Scorpions love to stay in warm or nearly hot weather. They can be very territorial and once you see a scorpion in your house, the chances of another being around would be very high. Scorpions are nocturnal and do not come out unless its time to hunt for a prey, or when it is disturbed, that is the only time it stings. Their stings are very venomous and deadly, this puts your family and pets at great risk. Scorpions are small and it would be hard for you to see them, they also like to stay hidden in corners.
If a scorpion leaves its outdoor habitat to find solace in your house, it means that there are more food sources for it in your house. If you harbor smaller insects like crickets, termites, cockroaches, be sure to have a scorpion infestation soon. There are other ways to dictate if you have a scorpion infestation.
How to Know if You Have a Scorpion Infestation
- MOISTURE: Scorpions need water to survive. If you have recently experienced a flood in your home without drying it up properly, you have just made a new home for scorpions. When the weather is hot, the scorpion goes in search of water and a moist carpet would come in handy as a new home for more than one scorpion.They can get into your home through the plumbing systems and therefore they are mostly found in the kitchen or bathroom. After cleaning up during a flood, the next thing is to call on our pest control service to take care of whatever scorpion or insect already breeding in your home.
- SMALLER INSECTS: If your house has other insects like crickets, cockroaches, spiders, ants, and centipedes, then you will find scorpions in it. Did you know that scorpions feed on other scorpions too? With the use of their venoms, they make the other insects immovable which means you might always find dead insects in your home. If your house is pest free, then you do not have to worry about a scorpion infestation.
- SHADES: What better place for a scorpion to hide than in a dark place? If you have trees and leaves around your house, there is a scorpion army forming outside. A specie of the scorpion known as the bark scorpion loves to breed in dark, wet environment. If you have a citrus tree or any tree that constantly shades leaves, its time to request our services. Homes in Phoenix, Arizona have trees, is yours around one? Then its time to put that call across as scorpions love to be housed in yards with trees.
