Scorpions are no joke. They can cause painful stings, especially if you have young children or pets in your home. They’re also sneaky and can infest your home without you knowing. Luckily, there are a few simple steps that you can take to safely remove a scorpion from your home. Then, call Wagner Pest Solutions to get rid of them for good.
Identify the Scorpion
The first step to safely removing a scorpion from your home is to identify the species so that you know how dangerous it is. While all scorpions should be treated with caution, some species are more dangerous than others. In our state, the most common type of scorpion is the bark scorpion, which has a venomous sting that can cause severe pain and inflammation. Once you’ve identified the type of scorpion in your home, you can take the appropriate steps to safely remove it without putting yourself or your family at risk.
Remove the Scorpion
The safest way to remove a scorpion from your home is to use an insect vacuum cleaner. These vacuum cleaners are designed specifically for removing insects, like spiders and scorpions, without having to touch them directly. Simply turn on the vacuum cleaner and use its nozzle attachment to suck the scorpion into the machine’s chamber. Once it’s contained, you can dispose of it properly outside, away from your house. However, if you don’t have one of these, your next best option for safe removal is to place a glass jar or bowl over the scorpion and call us for help!
Prevent Further Infestations
Once you’ve removed the scorpion(s) from your home, it’s important to take steps to prevent further infestations from occurring. To do this, make sure all cracks and gaps around windows and doors are sealed properly. Check for openings around pipes or vents that may allow access to pests like scorpions, and seal them off. You can also use natural deterrents, such as essential oils or diatomaceous earth, around entry points, which will help repel any potential intruders before they enter your home.
