How To Protect Your Home From Scorpions

When it comes to insects, scorpions are known to be the most feared bug in the United States. This is because of the way the insect looks, but mostly because of the painful stings they deliver. Texas alone is home to 18 different species, West Texas being an area with a high, diverse scorpion population. In this blog, we are going to tell you where you can find scorpions in your home, how to prevent them from entering your home, and why Fox pest Control should be the extermination service you should trust for any of your pest problems in your Lubbock, home or business.

Why Are There Scorpions In Your Home

There are many reasons why you could see scorpions in your Lubbock home. One of the main reasons scorpions enter homes is they are trying to escape the brutal Texas heat. Scorpions search for cool, moist areas in your home to cool off and hydrate. They get all of their nutrients from feasting on other insects that also call your place home. Scorpions can live up to a month without food. As nocturnal insects that thrive in areas where humans usually don't spend too much time such as your attic or basement. When considering all of these factors you can see why it is near impossible to treat scorpions on your own.

If you come across a scorpion in your Lubbock home it is most likely you have more to worry about: You probably have a bug infestation or pest management problem that allows these scorpions to thrive. To be safe, call Fox Pest Control service for a free inspection that will give you the peace of mind you need.

How To Get Rid Of Scorpions

The best treatment for a scorpion infestation is to prevent it from happening. With scorpions, this task can prove difficult due to a scorpion's toughness. Thankfully, there are steps you can take as a homeowner to end or prevent a scorpion infestation and to perform overall best pest management.

  • Remove hiding spots in and around your home. Scorpions and many other insects seek places they can hide and remain undisturbed. Examples of these places are piles of firewood, under stones, cluttered spots inside of the home like basements and attics. Homeowners should do their best to store firewood away from the home and to clean up the cluttered area.
  • Protect your home from other insects. Scorpions’s main food source is other insects. If you remove the scorpions’s food source, the likelihood of ever having a scorpion infestation is almost zero. Fox Pest Control offers a quarterly program, which can help you prevent a pest problem from every occurring in your home.
  • Seal off any entryways for scorpions. Caulk all baseboards and window seals. Be sure that all of your door jams close flush and don’t leave a gap for a scorpion to squeeze through. Lastly, any cracks in the walls or foundation should be repaired or filled to prevent scorpions from gaining access.

Always check trouble spots for scorpions. If you know of areas in or around your home that scorpions like to hang out, make sure to check them regularly. Such locations could include the back of your cabinets or under a pile of shoes in your closet. If you spot a scorpion, you can attempt to squish it or vacuum it up. If you decide to kill it on your own, make sure to wear gloves and a long sleeve shirt for protection.

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
