The most common scorpion found in Arizona, is the Arizona Bark Scorpion. These scorpions also happen to be the most dangerous. These Bark Scorpions commonly inflict painful stings; some of which can cause unfortunate symptoms or reactions… including death in rare cases.

Arizona Bark scorpions reach lengths of about two inches. They are yellowish-tan in color. They eat insects like crickets and roaches, and enter Arizona homes looking for water. These scorpions are not aggressive, and are actually pretty docile. They sting when they feel threatened… like when you step on them or roll over on top of one while you sleep.

Scorpion Control – Mesa Scorpions Booming!

Just in today:

In two days I have found two scorpions in my home. One in the kitchen sink and one one the tile floor. They are bigger than the ones I have seen before out here. I have two small pets…

Scorpions are on the move, but it’s no surprise. Scorpions are always hyper active in the fall. It’s scorpion mating and birthing season. In fact you may find a mother scorpion carrying around a hundred or so baby scorpions. Just dropping them off as she moves, and wherever she moves. I guess its time to increase your scorpion protection.

What can you do to combat scorpions?

2- Scorpion Seals – In extreme cases it may be recommended that homeowners do a scorpion home seal.  Scorpion seals can impede scorpions from entering a home by blocking cracks and openings that scorpions use to enter bathrooms, cabinets, light fixtures, and closets.  However, the walls of a home are meant to breath, to release moisture so that mold and decay don’t attack your home.  Therefore, its not wise to attempt to completely seal a home.  Further, scorpions can easily enter in any crack 1/18th of inch or wider. It is not realistic to expect all your doors and windows to close every crack a scorpion and slip through.  So a scorpion seal is only an added layer of protection, that again, only impedes or slows a scorpion’s assault.

3- Scorpion Traps – Probably the easiest step in preventing scorpions are simple pest control glue boards.  Scorpions stick to corners as they are nearly blind.  Placing a few of these scorpion traps in the corners will help immensely.

Just visit Joe’s to Get Scorpion Traps.
