SCORPIONS

Scorpions are often found in dark undisturbed areas.  Like spiders, they are arthropods and not insects, and are predators of insects. In Texas and the San Antonio metro area, the Stripped Bark Scorpion is the variety that is experienced by homeowners, especially in newly built homes of the Hill Country. Scorpions have a hard exoskeleton which makes them tougher to control.
