THE SCORPION SOLUTION
Whether you have heard scorpions are in your area, found scorpions on your Arizona property, have seen them in your home or have already been stung, you have a home scorpion problem. Most residents then have some of the following questions:
- Where to start?
- Why methods aren’t working?
- Why are they getting worse?
- What information to trust?
- How to really keep them out?
START WHERE YOU LEAST WANT TO FIND A SCORPION
To effectively combat your scorpion problem, start where you least want to find a scorpion rather than where you “think” the problem is. The solution to a scorpion problem or scorpion infestation in your Arizona home is not the killing of individual scorpions, but controlling a population that is flowing through your neighborhood. You need to have a methodical and systematic approach to eliminate and deter scorpions on your property and ensure a long-term scorpion solution plan. Together, our experienced scorpion control contractors partner with you and your family to help achieve this goal.
THE FIRST STEP BASED ON A SCIENTIFIC APPROACH AND INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT (IPM)
- Weatherization and Sealing—From the Inside-Out
The first step is a comprehensive weatherization and sealing of the home to keep scorpions from getting inside. The weatherization and sealing should consist of 75% of the efforts on interior seals and 25% on exterior seals. This one step, if done appropriately, will make the most significant difference in keeping scorpions out of the home.
- Property Maintenance—Lawn and Yard
Reducing desirable habitats with regular yard and property maintenance is key. It is also helpful to reduce unneeded moisture from overwatering or leaky hoses and spigots along with keeping items off the patios and grounds.
- Black Light Searches— Lawn and Yard
While most of our clients do no do this step due to fear of scorpions, effective black light searches will significantly reduce and catch new scorpions that invade your property. These searches are best done during the warm season, on a calm night during the new (dark) moon phase.
These natural products provide a great supplemental strategy to repel scorpions from treated areas and help deter scorpions from vulnerable entry points and away from the home. It is essential to have an understanding how to most effectively use these products in the southwestern desert environment against species of scorpions that are avid climbers such as the Arizona Bark Scorpion.
- Pest Control with Insecticides
While this is usually a resident’s first approach, this should be considered the last phase of an optimal scorpion control program. It’s important to understand the different types of products available and what works best in arid climates with harsh conditions. Such climates significantly reduce chemical effectiveness along with their natural limitations against the Bark Scorpion species. Blindly hiring a pest control service to start spraying, dusting your attic and behind outlets or to do a partial or haphazard sealing will not control your scorpion problem.
