Scorpion Pest Control and Elimination Measures In Your Phoenix Yard
Posted By MyGuy
Scorpion pest control and elimination Phoenix is a much needed service. The scorpion population in this area threatens
many peoples' homes. Calling a professional pest control and elimination
company will help begin the long process to getting rid of the scorpions
in your home.
The best way to take care of a scorpion infestation is to take preventative
measure in order to keep them out of the home in the first place. Scorpions
are not your average house pest, but it will help to have a cat or dog
in the home to help with those that come out of the walls and search for
water throughout your home. Cats tend to be a bit quicker than the scorpion,
but having house pets may at least deter the scorpions from coming out
into the open. Scorpions can hide out in a wall for a long period of time.
They can go without food, but will need to search out water. If you have
damp areas in your home, whether it is your walls, cellar or garage, the
scorpions have found a great place to hide and breed. Your little invader
has now created a growing population in your home.
Scorpion pest control and elimination can take up to one year.
Scorpions can flatten themselves to the height of a credit card and enter
your home through small cracks, under doors, door frames, cracks in window
panes, pipes or wires provide entry when not sealed. Cracks and holes
along the bottom of your home provide easy access.
The yard is the first attraction for the species.
Standing water, sprinklers or watering hoses will bring the scorpions closer to you. Any extra water you provide to
your land the more attractive it will become to the creatures making pest
control and elimination more difficult. The professional can help take
care of the scorpion population on the inside, but you will need to take
preventative measures to keep them from coming back.
- Purchase some caulking and seal up cracks.
- Plant lavender around your yard. Scorpions are not found in this easily
- Scorpions tend to avoid citrus. You can use citrus oils to clean, especially
in bathrooms or other wet areas. Put some miniature citrus plants in pots
near your doors.
- Let spiders live. Many species kill scorpions.
- Do kill off food supply pets like crickets, ants, cockroaches and cicadas.
- Keep the areas surrounding your home free from piles of debris, wood, rocks
or compost piles. These provide great sources for them to hide or breed.
Any damp or moist area is what a scorpion will be searching for.
- Get a cat. Scorpions are great toys for them and the cats, though not proven
immune, tend to escape harm from their quick movements.
