Is is likely or even possible for scorpions to enter buildings through drains?
There are scorpions and there are SCORPIONS!
I lived in Arizona for 8 years and the average scorpion is small enough to go just about anywhere and I did have them, as well as a bunch of other creepy-crawly guys, come up through the drains.
It's a favorite expressway for cockroaches also.
If that's true I need to ask where to find drain strainers fine enough to exclude such critters. Any ideas?

Stopping hair is a bit too fine - I just want to stop scorpions. The existing drain is 4-1/4" diameter with 2 screws about 2-5/8" OC.
Moen makes some drain strainers that may work for you.
Or you could make your own using stainless screen.
Moen's don't look fine enough to stop a small, say 1" long scorpion. Maybe I could put the SS screen under the existing strainer.
