    Target Your Pest

    I’m dealing with a two bedroom end unit in a complex. The problem is scorpions.

    Try Something Different, and Not Just a Pesticide

    I was wondering what the best chemicals are for controlling scorpions. I have been using Demand CS for the interior and Permethrin SFR for the exterior. I do have pretty good results but not good enough for some clients.

    Many Portals?

    There is a debate going on between myself and another pest control company here in the Southwest. He claims and tells his customers that our bark scorpions come up the house drains and this is the reason they find them in sinks and tubs. My belief is they do not and cannot come up the drains from the sewers and the reason people find them in sinks is that they crawl in or fall into them. Please...

    Scorpions - Who's To Blame?

    Friends of ours own a rental property in an area with scorpions. The renter's neighbors filed a formal complaint with the homeowners' association that scorpions are "nesting" in the yard and are responsible for the complainants' problems. First, do scorpions nest? Second, as pest control operators are we legally responsible for any issues that arise from scorpion problems such as medical bills,...

    Scorpions Are Bad House Guests

    Do you have any ideas on how to keep scorpions out of a home that was recently built and has hardly any grass around the home yet, but has lots of sand? I know closing all holes and weather stripping will help a lot, but any other ideas would help.

    A Unwelcome Mat For Scorpions

    I have reviewed most of the questions and answers submitted to you on scorpions and I am on board with all the chemical and non-chemical solutions you suggest. My question is how do scorpions get into homes? I would like to attack our ever-growing problem in Las Vegas by concentrating on entry areas.

    Keeping The Sting Out

    Our company services a lot of mountain homes that tend to have a large amount of scorpion pressure due to the environment. Do you think using Talstar granules as a perimeter broadcast treatment would be effective in controlling scorpions, or do you think we should stick to targeted applications?

    Pesticides Need No Help

    In the control of scorpions there is a large regional company that guarantees elimination by the chemical means only. There is no talk of exclusion or harborage modification. They claim that a Univ. of Arizona study has given them techniques that allows them to make their claim. I know in the past you have said that by relying solely on chemical solutions the customer will be dissatified. Ple...

    Scorpions In The Sun

    If a technician goes out at night (with a blacklight) to spray for scorpions inside a structure and outside in the surrounding area, is pricing by the time he expects to take? I've read many times that treating during the day, especially summer in southern AZ, is basically a waste of time. The material used will largely evaporate due to heat and sunlight. Working at night is much slower and wou...
