3 Steps to a Scorpion-Free Home

*Read my Disclosure
No matter where you live, there are insects or arachnids that can damage your property and potentially harm you and your family. While some pests are relatively harmless, others can become very dangerous in a short amount of time. Even harmless species can quickly overpopulate, making containment and control extremely difficult. For any household pest, from ants to termites to scorpions, it's imperative to deal with them as soon as possible.

In the vast majority of situations, hiring pest control professionals is the most efficient solution in terms of both time and money. It's also the safest. Professionals are trained in the best ways to deal with all types of pests such as scorpions, and they have access to chemicals and equipment that make the job easy. If you suspect a scorpion infestation, contacting a professional is the best plan. Here are the three steps that lead to a scorpion-free home.

1. Proper Identification
Pest control professionals are highly trained to determine the type and extent of an infestation. Arizona Bark Scorpions are extremely common in certain areas, and seeing one in your home is a good indication of an infestation. These tan-colored arachnids are small and nimble, meaning they can sneak into your home through tiny spaces. Stings are venomous and can be life-threatening. In short, you don't want to mess with a scorpion infestation!

If you see a bark scorpion in your home or yard, there is a good chance there's a nest on your property. However, bark scorpions are so small you may not notice one until it stings you. Once you know there's a scorpion in your home, it's important to call a pest control expert right away to take care of the problem.

It's very difficult for most homeowners to accurately assess the situation and find the nest. A pest control professional can perform a scorpion hunt at night when it's easiest to find the nests and determine where the scorpions are entering your home. After locating the nests, it's time for the next step.

2. Safe Remediation
Most homeowners don't have the tools to deal with an infestation themselves. The best, and safest, thing to do is to call a professional company such as Crash of Rhinos Pest Control. Bark Scorpions have thick exoskeletons that are impervious to pesticides. Most exterminators instead target the scorpions' food sources such as crickets. Once the treatment is completed, you don't have to worry about dealing with scorpions in your home.

3. Protective Measures
Once you've had scorpions removed from your home, it's wise to take do what you can to prevent them from returning. A pest control company may offer home sealing treatment. Caulking and sealing scorpion entry points in your home is an effective way to prevent the pests from returning. You can also use a repellent spray around the outside of your home as an additional deterrent.
There are three basic steps to getting rid of a scorpion infestation: locating the nest, eliminating the food source, and sealing entry points in the home. In terms of time and money, it's generally most efficient to hire a pest control professional to complete this work. Hiring an expert saves you from an arduous and potentially dangerous process, and a reliable company will guarantee the work, giving you peace of mind.
