Phoenix Scorpion Removal
We at Assured Pest are gonna guess you just had a pretty strong reaction to that word. If you grew up in the Valley of the Sun like we did, it’s possible you might be pretty blasé when it comes to scorpions.
Or, maybe, like us, you want nothing more than to rid the planet of these creepy-crawlies, one Phoenix home at a time.
See, in our years of working in pest control in Arizona, we’ve learned a thing or two about scorpions. Things you might not know if you’re a recent transplant to the area or have moved to a less urban environment from elsewhere in the state.
Read over this little guide to the Valley’s nastiest critters. Remember, if you see more than one scorpion near or inside your home, it’s likely you have an infestation. Give us a call and let us help you take back control of your home.
Myth: You Can Buy the Best Insecticide for Scorpions at the Pharmacy Unlike spiders, rodents, beetles, and even cockroaches, scorpions are extremely resilient to conventional poisons. In fact, after nuclear weapons testing in Arizona back in the ‘50s and ‘60s, scorpions were seen nearby, pretty much unharmed. If these pesky creatures can survive atomic fallout, they’re not going to be rid by some over-the-counter spray.
Myth: Scorpions Die After Stinging You’re thinking of honeybees. Scorpions can sting their prey or in self-defense as many times as they like. They’re timid creatures, but you won’t get off that easy if you roll over onto one in the night.
Myth: Any Pest Control Team Can Handle Scorpions Scorpions are a special breed. You need to hire someone who has experience dealing with scorpions. Otherwise you’re just putting a band-aid on the problem.
Myth: Scorpions Are Extremely Dangerous to Humans This is only partially untrue. In Arizona, you might run into a Bark Scorpion, which can be fatal, especially if a child or pet is stung.
Scorpions, like the spiders that are their distant cousins, mostly use their venom to hunt prey. It’s designed to weaken things the scorpion wants to eat! So it’s not likely to cause any serious harm to you or your loved ones.
