What is the BEST product to eliminate scorpions from my backyard?

What is the BEST product to eliminate scorpions from my backyard? I also have a dog who is very nosy & likes to eat everything in the yard, so it needs to be safe for her.


There are several products that would do an awesome job controlling scorpions. Cy-Kick CS is a favorite among professional pest control operators. Cy-Kick CS is a micro-encapsulated product. This means that the particles of the active ingredient are contained in tiny mico-capsules, the insect walks onto the treated surface and picks up the capsules on their bodies and then the micro capsules slowly dry out and crack and the active ingredient oozes out on the insect. These micro capsules make the Cy-Kick last for up to 90 days and also make it safer to use around pets, like nosy dogs that can lick or chew treated surfaces. The dog needs to be out of the area while you make the application and can return as soon as it is dry. Be sure to spray in the areas where scorpions actually harbor, rock beds, garden areas, bricks walls, under landscaping timbers and also spray around the perimeter of your home.
