Upon an initial inspection, Terminix pest control specialists will look for areas where scorpions may hide ranging from children's sandboxes, landscaping gravel and piles of debris to darker, ground-level corners of your home – such as the garage or basement. We'll check for areas that may attract scorpions or points of entry where they may be getting in.

Following their initial inspection, your Terminix professional will work with you to prescribe a scorpion treatment plan to help get rid of them. Our team makes use of integrated pest management solutions, combining a variety of scorpion treatment methods tailored to the specific layout of your home, unique features, and the complexity of the infestation itself.

After an initial course of treatment, you can schedule routine inspections with your Terminix pest control specialist to be sure a proper barrier is maintained between you, your home, and any would-be scorpion invaders.

We know scorpions

  • Scorpions are found throughout the southern United States from coast to coast.

  • Only one species found in the United States could be considered dangerous and is found in the extreme southwest in Arizona and southern California

  • To reduce scorpions around a home, eliminate as many piles of items or debris on the ground and keep dense vegetation to a minimum.

  • All scorpions glow green under black light, so a portable black light can be used outside at night to find where scorpions are harboring.

Pest control for scorpion infestations

Typically found throughout the southern half of the U.S. in warmer climates, these arachnids move fast, are capable of defending themselves with a stinger on the end of their tail, and can be poisonous depending on the species of scorpion.

At the very least, you and your loved ones can experience a painful sting. At worst, their venom can prompt an allergic reaction. With this in mind, it is not advised to attempt scorpion removal without the aid of a qualified professional.

That's where Terminix comes in. Your local Terminix pest control specialists are well-versed in scorpion removal and treatment. We'll work with you to tame a scorpion infestation and keep these pinching pests at bay.
