Frequently Asked Questions About Scorpions

What are scorpions?

Scorpions are a type of arachnid recognizable by their eight legs, grasping pincers at the front of their body, and a segmented tail that often curves up and over their body. Depending on the species, scorpions range in color, but they are most often in light yellow, tan, and light or dark brown colors. Dangerous scorpions do exist, and they may be hard to identify without getting uncomfortably close, which is why you should trust Accurate Pest Control to remove all scorpion species from your property.

Are scorpions dangerous?

Scorpions are dangerous pests due to their venomous stings and the pain their stings can cause. While most scorpion stings are painful, they are only a major risk to individuals with preexisting conditions or the elderly and children. That said, some species of scorpions deliver painful stings with serious health consequences, such as numbness, swelling, slurred speech, and difficulty breathing. Seek medical attention if you encounter any of these symptoms.

Why do I have a scorpions problem?

Scorpions are attracted to areas with plenty of pest prey that act as food, pools of water or moist conditions, and sheltering spots. If your property has these on display, you may end up with a group of scorpions looking for a place to live.

Where will I find scorpions?

Most of the time, you'll find scorpions hiding in crevices between rocks, underneath piles of brush or debris, or in the cracks of your property's foundation. If they do invade interior areas, they will most likely be in dark, cool, and secluded locations such as storage spaces and closets.
