Spire Pest Control’s Scorpion Exterminator Service

Scorpions are arachnids, not insects, meaning they are closely related to spiders and ticks. These nocturnal pests primarily feed on small spiders, crickets and cockroaches, and will enter your home to take shelter in cool, dark places. Scorpions are commonly thought to be poisonous, and although some species are, most of the Scorpions in the U.S. are not poisonous. They will sting when threatened, similar to a wasp. It’s better to assume that they are poisonous just to be safe. If you have scorpions in your home,Spire Pest control is here to help exterminate them.

Signs of a Scorpion Infestation

You might already know you have a scorpion problem, but here  is what a scorpion exterminator looks for in your area.

Sightings

Seeing a scorpion is the only real sign of them. Because they’re nearly blind and very careful, they like to hide in cracks and crevices. They are found homes very infrequently and usually by mistake.

Things You Need to Know About Scorpions

  • Scorpions have two pinchers extending off the front of their bodies. They use these to trap and eat prey. 
  • They have eight legs, much like a spider
  • They have a stinger coming off a long curved metasoma or “tail” which immobilizes their victims. 
  • While large scorpions with big, intimidating claws may look scary, these are usually the least dangerous kinds. They may hold a lot of venom, but they typically don’t release enough to seriously harm humans. 
  • Small baby scorpions are the ones of which to be wary of. Because they are inexperienced; these tiny creatures don’t have as much control over how much venom they release, so they often release too much.
  •  If you’re stung and cold compresses and ibuprofen aren’t relieving the pain well enough, contact a doctor. 

Helpful Scorpion Prevention Tips:

  • Seal common entry points.
  • Keep the yard tidy by keeping mulch away from the home. Scorpions like to hide in heavy mulch.
  • Reduce moisture in and around the home.
  • Reduce food sources – scorpions eat other bugs, so getting rid of pests around the home will help control scorpions, too.

Why do scorpions have pincers?

Pincers originally evolved to help trap and push food toward the mouth. Eventually, they became excellent traps and weapons scorpions use today. While that creepy-looking appearance may be gross, it also makes the scorpion an extremely effective hunter and really good at self-defense.

Interestingly enough, those pincers aren’t actually legs. They are a pair of structures called pedipalps, which they use to capture prey, defend against predators, and to push food toward the mouth.

Scorpions are some of the first animals that started walking on land full-time. According to the fossil record, scorpions first appeared about 400 million years ago, long before the dinosaurs.
