I live in a log cabin in the woods and have a scorpion problem inside what would be best ?
We have found them on the walls , carpet , kitchen floor, and basement and we have a 6 month old fixing to crawl. I want them gone we have used walmart brand over the years and hired someone few years ago and both didnt seem to get rid of them, we didnt see as many just a few a year but the past month ive seen 15 more than ive seen in the years put together! We have tried cleaning the clutter etc too ! I want to spray everything carpet and all to get rid of them for good they scare me even if they wont kill me i dont want to be stung and sure dont want my daughter stung ! My husband has got stung 3 or 4 times over the years and said it hurt a few seconds and went away so he aint flipn out like me.... any suggestions?
Getting rid of scorpions requires a combination of both chemical and non-chemical measures. Think of non-chemical measures (such as vacuuming, sanitation, harborage removal, and exclusion) as limiting or removing conditions that contribute to the infestation. These measures are largely preventative but scorpion control cannot be achieved without them. The next step is to come in with the real ammunition, chemical pesticides, that do the job of physically wiping out an infestation. Cy-Kick CS is one of the most popular scorpion control products on the market. Cy-Kick CS insecticide concentrate is mixed with water and sprayed around the outside perimeter of the home for excellent scorpion control. Cy-Kick CS can also be sprayed indoors in select areas (keep indoor spraying to a minimum such as corners, under appliances, behind toilets, under sinks, cracks and crevices, along walls and corners in garages, basements, etc.) Use glue boards in areas of suspected activity to help monitor your progress.
