A problem unique to most western and southwestern states is scorpion infestations in homes and businesses. An infestation of any kind is cause for concern, but scorpions in particular can be a safety hazard for anyone in close quarters with them. Texas is home to a variety of scorpions; and both residents and commercial businesses call our pest control company needing relief from their home invasion. We’re sharing everything you need to know about scorpion infestations.
Treating Scorpion Stings
Scorpion stings are painful, especially when you’re unsuspectingly sitting in the comfort of your own home. Some scorpion stings are harmless while other stings can be fatal. Given the variety of scorpions in the Dallas area, it’s hard to know immediately if the scorpion you’ve been stung by is a killer. When doing scorpion extermination, we take these stings seriously and go to a doctor for treatment. Stings can be particularly dangerous for small children and the elderly, which is why we recommend taking care of the sting and the infestation immediately.
Scorpion Infestations in Your Home
Infestations for various creatures all look different. Ant infestations may result in hundreds of ants leisurely crawling around your kitchen while a bee infestation involves a hive being built on the side of your deck. A scorpion infestation won’t necessarily be noticed at first. Scorpions don’t march inside or swarm around the kitchen table. However, they do like to hide in hard-to-find places.
Scorpions come into your home mostly looking for food. Since insects are their main diet, you may need to be concerned about other pests such as termites infesting your home. If you suspect this may be the case, then termite pest control would be a good option to eliminate the cause of scorpions coming inside your home.
Permanently getting rid of scorpions is difficult as these pests are persistent. Many home and business owners often try home remedies to deter these creatures with little to no avail. Hiring a company that can specifically treat the problem is the best way to get rid of it before it hurts someone in your home. A Dallas pest control company can discuss with you safe pesticides to use inside and outside of your home.
