Scorpions pose a problem for many property owners in Phoenix, Arizona. While some of these creatures are smaller than half an inch in adulthood, others may grow to over three inches! Their segmented tails usually sport a stinger that carries venom. Not only are they scary, but scorpions also pose a threat to anyone who encounters them.
Scorpions mostly hunt prey, which is usually insects, at night. Their sting, which can be extremely painful or downright deadly, strikes fear in property owners all over Arizona. Their harmful nature makes it necessary for homeowners to take measures that keep them as far away from their property as possible. To get rid of these dangerous creatures, you should consider getting professional help from the ACTION Termite & Pest Control team.
The Arizona bark scorpion is quite common in this area. These are the most venomous in North America, making them dangerous scorpions to encounter. This species usually has a light brown color and is very tiny. They can go up property walls and access entry points. Arizona bark scorpions are also nocturnal and love to hide in trees, wood, and rocks as they sleep during the day. Their sting is very painful and may cause an uncomfortable numbness. These scorpions go into their nests to hibernate during the cold season, and they reproduce heavily in spring. An infestation of this species is usually easy to locate using a black light as they tend to glow in the presence of UV light. A sting from an Arizona bark scorpion will usually cause acute pain and numbness in the affected region. Medical treatment is necessary immediately to avoid grave complications.
What Attracts Scorpions To Your Arizona Property?
Many homeowners wonder why their property keeps getting infested by scorpions. Understanding what they are after can help you control their presence.
Scorpions will often show up on your property in search of water. Just like every other creature, they require water to survive. You will find them nesting near pipes, drains, and water left out for your pets. Scorpions also tend to inhabit undisturbed piles of leaves, cardboard, and wood around your home. You should carefully clean up these piles to avoid accidents. When their nests are disturbed, scorpions flee into the nearest pile of clutter. If this is inside your home, they will inhabit it. We advise that you keep your home clutter-free to avoid hidden dangers.
