We have had 7 in the house (+ one outside the door) in 13 months here in a new construction. We had none in the Centro in 26 months.

No one was hit as the help finds most and kills them. One of the dogs found one just outside the garage door, but a neighbor investigated and killed it before the dog got hit.

Our local species are not especially toxic, but crawling children and curious toddlers need lots of supervision.

You will definitely come in contact with scorpions in Guanajuato, and probably on a regular basis. This is probably a topic you should discuss with a pediatrician in order to decide whether or not you will feel comfortable with the situation.
