for as long as possible. The more exposure scorpions have to the powder, the more effective it will be. If it gets blown away or is washed away by water, you'll need to reapply more DE.

Step 4:

Return every 4 to 5 days for a couple of weeks with your black light to check on your treatment progress. Record how many scorpions you see each time you hunt for them. By keeping track of your progress, you'll be able to adjust your tactics and find more effective areas. Repeat this process until the scorpions are gone.

Step 5:

Diatomaceous earth is 100% natural, so you can rest assured that there are no chemical additives being used. Apply liberally, or even leave a protective coating down to prevent future returns.
