THE QUESTION: TO STOP PEST CONTROL OR KEEP IT OVER THE WINTER SEASON HERE IN ARIZONA?
A very common myth is that scorpions just suddenly go away during the winter here in Arizona. Not true! Scorpions are indigenous to our Arizona territory – this is where they live.
What is true is they like to go into hibernation in the winter where it is warm, and usually the warm place is your home. Scorpions feel for warmth just as they feel for coolness, warmth and moisture depending on the season. Scorpions are great crawlers. They can crawl on the exterior of your home and crawl into your attic vents, or make their way into your home and find a warm dark spot in any crevice, behind furniture, shoes, unsealed baseboards in your home. They only need 1/16 of an inch to make their way in.
”Help the scorpions are falling on me from the vent” or “Scorpions are in my upstairs bathroom”. Yes, every spring we hear it mostly with those who had no pest control. The question of should I stop pest control here in Arizona for the winter or not begins to surface. We recommend no. Stay consistent you will be more at ease when they become more active. Decreasing the amount of scorpions is what Scorpion Controls all about.
Scorpions can go without water and food during the winter for couple of months. As soon as they feel the ambient temperature begins to get hot in the attic or where ever they are hibernating.
When your house gets cool from the air conditioning they will make their way around your home. When the time comes to put on your air conditioning the scorpions that may be in your attic, hibernating in your baseboards or behind furniture will seek the and look to make their way out of hibernation. This is why you hear of people saying the scorpion fell from the vent, or they found them upstairs baths or hallways. It does happen and that is why we suggest keeping that continuous barrier up through the winter. At least they will come in contact with the product, and once they do get into your attic or crawl through a crack or crevice into your home for the winter they will die where they land up hibernating.
**Ask about our seasonal attic fogging for a quick knock down effect.**
Why is a little more trying to kill a scorpion than another pest?
Because of the exoskeleton of the scorpion is much like a thick and hard waxy shell, and it takes a little longer for the products to penetrate the layers, and get into their spherical holes (lungs) located on the bottom surface of their bodies; unlike other pests they do not go through a grooming and ingest it. It can take a scorpion 4 to 16 hours to die once they sit on the dried risidual we placed.
