I have been treating my home with Demand CS and Delta Dust; why am I still getting a lot of scorpions?
Any ideas on how to get rid of them???
When treating for scorpions, the product needs to be sprayed in the area where they are. Generally speaking, scorpions are drawn to dry areas, and their main sources of food are usually small insects such as crickets and spiders. Keeping your home free of these insects will make it much less likely that scorpions will be a problem, so general pest control is always advisable. If they do get into your home, they are usually found in secluded dry areas such as closets and garages. They have also been known to hide in piles of clothes, particularly ones that have not been moved recently. Eliminating these hiding spaces will go a long way in making your other control efforts more effective. Because they are more susceptible to the negative effects of a scorpion sting, it is important to ensure that any area where your children and pets might play or live is treated thoroughly for these pests. Although, you should be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions on how long to separate them from the area after it has been treated. As always, feel free to e-mail or call us with any concerns or questions.
