What can I do other than hire a pest control company to get rid of scorpions?
In this series I’ll give you several pointers on what you, the homeowner, can do, to keep scorpions out of and away from your home.
Scorpions in the Trees?!
Scorpions can play a huge part in scorpion issues in and around your home. After all, they aren’t called Bark scorpions because they go “WOOF”.
What types of trees do they like?
- All kinds of Palm trees
These types of trees mimic the areas that scorpions like best in the wild.
Scorpion Expert Bill Stewart said; “Scorpions live in the desert and are very well adapted to the hot, dry conditions here. But they, like the rest of us, prefer cool moist areas, which is why, in the wild, they are attracted to riparian areas around washes. creeks and rivers. When we create these types of areas in our yards, we are inviting them onto our property.”
I’ve noticed over the years of treating for scorpions that they seem to really like the nooks of Palm bark. That’s why I pay close attention to those areas around palm trees when treating.
They also find Cottonwoods, Sycamores, and Mesquites in their favorite places in the wild. These are very common in our yards too. Trees touching or hanging over your home can provide a shortcut into your home, Especially through the exhaust fans in your bathrooms and laundry room.
It almost always causes a huge reduction in the amount of scorpions getting into a home when trees are trimmed away from the house!
Next time I’ll start to give you some of the tricks of the trade where it applies to scorpion control in and around your home!
