Frequently Asked Questions About Scorpions

What are scorpions?

Scorpions are predatory arachnids commonly seen in warm, arid areas and desert climates. There are many different types of scorpions around the United States, but the species most common in our area is the striped bark scorpion.

Scorpions can be identified by their eight legs, a set of large pincers at the front of their body, and a segmented tail at the back of their body that possesses a barbed stinging tip. Professional scorpion control is necessary to combat these pests when they infest and to protect you from accidental stings.

Are scorpions dangerous?

While scorpion stings from all species of this pest might be painful, most scorpions don’t possess a life-threatening amount of venom. That being said, scorpion stings received by the elderly, those with compromised immune systems, or young children can have serious consequences. Symptoms of scorpion stings include muscle twitching, nausea or vomiting, headache, and high blood pressure. Serious symptoms that require immediate medical attention include severe pain, difficulty breathing, and difficulty swallowing.

To avoid the dangers that scorpions bring to your property, contact Gold Star Exterminators to help with scorpion control the moment this pest appears.

Why do I have a scorpion problem?

Scorpions typically flock to properties in search of cool, dark spaces to hide, pest prey to eat, and moisture. If you have lots of cluttered and overgrown areas outdoors, crevices and gaps around your property, pest prey infestations such as an infestation of spiders, and moisture problems, you are likely to deal with a scorpion infestation.

Where will I find scorpions?

Scorpions are typically found hiding in dark and cool areas during the day, emerging at night to catch prey. Outdoors, you will find scorpions hiding in piles of brush or debris, around woodpiles, or in the cracks of your property’s foundation. If scorpions get inside your property, they will be seen hiding around storage boxes, in the back of closets, or around basements.
