How To Control Scorpions – Phoenix AZ
Use an Ultraviolet LED flashlight to inspect for scorpions at night inside and outside of your home and yard. Scorpions are easy to spot this way because they glow a bright yellow/green under the black-light. Black light flash lights are cheap and a common item at most Walgreen’s and other corner shops in the Phoenix Valley.
We recommend MONTHLY Scorpion Pest Control. Monthly treatments stay active and don’t wear off between services like bi-monthly ad quarterly services do. This Pest Control service also controls insects around your home that attract and feed scorpions… They LOVE crickets & roaches!
Eliminate areas scorpions shelter in! Scorpions take shelter when the sun comes up to conserve water. You can eliminate these areas of refuge by: Removing debris, landscaping stones, trash, or wood, etc. Sealing (caulking) cracks in block fences and concrete. Scorpions like these areas because they’re cool, and reduce the scorpions water loss.
