Scorpion Control in El Paso

The El Paso desert is full of prairie dogs, cacti, and yes, pests. Some days, we can’t simply walk outside without seeing one. Spiders, ants, mosquitoes, scorpions, and roaches–all worthy candidates to make your head spin. Scorpions are some of the most common pests El Pasoans deal with. That being said, it’s not surprising that we get calls to have these pests taken care of. If you think you have a scorpion infestation, we can help.

Identifying Scorpions

Scorpions can be some of the worst pests to have. They’re mean, stealthy, and can pack a powerful punch with their stingers. Here in the desert, we’re lucky because while a scorpion sting is painful, the majority of the scorpions here are not venomous. Usually, after you’re stung, you’ll experience pain and redness at the site. Some people experience headaches, nausea, and dizziness as well. Someone who is stung should be closely monitored to ensure they don’t have an allergic reaction. If a pet or baby has been stung, they should receive medical attention right away.

You can recognize scorpions by their stingers and pincers. They also always look like they’re on the defensive, standing on their front few legs and aiming their stingers your way. If you frequently see scorpions in your home, you may have an infestation. To keep them away, don’t leave stray garbage, wood, or large rocks out in your yard. These provide them ample space to hide, especially during the summer when the sun is really hot. Proactive scorpion control can help take care of any infestations you may have.

Scorpion Control

Here at Brants Pest Control, we use a regular indoor spray and an outdoor power spray to take care of scorpions. We use less when we spray indoors, and the power spray allows us to cover more ground outdoors. This way, we stop pests before they even come into your home. Our spray is safe for children, pets, and plants when it’s dry, meaning it kills bugs without any harmful side effects. We can also set up traps, which will help catch scorpions when they sneak their way into your home.

Scorpions are painful and vicious, and allergic reactions can even make them deadly. As a pest control company, we care about getting rid of these critters, while keeping your home clean and safe. We offer student and military discounts so you can have your home free of pests at an affordable price. If you have a scorpion problem, contact us today.
