How Do I Get Rid of
Most people we speak with agree, scorpions are scary, there’s nothing like a scorpion sighting in your home to ratchet up the tension level to a category 5. These 6 legged armored invaders with their ominous pincers and a poison stinger claw on the end of its arched tail seem more like an alien monster from another dimension, rather than any inhabitant of earth and for thousands of years, mankind has avoided them. From the Arachnida family, scorpions are closely related to spiders, mites and ticks. Since the average lifespan of a scorpion range from 3 to 5 years and a mother produces an average of 30 living young per brood, you really need to make haste with a scorpion removal agenda sooner rather than later or you can have a real infestation on your hands.

Scorpions are Nocturnal Predators.
Scorpions are nocturnal and spend all day in hiding under a rock or logs or in crack in the concrete. Some species will dig and hide in burrows. At night these nocturnal hunters emerge hungry for spiders, insects and other small invertebrates but their diet can be extremely variable. Amazingly, when they encounter extreme food shortage, they can put themselves in a semi-suspended animation state, slowing down their metabolism by two thirds. This survival tool allows some species of scorpions to survive eating just a few flies per year. While day time temperatures soar, scorpions seek out a cool, dark hide out, like a rock or wood pile or beneath the bark of some trees. We often hear about scorpions hiding in the attic or inside the walls of our customer’s homes.

Scorpions and Human Sprawl.
Although scorpions are most famously found in the high deserts of the southwest, the human sprawl continues to push us ever closer to their natural home in the mountains, mesas and buttes; we are displacing them out of their normal environment. This is a big reason we hear so often from home owners adjacent to a new construction site, the build out has displaced the scorpions, so naturally, they want to come over to your place. Scorpions know that ditches, canals and steams will attract their prey; therefore they are attracted into these new urban areas to hunt near such water sources.

Scorp Away cedar oil active ingredient formula, a natural scorpion control agent, interferes with their octopamine neuro receptors and impairs an insect's instinctual ability to detect food, mate, and reproduce. When insects' comfort levels are disturbed, they become disoriented and overwhelmed. To escape the discomfort, they relocate into areas of concentration where sight-driven predators such as birds, lizards, and beneficial insects control the infestation. Regular, continued use of this product will create a barrier of re-entry to treated areas, resulting in a scorpion and insect-free environment.
