Scorpion Control Tucson AZ

Scorpion Control Nogales, Rio Rico & Surrounding Areas

Scorpions are a fact of life when living in Arizona and a scorpion sting can not only be very painful, but quite traumatic, particularly for young children.

Arizona has over 30 species of scorpions, however, of those, the two most commonly found in Tucson and surrounding area are the Bark Scorpion and the Desert Hairy Scorpion. Unfortunately, both are venomous, but one species is of particular concern: the Bark Scorpion.

The venom of a Bark Scorpion is considered to be among the most dangerous of all scorpions found in the U.S. Many people have also reported that the sting from an Arizona Bark Scorpion is extremely painful, despite its diminutive size. Young children and the elderly are particularly at risk.

Some common symptoms resulting from a Bark scorpion sting can include:

  • Swelling of the area stung
  • Numbness
  • Frothing at the mouth
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Convulsions

Although rare, death is sometimes possible.

The Bark Scorpion is small (usually 2-3 inches in length) and has a light brown color that makes it difficult to see because it blends in well with the neutral/earthtone colors typically found in and around Arizona homes.

One of the most importing things to do to control a scorpion infestation is to reduce their food sources. That’s why we treat with liquids, aerosols, dusts and baits to reduce and eliminate the population of other insects that are the food source to scorpions.

We also recommend a monthly scorpion control service to be proactive and prevent any future infestations.
