Scorpion Control Services

We start by performing an Audit or Home Inspection, evaluating how severe the scorpion problem is. Then based on our over thirteen years of data we create a strategy to eliminate the scorpions as quickly as possible. Depending on the number of scorpions removed we will recommend a number of weekly sweeps to get the scorpion population down, then a maintenance program to keep the population down.

Scorpion Extermination Services

Scorpion Sweepers provides scorpion pest control to the greater Phoenix and all of Arizona. We provide two services; scorpion extermination and property wall sealing. Our scorpion pest control uses high powered ultraviolet (UV) floodlights,  where scorpions are found, collected, and removed from your property. While removing the scorpions we look for habitats that can be removed to prevent future infestations. Our detailed reporting tracks your scorpion population and shows you where all the scorpions were found.

Property Wall Sealing

We also seal exposed brick concrete block property walls that separate many lots. This is the top habitat for scorpions, by removing this habitat, scorpion numbers can be greatly reduced or exterminated. We find around 80% of the scorpions we remove on or near these walls. These walls can sustain a large population of scorpions, removing this as habitat can drastically reduce a scorpion infestation. We recommend this service for anyone who needs to control scorpions.

First, we inspect your wall to give you a proper quote. We are looking for how big the wall is, any holes that will have to be patched and if anything would inhibit us from completing the seal. The quote process usually takes around 15 minutes and can be done while you are away, we only need access to the back yard to complete the quote. After our inspection, a quote will be emailed to you within two business days. Once the quote is accepted we ask for half to all of the payment for the sealing up front. Once payment has been provided we will schedule the sealing.

The sealing happens in two stages. First, we clean the wall, spray the foam then push it deep within the cracks. After the foam cures, we proceed to the second step. In the second step, we will cut excess foam, sand all foam even with the concrete and paint the foam to blend with the wall and protect it from the harsh Arizona sun.

Once we have cleaned up and are ready to go, we will walk you through the job. You will have the chance to review the entire wall with our staff and sign off on its completion.

Our methods are based on the research conducted by the University of Arizona, which demonstrates that pesticides are an ineffective prevention method for scorpions. We combat your pest problem by population control, eliminating habitats, and customized pest prevention strategies.

We collect population and weather data at every service allowing us to determine the best times and days to perform scorpion pest control. Research into our own data has allowed us to create strategies that will quickly eliminate any scorpion infestation.

Scorpion Extermination Services

In most cases, we can schedule your Audit or Home Inspection within a week. Our technician will arrive sometime between 8 pm and 3 am, if you will be joining us we will attempt to schedule prior to midnight. We do ask that all exterior, motion and pool lights are turned off, the darker the better.

Our maintenance services allow you to sign up for weekly, bi-weekly or monthly service with discounts available when a summer’s worth of service is purchased. There are no long-term contracts, you can skip a sweep or stop service altogether whenever you’d like. We are very flexible and will work with you to find a plan that fits your specific needs best.

Property Wall Sealing

Our wall sealing happens during the day in the winter months. This service is provided when day time temperatures are below 90 degrees. Most walls are completed by a team of up to five technicians and are completed in the span of a day or two.

Our scorpion extermination service reporting is the same for Audits, Home Inspections, and Maintenance. A card will be placed on your door with the number of scorpions found immediately after the service. This card will contain the technician’s name, license number, the date, and time. Within a week of the sweep a detailed report will be emailed containing:

  • Number of each species of scorpion found
  • A map of where each scorpion was found
  • A description of where the scorpions were found
  • A graphical depiction population of scorpions
  • Recommendations to eliminate scorpion habitats

Strategy Moving Forward

Our 50-100 scorpion strategy is 8 weekly sweeps, then maintenance service in the summer.

When we find these many scorpions, our data shows it takes approximately eight consecutive weekly sweeps to get into single digits. At that point, we recommend monthly sweeps during the summer. Our maintenance service keeps the population at a manageable level, and can even eliminate the problem.

Source Of The Scorpions

We believe there are a few explanations as to the source of the scorpions. The obvious source is the large and resounding wash that surrounds the property. This property features a massive river rock feature that includes ample hiding space for scorpions. At the same time, there are overgrown bushes and trees that are creating unnecessarily habitable conditions for scorpions. Furthermore, the backyard features a large variety of overgrown vegetation that not only creates shelter but also attracts insects who become scorpion prey.

