First, to dispose of any scorpion that’s already there. An article from Wikihow advises:
Scorpions tend to be found around water sources, so a great place to look with care is around your sink, shower recess, or bathtub in the bathroom, and around similar wet areas in the laundry and kitchen. If you find a scorpion, it’s just a matter of covering them with a wide enough plastic container, sliding a piece of cardboard under the container to cover it, and then transporting the ‘guest’ outside.
Now, to make your house more or less infestation free, look for any possible entry points that they might utilize, such as holes and cracks in between your walls, behind your siding, etc. Begin your inspection from the basement and work your way up, repairing and sealing up any holes you can find.
