    Many people fear scorpions. They have a painful sting that can cause significant discomfort, which is why scorpion pest control is necessary. Scorpions live outside in gardens and forests. They are found in hidden spots such as logs, burrows, or under rocks.

    Scorpions are nocturnal, doing their hunting at night. So, unless you disturb them, you are not likely to encounter them outside.

    If you get stung by a scorpion, you should get medical attention. The venom is painful and can even make you feel flu-like symptoms. Apply a cold pack to the location of the sting until you can get to a medical professional.

    While a single sting can hurt and make you feel unwell, they are not life threatening. The problem is that, just like many other pests, scorpions may come inside your home. They are unlikely to attack people, but they will sting to defend themselves.

    Normally, you might see a scorpion in isolation. However, if you see multiple scorpions, you are at risk of being stung multiple times. This means you have a serious problem and need help from a pest control company.

    Flickā€™s Gold Home Protection Plan will help you to keep your home free from scorpions and other pests. Our Home Protection Plans include a 12-month warranty and provide affordable protection for your home. You can find out more about our Gold Plan here.

    Common Scorpion Questions

    1. What do scorpions eat?

      Scorpions are carnivores, meaning they eat other animals. Their diet typically consists of insects, spiders, and other small animals. Scorpions use their pincers to capture their prey and their stinger to inject venom into their prey, which paralyses and kills them.

    2. Are scorpions dangerous?

      Although all scorpions have venom, only a handful of species are considered to be dangerous to humans.

    3. How do I treat a scorpion sting?

      If you are stung by a scorpion, the first thing you should do is apply a cold pack to the area to reduce swelling and pain. You should then seek medical attention.

    4. How long do scorpions live?

      Scorpions can live for many years, with some species living for up to 20 years in captivity.

    5. Do scorpions glow in the dark?

      Some species of scorpions fluoresce under ultraviolet light, meaning they glow in the dark. This is due to the presence of a fluorescent substance in their exoskeleton.

    Common Scorpion Species

    Black Rock Scorpion


    Black Rock Scorpions (Urodacus manicatus) are a redish brown, dark brown, or yellowish brown colour. They eat other invertebrates, such as cockroaches, beetles, millipedes, centipedes, spiders, earthworms and even small reptiles. To ambush prey, black rock scorpions sit near the entrance of their burrow and can detect passing prey by the vibrations on the ground.


    Black Rock Scorpions are found in shallow burrows (10cm deep) in the earth or sand in open forests and woodlands. Their burrows are found under rocks and logs. This species is found in eastern Australia including Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.

    Marbled Scorpion


    The Marbled Scorpion (Lychas marmoreus) is the most commonly encountered scorpion species in Australia as it lives in urban areas. Marbled Scorpions eat small insects including termites. It is a small, slender species with a dark brown marbling pattern on a light brown background.


    The Marbled Scorpion prefers wetter cooler habitats and are often found under tree bark, or on the ground under rocks and in leaf litter across southern Australia. They sometimes make their way into houses.
