Scorpion Control Is Easy With Our Help
Scorpions are no doubt a dangerous and frightening pest. Though they are usually confined to the American southwest, they have been found in other regions of the country. All species of scorpion are venomous. Although there are only a few species that present a true danger to an adult human’s health, small children and animals such as cats and dogs are in danger from any scorpion sting, regardless of the species.
How to Get Rid Of Scorpions
Finding out your home is full of scorpions is obviously an unpleasant discovery, and trying to figure out how to get rid of scorpions in your home can seem difficult at first. However, the good news is that there are a few steps you can follow that will make the process much easier and make success much more likely.
1. Know What Scorpions Like And Where They Hide
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.
2. Purchase And Apply A Good Insecticide
Because they are physiologically very similar to insects, the good news is that most of the commonly used insecticides on the market today will also kill scorpions. Scorpion spray products such as Cy-Kick CS, Demand CS or Talstar will provide all around protection from these pests, as well as killing the bugs that they feed on, giving you a one-two punch of scorpion control power.
3. Make Sure To Treat In Areas Where Pets And Children Reside
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.
