It is no secret that one of the most feared pests in Arizona are scorpions as everyone is always worried about being stung by the unwanted guests. These arthropods are desert wanderers that are always moving in search of food, shelter, and mates which often lead them to residential areas. A lot of neighborhoods in Arizona are ever at high risk of attacks from scorpions given their proximity to their natural habitats. This calls for constant surveillance and proactive measures to ensure these high-risk pests are nowhere close to your yards, or at worst get into your home.
Largely, most people fear all scorpions regardless of the species despite the fact that most of them are not venomous. In Arizona, this fear is created by the fact that the Arizona bark scorpion which is the most venomous species in the United States is found in the region. Since it is never easy to instantly recognize the species at your home, it is the horrors of getting stung by this species that makes everyone fearful. This is because all the species have broadly similar characteristics, and it takes the keen eye of a professional to tell them apart easily.
The defining characteristics of the Arizona bark scorpion are that unlike other species they largely keep their tails down curled up and never up above their backs while resting. They also love to climb walls, trees, and fences where they position themselves upside down. Similar to other scorpions, this species is nocturnal and will mostly go out to hunt at night always minimizing their movements during the day. They also love to feed on crickets which is why the yard must be among the primary areas where one looks to when seeking to eliminate them.
Since as a homeowner, it is never easy to know the most effective ways of getting rid of these home invaders, Responsible Pest Control are ever to the rescue for all Arizona residents. Years of studying the behavior of the venomous scorpion which is never to be confused with the striped bark scorpion allow them always to keep premises safe. A comprehensive treatment procedure is consistently implemented by the specialists with the focus being to ensure not a single scorpion remain hidden within a home. The level of treatment required is always dependent on the extent of infestation which the professionals will analyze during their first visit.
A top of the line pest extermination company will not focus on treatment methods that will only kill the scorpions that are within reach but in long-term pest control measures that will be effective for an extended period. This is because scorpions, unlike most other pests, are never affected by dried pesticides and specialized products are required to continue killing the scorpions on contact.

Scorpions largely feed on other insects and a comprehensive pest elimination strategy that will keep the home free from other insects such as roaches and spiders will reduce chances of future invasions.
