I know this might bother a lot of you due to the fact we have put out glue traps to catch any insect or scorpions who come in. †If it does I am sorry. †Please help me identify what kind of scorpions these are. Are they dangerous to my 3 year old girl? We have seen SOOO many in our new house. Scared to sleep.

No, not dangerous. If your daughter WAS to get stung, it would be like a bee sting. These are either from the genus Vaejovis or Paruroctonus, both aren't considered dangerous.

Some advice, if you see one, don't kill it. But don't pick them up by their tails either. Try coaxing them in a cup, then moving them outside. They'll eat all the flies, and cockroaches. They're peaceful really, they won't harm anyone in your family if you don't mess with them.

You can even catch some and sell them here. People are always looking to buy new scorpions.

Thank you so much for the info.! I feel a ton better. Any ideas on how to keep them from coming in? I think they are getting in under my sliding door.

Unfortunately no, I live in an area where we don't have scorpions. (if I was where you are, I'd be catching them all night long! haha)

You could try attaching one of those pieces of foam used for insulation to the bottom of your door so that it's flush with the floor. Personally though I'd stay up a couple nights with a blacklight and try to locate where they are entering, and then blocking it off.

I feel so bad for them when they get stuck in the traps, but I can't have them in here with my child. I tried to release one but I couldn't get the glue off of it. Anyone know of any live scorpion traps in existence?

Paruroctonus boreus. Very weak venom. (well to me, at least)

bee stings are alot more painful, IMO.

Also if you do feel like freeing some of them from the glue traps olive oil seems to work but I don't blame you I have toddler myself so I know your just looking out for the best interest of your child. Try to buy a black light and look for them around your house. A pest problem is a pest problem right now I'm dealing with mice so I'm in no mercy mode when it comes to hunting them down but scorpiosn can be beneficial...when they're OUTSIDE!
