One of the most feared insects that can gain access into your home is the ever intimidating scorpion. Scorpions are known for their vicious looking stinger and their claw like legs. Scorpions come in many different sizes and species, all of which are great at hiding from humans and within the walls of your home. Scorpions typically travel alone and can hide in areas like the kitchen at nighttime or even your favorite pair of shoes. Many people have experienced the sting of a scorpion by slipping on their favorite pair of sneakers unaware that a scorpion was hiding out in there.
Natural Scorpion Control … Are Chickens the Answer?
Scorpions are great scavengers and enjoy dry areas; however, they often make their way into homes as well. Some people have gone to extremes to keep scorpions off of their property and away from their homes. One strategy that will not fit into most family lifestyles is to purchase a chicken. Yes an actual clucking chicken. Chickens eat scorpions, so some homeowners have purchased a chicken to cluck around their property and eat any sign of scorpions right up. Unfortunately, chickens do not make great house pets, so keeping scorpions from crawling around your kitchen or closet cannot always easily and practically be remedied by a chicken!
