Scorpion Pest Control

If you want to permanently eliminate scorpions from your home, you need to have regular pest control maintenance in place. 

Scorpion Control is Moxie’s Specialty

Bark scorpions are part of living in the Phoenix area, but that doesn’t mean you have to let them inside your home. While they do pose a health risk to those with an allergy to their venom, most Arizona residents just see them as an unsettling nuisance. However, children and small pets can be more vulnerable to their sting, and parents and pets owners should take extra precautions to keep those more vulnerable loved ones away from scorpions.

How Moxie Removes Scorpions from Your Home

Scorpions are notoriously difficult to remove, and most control companies offer no promises to people trying to get rid of them. Moxie takes a different approach by seeking out scorpions in their hiding spaces and using specialized control methods intended specifically for scorpions. Call now and get a free consultation, and we’ll save you from the scorpion menace!

If you own sprinklers or a swimming pool, scorpions will gravitate towards these damp areas.  Scorpions can survive for a long time without water but, they need to stay near damp places to find their food sources (insects). Our trained specialists know exactly how to eliminate and remove these pest. Remember taking proactive measures is the best way to prevent these creatures from entering your property. 

Customers love Moxie – Here is what they say

Danny (our new tech) was great. He took the time to ensure that he was here, went over his service agenda and asked if any additional areas of concern needed to be addressed. This once again shows how the company (techs) take ownership of their responsibilities and ensure complete customer satisfaction.

Prevention and Protection

Our scorpion experts will tell you that it is difficult to see scorpions during the daytime, but they glow in the dark which is why when we begin to remove scorpions it often begins with finding them by using a UV light. They will glow with a green light. This makes them relatively easy to locate. Remember that the exterminator, for the benefit of everyone’s safety, should be the only one completing the scorpion removal.

Treatments to the area around your home, including your lawn, will discourage scorpions from entering your property. A regular maintenance survey will ensure the quality and effectiveness of your treatment throughout the year.

Our regular maintenance and long-term treatment are designed so that you can eliminate the thoughts of  you or your family meeting a scorpion within your property.

Common Scorpions Found in Phoenix

When you find scorpions around in the Phoenix valley, they are not necessarily all dangerous. They still do however carry the venom they need to capture your prey.  What does it feel like when you get bitten by a scorpion?  You will feel a sting that is very similar to what a bee sting would feel like.  You may get an allergic reaction that will require a doctor’s attention – seniors, or the very young, are most susceptible to unfavorable reactions.  

Being in the dessert climate, the surrounding habitat and weather makes it easy for various species of scorpions to exist.  Here are some species you will find in Arizona:

  • The Devil Scorpion (also known as the striped tail scorpion): characterized by a 3 inch long spine, they have a stripe-like appearance and love living under rocks. 
  • The yellow ground scorpion loves to roam the desert at night and will also be found under rocks and warm burrows.
  • The Arizona bark scorpion –it’s no surprise to find this type of scorpion inside a  building as it is the most common scorpion in Arizona.  Standing at 2 to 3 inches, they come out at night and can breed up to 30 scorpions at a time.  Their food sources include other small insects (e.g. crickets, cockroaches). 
  • The giant hairy scorpion can stand up to 4 inches and can eat other scorpions as well as small lizards, spiders, centipedes and other small insects.
