Organic Scorpion Control With Safer® Brand Products

Scorpions aren't quite deserving of their fearful reputation, but their stings can cause significant discomfort, particularly among people who are allergic to their venom. Many people want to control these pests but are worried about the effect traditional chemical pesticides can have on their family, pets and lawn. Luckily, there are a number of organic scorpion control methods available that can be used around trees, shrubs, vegetables, fruits and houseplants.


 

About Scorpions

There are over 2,000 species of scorpion known to exist on every continent except Antarctica. Every species is venomous; however, within the continental United States, most are not seriously harmful to humans. There is one significant exception to this rule — the Arizona bark scorpion, which is found throughout the Sonoran desert, can cause serious injury, including severe pain, convulsions and difficulty breathing. Thousands of people are stung by the bark scorpion each year, although since 1968 the state of Arizona has recorded only two fatalities.

 

Scorpion Management

While a scorpion bite isn't likely to be fatal, it can be painful enough that effective scorpion management is necessary, particularly in the Southwest where the insects are most prevalent. Luckily, there are a few steps homeowners can take to organically control scorpions in the home:

  • Remove places where the scorpion can hide. This includes trash piles, firewood and other cool, shady places.
  • Seal cracks in your home's masonry and caulk door and window openings.
  • Dust and vacuum your home regularly, being sure to clean corners not normally disturbed.
  • Eliminate common sources of food, including crickets, spiders and other small insects.
