Responsible Pest & Scorpion Control was established in 1991. We are a professional termite, scorpion, and pest control company providing services for 30 years.

Responsible Pest & Scorpion Control is familiar with pest problems exclusive to the Phoenix and Mesa areas, as opposed to general Arizona exterminators or nationwide companies. Professional pest control services are most efficient when the service specialist is intimately familiar with your home territory.

Our licensed service specialists are desert-grown and familiar with the insect and scorpion activity on your home turf for the best initial treatment and superior protection in the Phoenix, AZ Valley! Whether your needs are residential or commercial, we’ll use the best methods and most up-to-date products.

We can help you rid your home or commercial facility of rodents, insects, arachnids, or other pests including:

Here at Responsible Pest & Scorpion Control, our customers always come first! If you have a bug invasion for any reason between services, just give us a jingle and consider it done. We will get you on the schedule for a re-treat right away, at no extra cost to you!

Your initial service is a “clean-out” to exterminate pests inside your home and yard. After that initial service is done (and you have no more bugs inside), our guaranteed pest control treatments focus on eliminating pest problems from the outside before they can ever come inside! Scorpions, spiders, roaches, termites, bed bugs, and other pests thrive all year long in our Arizona desert climate. Regular pest control services maintain a protective barrier around your home and yard year round.

Our residential or commercial pest control inspections and treatments generally take one hour the first time, depending on the size of your building and the specific pest infestation.


Yes, Responsible Pest & Scorpion Control offers both residential and commercial pest control, scorpion control, and termite control services. We also provide pest control inspections.

Every year, termites in the Phoenix metro area cause more damage than fires and floods combined! Responsible Pest & Scorpion Control provides customized termite treatments in Phoenix, Tucson, and the entire Valley. We will perform an inspection prior to any termite extermination treatment and file a report complete with our quotes and recommendations. Our goal is to help protect you, your family, or your employees and customers.

Guaranteed Termite Treatments

Because every home is unique, we offer customized termite control and treatment options to meet your needs, including:

  • Preventive control
  • Localized spot treatments
  • Full-house corrective control
  • Renewable warranties (in area of treatment)

Topical treatments (like regular pest control) have no effect on termites underground and inside their protective “mud tubes.” To control these subterranean termites, we treat the ground around and under the foundation. A full-house subterranean termite treatment includes trenching, usually drilling, and sometimes wall treatments. Our termite pros drill expansion joints, as much as possible, to save homeowners from the look of drilled concrete.

Our company termite inspection and termite control elimination services are guaranteed against re-infestation for at least a full year. Your licensed inspector will identify the precise species and prescribe a protection program to keep your home safe. Extermination of your infestation depends on the precise insect species identified.

Prices for termite treatments are calculated on linear footage and drilling requirements. Each termite treatment is guaranteed, and that warranty is renewable for a small fee each year. Note that we are not able to provide termite control for manufactured homes.

After regular pest control treatments, we just ask that you let our products dry first. Once dry, they bind to the surface to which they are applied and aren’t absorbed when touched by paws or people. Usually, our products dry within 20 minutes.

For termite control treatments, our products are placed in walls or underground. Thus, there is no need to leave or stay out of your home.

The first time we treat your home, we will collect payment via ACH or credit/debit card. For your regular (monthly, bi-monthly, etc.) pest control services, you can set up your account with a card to be automatically charged after service is completed, or we can send you the bill via mail or email.

If you wish to make online payments, we will email you a username and password to get started. Then, simply access your account and make payments through our secured website!
