Scorpion Defense for Home Exterior, Garage, Yard and Block Walls
helps to defend exterior areas. *Concentrate must be diluted
Scorpion Defense helps to defend garage and exterior areas of the property. This product is a non-poisonous repellent that will help deter scorpions from the treated areas. It is safe for plants and vegetation, but best applied at dusk or day when temperatures do not exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit to help avoid burning plant leaves.
Scorpion Defense is safe to use around family and pets. The ingredients consist of 10% cedar oil and 90% ethyl lactated. Based on manufacturing information, the cedar oil comes from Texas scrub junipers that are self-sustaining. Ethyl lactate is a commonly used biodegradable “green” solvent, and is found naturally in a wide variety of foods; as well as used in pharmaceutical preparations, food additives and fragrances. It is safe for plants, but may burn tender leaves when applied during summer, when temperatures rise above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. It helps cover existing pheromone trails, as well as repelling scorpions and other non-beneficial creatures by affecting their neurotransmitters as well as destroying eggs and larvae.
PREPARATION: Concentrate must be Diluted with Water. Has long shelf-life; can be premixed and stored unlike insecticides. Spray PRIOR to Scorpion Shield and Insecticides to avoid washing other products away. The more consistent and frequent the use, the better the results.
Spring & Fall Technique – to cover large areas with a Hose-End Sprayer
This method is best to do when temperatures are milder and heat does not “burn” up scent so rapidly. This method has 20 times MORE spray and 20 times LESS scent compared to using the pressurized spray method.
-Poor 8 oz. in a Hose-End Sprayer for 20+ gallons of Spray
Summer & Spot Area Technique
This method is best to do when temperatures are hot so the scent can better withstand the heat and for spot areas or those not appropriate for the Hose-End Sprayer such as the garage.
-Pour 8 oz. per 1 gallon of water in a Pressurized Sprayer
Doors and Patios
These areas are the most vulnerable even with a comprehensive Arizona home sealing. Scorpion Defense is a great supplement to Scorpion Shield when sprayed in a larger band width around the doors. It also beneficial when sprayed on the patio ground, walls and ceiling.
Door and Patio Technique
Treat with the Hose-End Sprayer or Pressurized Sprayer and apply as much of the ground, wall and ceiling around the door and patio area as possible. Full coverage of the area will give optimal results.
Garages are meant to be well ventilated and can be difficult to keep scorpions out. Treat with the Pressurized Sprayer.
Spray the bottom of the large garage door, around the door frame, the cement, along the baseboards and up the walls if able. Also spray the sides of the home next to the large garage opening. Pay special attention to open wall vents leading to the exterior.
Frame wood and block structures cannot be sealed fully as they have weep holes and ventilation components.
Treat with Hose-End Sprayer or Pressurized Sprayer and Mist the exterior walls from ground to 4 feet or higher.
Yard and landscape is quite different from various properties. The more vegetation, moisture and shade the more vulnerable the lot and the more repellent as well as insecticides are required for optimal results.
Ensure a good saturation in rock beds and around the base of woody plants or under vegetation on ground. It’s always best to keep a clean yard and vegetation litter picked up prior to application. Spray palm and tree trunks thoroughly.
Block and Wood Fences
Block and Wood Fence Technique
Treat with the Hose-End Sprayer and spray generously from ground to top. For block walls treat primarily in Spring and Fall for preventative measures. If spraying in Summer, spray at dusk or night realizing the heat of the wall will burn the scent rapidly. Wood fences can be treated anytime as they better absorb and retain the scent.
