Scorpion Pest Control
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.
Some of the scorpions we collect and remove from your property are then sent to the The University of Arizona Department of Entomology or other Universities or Labs. There behavioral and venom research studies are conducted on the specimens giving their lives a purpose.
University of Arizona professors states “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.
