Although most scorpions in Gilbert are not poisonous, except for two species in particular, they can still be painful if stung by one and annoying, scary little pests. Regardless if scorpions are poisonous or not, they are a creature that you do not want anywhere in your household. So, here are a few things that you can do yourself in order to keep them out and away from your home and family.
1. You will want to get rid of any wood piles you may have in the garage or in your yard, as well as trash piles and landscape trimmings. They love to hide in these piles due to the moisture that is inside. Scorpions will try and find a home for themselves in anything that provides some sort of water.
2. You will want to seal and cracks that are around doors, windows, siding, and cracks around plumbing. Inspect your house for anything that may appear to be a form of an entry way for scorpions into your home and seal them properly.
3. You can go to a local pesticide store or home improvement store and purchase a residual spray that you can spray along the perimeter, interior and exterior, and potential entry points around your home. You can also add an extra precaution by laying down an insecticide dust in your attic, which is also another entry point for scorpions. This dust is also good to apply to any cracks that you may have. Placing the dust in window frames is also recommended.
While taking these precautions to keep scorpions out of and away from your home, it is also important to know that scorpions live by eating other insects, so you may want to routinely spray your home for all insects, keep all those nasty and annoying pests away, will help keep the scary pests away as well.
