Scorpions are plentiful in Arizona, and as a homeowner in the region, you must always take caution to ensure these insects do not invade your premises. Nonetheless, it is never easy to discover their presence as they are good at hiding especially during the day. This is caused by the fact that they quickly lose their body moisture under hot temperatures and will always seek refuge in dark, moist places. It is why even in their natural habitats they are mainly found under rocks, large trees, caves, and bushes. As such when they are out hunting, and the sun comes up, they will look for the most suitable place to hide, and that could be your home.
It is not only the hot temperatures that might push scorpions to get to your home, but they equally desire warm places during the colder seasons when they are less active. The nocturnal arthropods will, therefore, find great comforts if they can find a hidden spot in a house where they will stay until it is favorable for them to be active again. Once they find an area where they are undisturbed scorpions will also seek out mates, and before long they will have created a colony.
The sight of baby scorpions in your home must therefore never be ignored as it points to the reality that there are probably more of them hidden. On average, it is harder to spot baby scorpions than it is to discover the adults given their light color and small sizes. Still, this does not rule out the fact that finding one or two baby scorpions has always led to the discovery of larger ones as they never go long distances while they are still small. To avoid taking chances with the safety of your loved ones, professional scorpion pest control is the most suitable way to keep everyone out of the danger of getting stung.
Unlike popular conceptions, baby scorpions are not more venomous than adults but present the same level of risks. The risk of getting stung is only slightly higher because it can be hard to notice them, but at the same time, they tend to hide as well as the adults. In the event that you see them during the day, there could be a larger infestation, and they are probably looking for food. A home that has lots of other bugs such as an underlying spider infestation is always a prime spot as they find great ease in hunting for food.
Ignoring the presence of baby scorpions in a home is essentially accepting to live with the gross insects and waiting for disaster to strike. Since a pregnant scorpion can have as many as 39 babies, it essentially means that your house will become a playground to these insects for as long as they will find food and shelter. However, professional pest control services ensure that you never have to worry about these arthropods that are never easy to get rid of using conventional techniques. A foolproof treatment strategy will be implemented that will kill and drive all the insects away making your home safe again.