Our Recommendations

  • ‌Trim landscaping 6-8 inches above the ground and away from walls to prevent shade during the day. Cricket, cockroaches and sometimes scorpions love this habitat.
  • Remove leaf litter and other organic material from the property. This is perfect food and shelter for prey species of scorpions. Scorpions have been known to use this as a habitat as well.
  • General pest control is recommended to kill the prey species for the scorpions. We saw various other pests while sweeping your property.
  • Remove piles of wood, bricks, pavers, cinderblocks, or roof tiles from the property. These are scorpions hotels providing many cracks and crevasses that multiple scorpions can live in for years.
  • Remove fallen fruit from the property. This can attract Rats, Cockroaches, Beetles, Flies, and Ants. Many of pests fallen fruit attracts are prey for scorpions and lead to increased population.
  • Trim palm trees fonds to the trunk to remove all cracks and crevasse. Many pests especially Bark Scorpions can use this as a habitat.
  • The Oleanders on your property are providing a great habitat for scorpions and other pests. We recommend removing all of the debris out from underneath the bushes and trimming the branches a foot above the ground so they do not provide shade during the day. This evergreen has usually has multiple trunks coming from its’ base. These trunks create a bowl-like area where organic material such as leaves and flowers can get caught. This area is very difficult to blow out so it provides a great long-term habitat for pests.
  • Remove river rocks over 3 inches in diameter. These rocks provide a perfect habitat for scorpions. They allow them to fit underneath them completely, shading them from the sun.
  • Remove ivy from the walls. Scorpions and other bugs love to live on the walls behind the ivy. Thick areas of ivy can provide habitat for many scorpions and their prey.
  • There were some plant pots or planters on your property that were placed on the ground. These are great habitats for pest, The space under the pot or planter is a great habitat, there is also ample water from the watering of the plant. We recommend placing these on 4-6 inch tall stands so that air and light can go underneath.
  • We realize many of the plants and features of your property create an aesthetically sound environment, but changes are necessary to reduce scorpion numbers. We are confident that if the previously suggested tactics are followed up on, the scorpion population will reduce from week to week.

Scorpions Found in the Front Yard

There were 37 scorpions found during tonight’s sweep. Hot spots included the middle desert island in the front yard, the pillar next to the a/c unit, and the vast majority were found along the wash located to the right of the property. 25 scorpions were found either in the river rocks of the right wash, along the neighbor’s perimeter wall to the right, and the wash directly behind the middle of the backyard. Fortunately, much of these scorpions were on the opposite side of the wash in relation to your home.

Scorpions Found in the Back Yard

There were 25 scorpions found in the backyard. The majority of these scorpions found spread out throughout the backyard. Approximately 12 were found within the rear cactus garden. The remaining 13 were found truly spread out in the backyard. Scorpions were predominantly found either within bushes and plants or directly underneath leaves and other plants.

Scorpions Found Inside House

We did not sweep the inside of your home.

Other Pests Encountered

  • Crickets were heard throughout the property. Crickets are one of the top prey for scorpions. Crickets are one of the main sources of food for Scorpions, by eliminating this prey item you can reduce your scorpion population.
  • Cockroaches were seen throughout the property. Cockroaches are one of the top prey for scorpions. If you can eliminate your Cockroaches issue, this may cause scorpions to look elsewhere for food.
  • Huntsman or Giant Crab Spiders were seen on your property. This species can be very large and alarming, they are non-venomous and generally docile. This species is often confused with Brown Recluse Spiders. You can tell the difference by the size, Huntsman Spiders are much larger. Huntsman spiders can climb on walls, recluses cannot. Finally, Huntsman spiders have eight eyes while Brown Recluses have six.

Other Notes

There were no scorpions seen on our around your children’s play area or toys., As previously mentioned, we recommend taking immediate action to aid in reducing scorpions on the property. Our most suggested best practices are trimming vegetation six to eight inches above the ground, remove excess shade creating objects like stacked bricks, seal the property wall, and remove any fallen fruit or organic debris that attracts insects. We appreciate you allowing us to come to inspect your property, and thank you, for tagging along during tonight’s sweep.
