There are many different species of scorpions. They live in the desert, therefore somewhere like Tucson, AZ is a perfect place for them to call home. They come to light under a black light looking like something from a science fiction film. It is unknown exactly why they glow under a black light; they are the only insects that glow in this fashion. Scorpions like to literally hang out on the wall and under stucco of homes.
Some tips on how to keep the venomous creatures away from your home include clear away any and all debris and yard clippings and other things they can hide in. They also like irrigation systems and of course they feed on other insects. If you can eliminate the other insects you will cut off the scorpion’s food source.
To keep these sometimes deadly pests out of your home, making sure your home is sealed and secured is vital. Sealing any cracks and leaks, doorways and windows and of course anywhere they can creep in.
Scorpions are something to be concerned about. They can produce a deadly bite to a young child or the elderly. Scorpions were here long before humans and they will remain after, but are controllable if you use a reputable home pest control company.
