    I can only say that while Crawlers and Death Stalkers initially feels like complete and utter bullshit, it gets easier...

    ...but it's still complete and utter fucking bullshit, because even with a Perception of 15, they'll still come out of nowhere and tag you. Having absurdly high Stealth really helps, as you can move around a lot and back and forth and hope to detect them first, at least before combat starts.

    And when combat has started, don't stand still, actually try to move around randomly. Not only does it increase your detection on them for each step you take, but you also have a chance of bumping into them, at which point they're SOL.
    Yes, hello, that was me.

    One method i sometime sused is letting them sting me, run away so they can't take advantage of me being stunned then quickly return fuck their shit up while having second wind. In later levels, where their damage and my hit points/armor/shield allwos, the least annoying way is just standing in one place let them do their thing and then mow the fuckers down, when regaining consciousness. Perception and stealth rarely helps and setting up gorrillion of traps, while throwing flares is too much busywork.

    I put down a few bear traps and use Yell to bait them. I then proceed to cut them into peaces with my machete.
