San Diego Scorpion Treatment


How To Identify A Scorpion Infestation

Appearance - Scorpions possess a pair of strong pincers, four pairs of legs, and an elongated, segmented tail with a larger segment at the tip. They can range from 1 to 7 inches. Scorpions are uniquely shaped; if you have seen one, there is little chance to have mistaken it with another pest.

Behavior - Scorpions are nocturnal, predatory arachnids that locate their prey primarily by sensing vibrations. They prefer warm, dry climates. While many hide under rocks or seek shade most of the day, you may see one walking around in your yard near rocks. Even worse, some may try to beat the heat by coming inside. Scorpions have been known to hide in shoes and clothing which can be a painful choice for you or your family members.

Why You Might Have Scorpions

In San Diego, Scorpions usually nest outside and will enter your home in search of food and water. Scorpions commonly make their way into buildings through gaps under doors, windows, and in the foundation. It is also common for them to hitch a ride inside your home by jumping onto firewood, plants, patio furniture, and boxes.

Once they are inside your home, scorpions usually stick to a few favorite areas. Basements, crawl spaces, and garages are popular choices. Since scorpions are always in search of water in San Diego, they are also known for being fond of kitchens and bathrooms.

Getting rid of any piles of debris, boxes, firewood heaps or dense vegetation around your home can help prevent a scorpion infestation. Check that windows are sealed and closed tightly and caulk any cracks in your walls or baseboards. It's also important to avoid allowing any standing water to accumulate. Make sure to keep floors, corners, closets and crawl spaces dry leak-free.

Reasons To Treat Your Scorpion Problem Immediately

Only one species of scorpion in the United States (which is found in southwestern Arizona and southern California) is considered “highly dangerous” to humans. Only small children and the elderly are at risk of a life-threatening sting from this particular species. Any scorpion sting, including those from scorpions living in San Diego, can be dangerous to any person or pet that is allergic to insect stings. Even if the victim of a sting is not allergic, a sting is still highly painful, and a doctor should always attend to all Scorpion stings.

Scorpions are not known to breed quickly, but leaving any potential scorpion infestation can lead to an increase in population in or around your home. This increase will also increase the chances of coming into contact with a scorpion with potentially life threatening or painful results. Calling us to perform San Diego scorpion control can ensure your family is safe from harm.
