A scorpion in your home is an unwelcome sight. These arachnids travel in packs, so five or six scorpions may be hidden from everyone that you see. It can be very unsettling when you come face to face with a scorpion, but the vast majority of the time, scorpions have little interest in humans and will only strike if they are startled.

When scorpions lurk inside a house or garage, it's likely because they are searching for easily accessible food sources, a warm location to sleep at night, or a place to hide from the weather. Because scorpions are hard to control, you should get in touch with Gold Star - Del Rio for quality Del Rio pest control as soon as you notice any signs of an infestation.

Why Scorpions Invade Del Rio Properties

Scorpions can fast for months but can die from dehydration, so they always need access to water. Scorpions love standing water and leaking hoses and will enter your home for access to the water found in restrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. When temperatures soar, they seek a cool, shady area, which your home readily provides.

Both venomous and non-venomous scorpions also devour insects, so if you have roaches, termites, spiders, or beetles in your home, you're providing scorpions with a reliable food source. Since scorpions are often a sign of a secondary pest infestation, you may need professional pest control to eradicate both scorpions and the pests they feed on.

How Bad Is It To Have Scorpions In My Yard?

Scorpions in Texas are venomous. Children and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to a scorpion's sting. A scorpion sting causes irritation, numbness, and pain, and in severe cases, breathing problems and vomiting may occur.

If you have scorpions in your yard, they are likely to invade your house, too. The best way to stop them from coming in is to eliminate the bugs they eat. You can get rid of scorpions by eliminating all the other bugs that scorpions might want to eat, they won't have a reason to come into your house and will go back outside to find food. You'll also want to seal up anywhere they may used as entry points to come inside your home.

Easy & Effective Scorpion Control Tips

Keeping insects away from your yard and house is one of the most effective ways to prevent scorpions from moving in.

The following is a list of the best tips for avoiding scorpions:

  • Reducing the number of stray crumbs in your home by vacuuming, mopping, and doing the dishes frequently will help keep the pests that scorpions eat away.
  • You can prevent most pests from having easy access to food by keeping food in tightly-sealed containers and trash in out-of-the-way trash cans or receptacles.
  • Eliminating clutter is a task for both your home and yard. Both insects and scorpions are attracted to yard clutter like sticks and leaves. Additionally, reducing the number of possible hiding places in your house can make it unappealing for most pests.
  • Most insects, as well as scorpions, like dark, damp settings, which your home's leaking plumbing and high humidity levels promote.
  • Cracks, fissures, and torn screens can allow insects and scorpions to enter your home. Caulking crevices, windowsills, and outside doors help reduce pest entry.

These tips may be beneficial, but there is no alternative to professional pest control. Contact Gold Star Exterminators - Del Rio for trustworthy scorpion control advice or support.
