Scorpions are a massive pest in Arizona, and you’ll definitely want to keep them out of your home at some point in the future. They can destroy valuable property, damage your home or business, and even injure your family- so what do you need to do to get rid of them?
It starts with identification. Scorpions are pretty easy to spot when you know what you’re looking for. There are many different types of scorpions, but they all have a few characteristics in common. They’re arachnids, like spiders, which means they have eight legs. They also have super-noticeable tails, ending in stingers that you don’t want to touch. The smallest scorpions are usually about half an inch long, but they can get even bigger. Some of the biggest species of scorpions clock in at over eight inches long. The desert hairy scorpion, for instance, is typically 7 inches in length. Usually, though, the scorpions you’ll see in and around your house are just about two inches. They’re colored in a range, from yellow all the way to black. Arizona bark scorpions, for instance, tend to be a light brown color. No matter what the coloring, all of them like to hide in the dark.
Dealing with Scorpions
If you want to take care of your scorpion problems, there are several helpful tips and tricks to keep them out of your home. Clear the area around your house of shrubbery and woodpiles, so that there’s no shelter for them that backs upright against your home. Plug up any cracks, or re-seal any entry points to make sure that nothing’s going to creep into your home.
