Everything You Need to Know About Scorpion Season in Arizona:
Scorpions are rampant creatures in Arizona. You most likely have seen one crawling in or around your home. Recently, you may be having more frequent interactions. This goes to show that scorpion season is here!
When is scorpion season? In Arizona, it can sometimes seem all year long. However, infestation isn’t as much of a concern when scorpions can freely roam the outdoors. But, when temperatures rise they are seen more inside the home.
The height of scorpion activity is during monsoon season; temperatures are hot and the air is humid — this weather is the most desirable condition for scorpions. Unfortunately, this is also the most challenging time to get their population under control.
Scorpion season often runs from as early as March all the way to October. This is when all types of scorpions are rampant in Arizona.
Here’s a few helpful tips and tricks:
1. Seal all open entry points and repair broken fixtures-
Scorpions use windows, pipes, holes and doors to enter the home. To ensure scorpions do not have any entry points keep these openings sealed. Fill cracks in the wall, floor or cover any holes that may become an entry way for these creatures.
2.Eliminate outdoor nesting areas-
Piling trash or firewood on the ground, outside your home during scorpion season gives scorpions room for a good breeding area. Scorpions find comfort on these piles and will choose to nest right outside of your home.
3. Keep up with trimming any overhanging branches or bushes-
The shade of an overhanging branch is a great way to help beat the Arizona heat. But, it also enables scorpions to access your roof. This will consequently allow the creatures to crawl into your home!
