Call Ridd Pest Control & Keep the Bugs Out
Bugs are a nuisance for a number of reasons. Many are intimidating looking and uncomfortable to be around. Some cause painful bites that can itch for quite a long time. Others can sting, causing searing pain or even allergic reactions. Scorpions are a blend of all of the worst issues bugs can have into one nightmare-inducing package. These intimidating eight-legged creatures have long tails with stingers, pinching claws, and are one of the largest household pests you might come across. They are often considerably larger than roaches, come from the same family as spiders, and in some rare cases might possess enough venom to severely cripple or even kill a human being. That’s why it’s so important to protect your property from these serious, unwanted intruders.

Frequently Found Scorpions
The majority of the most venomous and dangerous scorpion species live in the American southwest, including in the states of New Mexico, Arizona, California, and Nevada. However, generally only the elderly and young children are at serious risk of a fatal sting from one of these scorpions. Scorpions found throughout the rest of the country, are primarily located in warmer southern climates, but do exist everywhere else as well. While states like Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and even Florida may not see some of the worst scorpion species Mother Nature has to offer, these pests can still intrude into your home when you least expect it.
Scorpions are predators that feed primarily on other insects, much like their fellow arachnids in spiders. They also share in a few common behaviors, such as a constant desire for cover and protection. Thus, spiders and scorpions tend to both be found in things like wood piles and dense vegetation.
However, spiders and scorpions are tremendously different from one another. Scorpions do not spin webs and hunt by trapping as spiders do. Instead, they stalk their prey and immobilize them with the venom in their stingers. Their powerful claws also give them the ability to rip their prey apart. They are notoriously aggressive when hunting, and this is often what draws them into homes (particularly homes with other already-present pest problems.
Eliminating Your Scorpion Problem
Remediating a scorpion problem is a trickier challenge than many other pest issues. Whereas protective barriers do a great job taking care of a number of other types of pests by causing them to absorb a fatal amount of pesticide, barriers don’t tend to work as well for scorpions because of their ability to “tiptoe” through them on their small feet. This means they absorb less of the protective barrier and they’re able to survive getting through.
However, it’s rather easy to find and eliminate scorpion problems with a few tricks. Scorpions glow under a black light, so using one of these lamps during night time hours makes it easy to find where scorpions live on your property so you can eliminate their nest quickly. This also makes it easy to determine where they are entering your home from so you can treat this area more effectively.
