Cricket & Scorpion Pest Control in Phoenix
While hosting a bevy of cheerful chirping crickets in your yard may not seem all that bothersome, the truth is that when cricket infestations take place, scorpion infestations soon follow. Scorpions are natural predators of crickets, so it stands to reason that they’ll hunt for any hoppers making their way into your home. With the onset of Arizona’s sunny season comes a regular influx of pest infestations throughout Phoenix. When crickets and scorpions try to lay claim on your home, don’t put up with it: Call the extermination experts at IPM Intelligent Pest Management. Led by expert entomologists, our team has a special understanding of how these pests live and operate. We pride ourselves on providing the highest level of service in town while ensuring our clients and their pets stay safe during the extermination process. When you call us, you can expect us to respond promptly, diagnose your pest issue thoroughly, and eliminate the problem effectively. We stand behind our work, and we’ll ensure we exceed your expectations.
Signs of a Scorpion Infestation
Other than visual sightings, scorpions do not usually leave signs of infestation. They are solitary creatures by nature, but a female scorpion can give birth to 25-35 young at a time, making the population in your home quickly explode. Scorpions commonly use gaps under doors, ground level windows, cracks in the foundation, or gaps surrounding plumbing or utility pipes to enter the home. They have also been known to hitch rides on boxes, firewood, potted plants, and outdoor furniture. Once inside the home, scorpions seek out cool, quiet places to live such as under kitchen cabinets, in dark basements, or damp bathrooms. Make sure to periodically check places in which scorpions might thrive, and if any are found, utilize the effective scorpion extermination services of Intelligent Pest Management.
