The house I just bought sits on a slab foundation. The front is stucco, and the other four sides are cement board/hardiboard. I know where to find weep holes on a brick home, but where do they normally sit on other houses?

Thanks in advance

ALso, while researching this on th weweb, I came across something called a 'weep hole cover' ... what is the purpose of weep holes if you're just going to cover them? Do they prevent termites?

Stucco weep holes should be at the bottom edge of the facade just like soffit vents. They're small. BTW, do you have stucco, EPM stucco board, or EIFS?

How can I stop scorpions from using these weep screed holes as entry points to my walls? It's like their fav entry point!

Weep hole cover is supposed to prevent rodents from getting in. I've only seen them for brick. Of course it is perforated to contine to allow water to get out.
