Action, The Scorpion Control Solution for Phoenix

Scorpions pose a problem for many property owners in Phoenix, Arizona. While some of these areas small as 9 millimeters in their adulthood, others may grow up to a scary 8 centimeters. Their segmented tails usually sport a stinger that carries venom. Not only are they scary, but scorpions also pose an apparent danger to anyone who encounters them. Scorpions mostly hunt their prey, which is usually insects, at night. They are feared for their venomous sting, which could be extremely painful or downright deadly. Their deadly nature makes it a necessity for homeowners to take measures that keep them as far away from their properties as possible. To get rid of these dangerous creatures, homeowners in Arizona should consider getting professional help from the Action Termite and Pest Control service.

Arizona’s Deadly Scorpion

Arizona is home to many different scorpions. Understanding these species and what they entail better prepares you for an encounter with them. The Arizona Bark Scorpion is, in particular, quite common in this area. The accompanying danger is seen in how this scorpion is ranked as the most venomous in the whole of Northern America. This species, in particular, usually has a light brown color and is very tiny. This species has the ability to go up property walls and access entry points. They are also nocturnal and love to hide in trees, wood, and rocks as they sleep during the day. Its sting is also super painful and may cause an uncomfortable numbness. These scorpions go into their nests to hibernate during cold seasons and reproduce heavily in spring. An infestation of this species is usually easy to locate using a blacklight as they tend to glow in the presence of UV light. A sting from this species will usually cause acute pain and numbness in the afflicted region. Medical treatment should be sought immediately to avoid grave complications.

What Attracts Scorpions To Your Arizona Property?

Many homeowners wonder why their property keeps getting infested by scorpions. Understanding what they are after can help you control their presence on your property. These creatures will often show up on your property in search of an open-source of water. Just like every other creature, they require water to survive. This is why you will find them nesting near pipes, drains, and water points for your pets. Scorpions also tend to inhabit undisturbed piles of leaves, cardboard, and wood around your home. These piles should be carefully cleaned up to avoid accidents. When their nests are disturbed, scorpions flee into the nearest pile of clutter. If this is inside your home, they will inhabit it. We advise that you keep your home clutter-free to avoid hidden dangers.

What ‘Action’ to take when you encounter scorpions?

Homeowners are advised to proceed with extreme caution when they encounter scorpions. Dealing with these creatures is not an easy task. We recommend that anyone who encounters scorpions in Arizona contacts our professional pest control service at Action Termite and Pest Control.

Keep Scorpions in Phoenix From Infesting Your Property

Once the pests have been eliminated from your property, we will recommend a few tips to help keep them from coming back. This entails making the environment around your property less attractive to these scorpions. The first step involves getting rid of any material around your property that has the ability to retain water. The Arizona Bark scorpion, much like other living organisms, requires water for sustenance. These scorpions, therefore, seek out moisture and often find it in damp clothing and towels. It is advisable to shake out such material if it was left outside to avoid the deadly stings from a sheltering scorpion. Wood, cardboard, and garbage should be stored at the extreme periphery of your property as they are ideal nesting places for scorpions. Keeping them near your entry points will allow these creatures into your home.

These scorpions, and other insects, are usually drawn by bright white lighting. These should be switched out for softer yellow lighting, which is less attractive. Homeowners in scorpion prone areas should also stay vigilant and contact Action Termite and Pest Control as soon as they spot scorpions on their property. You may also consider keeping a cat or a dog as they are proven, scorpion predators. Getting rid of other pests and insects deprives scorpions of their prey and keeps your home from becoming a hunting ground for them. Pouring boric acid around suspected nests is also a verified control measure for scorpions. This measure can, however, only slightly manage the situation. If you spot scorpions returning to your property, immediately contact Action Termite and Pest Control for assistance.
