Scorpion Control and Prevention Tips in Arizona
Arizona may be blessed with a lot of sun. But the heat is not without its drawbacks. For homeowners, one of the most common problems with the climate is the way that it attracts scorpions. Here at Green Home Pest, we are frequently called to the homes of those in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, Peoria, Glendale, Surprise, and more, to address scorpions in the house and prevent them from coming back.
While we can eliminate any type of scorpion problem, prevention is often key, and there are some small changes that homeowners can make to their habits that should help protect your property from scorpion invasions.
Tips to Prevent Scorpions
- Keep All Holes Sealed – It’s important to explore your property for any possible entrance points. Smaller scorpions need only the tiniest of cracks in order to enter your property. Pay close attention not only to windows and doors but any area of the home that may have a small opening and find a way to close it.
- Eliminate Standing Water – Mosquitos are not the only pests attracted to standing water. Scorpions are as well. That’s why it is important to make sure there is no standing water on your property, inside or outside. That includes when you water your lawn, so be careful to avoid overwatering or creating puddles.
- Clear Hiding Spots Away – Once indoors, a scorpion will usually find a place to hide. But you have a bit more control over the outdoors. Scorpions like to hard in dark, moist places. If you move hiding spots away from your property (like piles of wood or debris), you’ll have fewer scorpions using them as hiding spots, and ultimately fewer scorpions that can enter your property.
What Else You Can Do
In addition, consider a bimonthly pest control service from Green Home Pest. Scorpions do not want to enter your property. They only do so because they can, and because they find access to the shelter or water that they need. With a bimonthly pest control service in Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe, and all around Arizona, you can be sure that any scorpion looking for an escape cannot find it on your property.
