Scorpion Pest Control
A Scottsdale Mother Describes Her Success With Scorpion Sweepers
Scorpion Sweepers is a completely different Pest Control Company. Instead of spraying with toxic chemicals we offer Organic, Natural, Pesticide Free Scorpion Pest Control by hand removing scorpions from your property. Our services are performed at night while scorpions are active, not during the day when they are hidden in their habitats. Using high powered Ultra Violet flood lights scorpions are found even in the darkest places.
Scorpion Sweepers will find the cause or causes of your scorpion infestation and work with you to solve your problem. Our technicians hand collect active scorpions while combing your external property looking for habitats and other factors that may contribute pests presence. We take a scientific approach to holistically eliminate the population instead of the band aid approach of pesticide use.
The scorpions we collect and remove from your property are then sent to the The University of Arizona Department of Entomology. There behavioral and venom research studies are conducted on the specimens giving their lives a purpose.
University of Arizona professors state “Insecticides are ineffective” at controlling scorpions. Concluding collection using Ultra Violet light a far better pest control method.
According to the University of Arizona VIPER (Venom Immunochemistry, Pharmacology and Emergency Response) Institute, nearly 8,000 scorpion stings are reported each year in Arizona.
Scorpion Sweepers services the greater Phoenix Valley, and is located in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Scorpions In Phoenix Arizona
In a 2-year study entitled, “Influences of urban land use on the frequency of scorpion stings in the Phoenix, Arizona, metropolitan area” published in the journal Landscape and Urban Planning in 1999, Professor Nancy McIntyre of the Central-Arizona Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research (CAP-LTER) at Arizona State University mapped the locations of approximately 7,000 reported scorpion stings by zip code. Dr. McIntyre produced the map below, which indicates the zip codes with the greatest number of stings (dark red) and fewer stings (pink).
We have begun research to improve our understanding of scorpion distributions in Phoenix today. Specifically, we are recording the locations of our customers and documenting the number of scorpions collected and the timing of scorpion activity to provide insight into potential scorpion ‘hot spots’ in Phoenix. We intend to map and publish these data as soon as possible to improve public awareness, so check our research page regularly for updates.
