Scorpion Noises?

Scorpions do not make scratching noises in walls. In fact, scorpion activity is usually silent to human ears. The only time you’d hear anything because of a scorpion would be if it moved something like a leaf or litter. Door to door salesmen will tell you anything to get you to buy their service, and we thought we’d heard it all till this! Scorpions do like wall voids, but you’d most likely see them inside or outside your home.

DIY Inspection

(You can pick up a black-light flashlight from most Walgreens, or order them on Amazon.) Scorpions are easy to spot because they glow a bright yellowish green in the dark under the black-light! If you do have scorpions, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Responsible Pest Control delivers the most effective Scorpion Pest Control in the Phoenix AZ Valley!

Scratching Noises

If you are hearing scratching noises in your walls, the most likely culprits are rats and mice. Mice and rats moving around in wall cavities sounds like scratching during the night and early morning. This is the most common sign of a rodent infestation!
