It’s raining outside – should I cancel my pest control?
First, you have to think like a Scorpion or other pest.
When there is rain, many people think pest control treatments will be washed up with the rain, so they reschedule for another day.
The truth is No – Keep in mind it’s usually dry around the windows, door frames, and cracks where we spray. You will need something there. Scorpions and other pests come out from the ground when it rains and the first place they head is to higher dryer areas – like your door ways and areas that stay dry. Also, rain can soften the soil, which helps to draw insects out and that is why we use GRANUALS around the home, in shrubs, grasses when it rains. The granular activates with moisture and continually gives control. Scorpions and pests will come out more with the rain, and you will be needing something there to control them.
