Is Onslaught FastCap Insecticide the best way to get rid of scorpions?

We find scorpions in our house all the time in various areas. I have a 7mo. old grandchild starting to crawl and a small dog in the house. I can't take a chance on my grandchild being stung by a scorpion.


Onslaught FastCap Spider and Scorpion Insecticide would definitely be the best option for your needs. It is specifically formulated to better target spiders and scorpions with a more thorough and long lasting coverage for these hard to kill pests. Keep in mind, no matter what product you are using for scorpions, you have to create a wider barrier for them than any other pest around your home. For general insects you would treat with a barrier around the foundation 2 feet up and 2 feet out. With scorpions you should be doing 2-3 feet up and 6-10 feet out on the ground. You can also spray inside around cracks and crevices, baseboard areas, and potential entry points such as around window and door frames and where plumbing meets the wall.  Also make sure to treat any landscape areas around your home that they would be prone to hiding in, i.e., mulch, bark, landscape timbers, rocks etc. You can review more information for protecting your home from scorpions in our article on Scorpion Control.
