PEST CONTROLIdentify the scorpion pest species and learn about
the safer and effective scorpion control methods.

Scorpions are known to sting as a defense mechanism or as a way to kill prey. Humans will usually experience mild symptoms that are similar to that of a bee sting, such as temporary pain, a burning sensation or localized swelling. However, there are a handful of species around the world that possess more dangerous venom, which can be potentially fatal to humans.

The key to preventing scorpions is to eliminate harborage sites around the property including woodpiles, trash and debris. Homeowners should remove stones and landscape timbers from the property, and store firewood at least twenty feet from the home and five inches up off the ground. 

If you are concerned about scorpions on your property, contact a pest professional. They will be able to inspect your home, confirm the scorpion species and recommend a course of scorpion control to get rid of scorpions.
