Ways to Keep Scorpions Off of Your Property
With summer heat peaking, there's a better chance of crossing paths with a scorpion. Although deaths from scorpions are very rare, you still don't want to take your chances. The Arizona bark scorpion, in particular, is potentially deadly, especially when a small child or elderly person is stung. By taking some basic measures, you can reduce the risk of scorpions becoming residents on your property. In the event that you do get scorpions in your yard or home, you can play it safe by calling in for professional removal. At Core Pest Solutions, our crew is expertly trained in scorpion removal. We'll show up quickly to thoroughly remove the threat of scorpions from your home.
Tips for Keeping Scorpions Away
Bark scorpions like to hide out under debris that is left out in yards. By removing any unneeded items that are creating clutter outside your home, you can deter scorpions from taking up residence. When you take precautions to keep scorpions out of your yard, it then becomes less likely that they'll come inside your home in search of prey. You can also keep scorpions out of your home by sealing up any gaps that might give them a way to get inside. You'll want to check around doors, windows, and bathroom vents. Adding screens to bathroom vents is a great way to reduce the chances of them coming into the home.
Another method for keeping scorpions away is by using a pesticidal spray around exterior windows and doors. But you'll want to bear in mind that it typically takes 3 to 5 days for the spray to affect the scorpions. Then, once the spray does have an impact on them, you may see them doing bizarre things, such as sitting out in the open in your home during the daytime, even though they're nocturnal by nature.
And if you're simply trying to confirm that scorpions are in the home, but you're having a hard time seeing them, you can use black-lighting to make it easier to spot them. Then you can give us a call to handle the removal.
