Tucson Scorpion Exterminator
Are you fed up with scorpions in and around your home and live in the Greater Tucson Area? Good news – we can help!
While there are more than 30 species of scorpions found in Arizona, the one that is most commonly in and around homes in Tucson is the Arizona Bark Scorpion. These are small, brown scorpions that are among the few types of scorpions that can climb. They are the most venomous scorpion in North American and usually stings cause severe pain. While not usually deadly unless they cause an allergic reaction, they are extremely painful while causing numbness and tingling in the area of the sting. The effects and pain can last up to 72 hours in some cases.
The reason we see scorpions in our homes is that they are usually trying to avoid the heat of the desert. The anatomy of a bark scorpion allows them to flatten themselves to fit through nearly any crevice and as a natural climber they can find their way pretty much anywhere in your home. Standard precautions include ensuring weather-stripping and seals are solid around doors and windows and clutter around the home is eliminated. Additionally, scorpions are solitary hunters and will find the bugs in your home that you don’t even see. Scorpions are notoriously difficult to get rid of because they don’t live in colonies or have homes.
