Understanding Scorpions

Introduction to Scorpion Inspection

Welcome to Scorpion Guard Pest Control, your leading ally against scorpions in the greater Phoenix area. From the heart of our operations to your home, we bring a wealth of knowledge and an arsenal of solutions to combat these arachnids. Scorpion inspection is much more than a cursory glance–it’s a specialized service we’re proud to offer, designed to root out and address the scorpion problem at its core. Let’s dive into what makes our scorpion inspection process stand apart.

Understanding Scorpions

Scorpions, often seen as mere nuisances, pose a significant risk to households and businesses alike. These creatures not only bring about an unsettling presence but can also inflict painful stings, with some species being potentially dangerous. Our first step in combating them is understanding their behavior and habitats. Scorpions are nocturnal, seeking refuge from the heat of the day and becoming active hunters at night.

Why Inspection is Crucial

Scorpion inspection is a critical first step to ensuring your home or business is scorpion-free. It allows us to identify not only the presence of scorpions but also potential entry points and habitats within your property. An effective scorpion inspection paves the way for targeted treatment strategies, reducing the possibility of future infestations.

Conducting Scorpion Inspection


Preparation is key to a successful scorpion inspection. Our team equips themselves with protective clothing and the latest tools, including UV flashlights that make scorpions glow in the dark, to conduct thorough inspections. We also encourage property owners to minimize clutter to make the inspection process smoother.

Indoor Inspection

The indoors are just as vulnerable as the outdoors when it comes to scorpion invasions. We meticulously check areas such as garages, basements, closets, and any damp locations since scorpions tend to seek out moisture. During our inspection, we also educate homeowners about simple changes they can make to deter scorpions, such as reducing indoor humidity.

Outdoor Inspection

Our outdoor scorpion inspection focuses on identifying breeding grounds and entry points. Scorpions can enter homes through tiny cracks and openings, so sealing these is a priority. We inspect landscaping, debris, and exterior walls, among other areas, for signs of scorpions or their prey.

After the Inspection

Following a thorough scorpion inspection, we sit down with you to discuss our findings and recommend a course of action. This may include direct removal, habitat modification, or preventative measures to ensure your property remains scorpion-free. Our team is committed to providing eco-friendly and effective solutions tailored to your specific situation.

Prevention Tips

  • Seal cracks and crevices around your home to prevent entry.
  • Keep yards clean of debris, logs, and leaf piles where scorpions can hide.
  • Maintain a dry environment inside your home to deter scorpions seeking moisture.
  • Install door sweeps and screens to block entry points.

After the Inspection

Can you scorpion proof your house?

Absolutely, you can take significant steps to make your home less inviting to scorpions. At Scorpion Guard Pest Control, we emphasize sealing cracks and crevices around the home, maintaining a clutter-free yard, and ensuring your indoor space remains dry. These measures don’t just deter scorpions; they make your home less accessible to them. However, the truth is, making a home completely scorpion-proof requires ongoing effort. It’s more about managing and significantly reducing the risk rather than eliminating it entirely. Regular inspections and staying proactive with prevention strategies is key. Have you conducted a thorough check of your home’s exterior recently?

How do exterminators get rid of scorpions?

Our approach at Scorpion Guard Pest Control involves a combination of direct removal, habitat modification, and the application of eco-friendly treatments that target scorpions specifically. We start with a detailed inspection to identify scorpions, their entry points, and hiding spots. Sealing off these entry points and removing debris or leaf piles that serve as their habitat are crucial first steps. For the scorpions already inside, we may use specific products designed to be safe for humans and pets while effectively targeting scorpions. It’s a tailored approach, ensuring the safety of your family and the environment.

What should I do if I find a scorpion in my house?

First, try to stay calm. While it’s understandable to be concerned, remember that not all scorpions are dangerously venomous. However, avoiding direct contact is crucial. You can gently guide the scorpion onto a flat surface like a piece of cardboard and then carefully transfer it outside, away from the house. If scorpions are a common issue in your home, it may be time to call professionals like us at Scorpion Guard Pest Control. We can help you identify why scorpions are entering your home and work with you to create a safer, scorpion-free environment.

What smells do scorpions hate?

Scorpions are known to dislike strong and pungent smells. Essential oils such as lavender, cinnamon, peppermint, and citrus are reported to repel scorpions. These natural scents interfere with scorpions’ ability to navigate, making your home less attractive to them. Incorporating these scents into your home through diffusers or sprays can add an extra layer of protection. Remember, though, that using scents is more of a supplementary measure. For best results, combine this with other preventive practices like sealing entry points and keeping your home dry and clutter-free. Have you tried using any scented products in your home as a deterrent?

What is a common misconception about scorpion behavior?

One common misconception is that scorpions come into our homes primarily to seek shelter. While it’s true they’re seeking refuge, it’s essential to understand that scorpions are primarily motivated by the hunt for food and moisture. This means that if your home has issues with other pests like crickets or has areas of high moisture, you’re more likely to attract scorpions. Addressing the root causes, such as pest control and moisture management, can significantly reduce your scorpion problem. It’s about creating an environment that’s less appealing to them, not just barricading your home. Have you considered how your current pest and moisture control practices might be impacting your scorpion situation?
