In Arizona, there are about 4 common types we see throughout the East Valley and Phoenix areas. The Bark Scorpion, Yellow Ground Scorpion, and Stripped Tail Scorpion are also called the Devil Scorpion and the Desert Hairy Scorpion. Out of the 4, only the Bark Scorpion has a venom that can be dangerous to humans. The other three types of scorpions mentioned have venom, but it's not very potent and their stings are about as painful as a honeybee sting. The Desert Hairy is the largest of scorpions and likes to Burrough under rocks/dirt areas with moisture.
The Bark Scorpion is the most worrisome of scorpions here in Arizona and the most common. This species of scorpion can accidentally find gaps and openings into homes and businesses in the East Valley and Phoenix areas of Arizona. Many communities are seeing more activity than others, due to the popular use of grass, more trees and shrubs going in creating a lot of moisture the Bark Scorpion and many scorpions love. These areas will eventually have or may now have much activity. Every community can be different in population, but remember that SCORPIONS ARE INDIGENOUS TO ARIZONA! They were here long before homes and businesses. Our pest control will keep them under excellent control and will kill them off with recurring services and following our guidelines for the best service. We know the pests you may experience and we ask you to trust in our service and our transparency of information about our services.
Bark Scorpion Behaviors
Scorpions do not seek out people, and most times accidentally land up inside your home or commercial business. They do need to find hiding places once it's daylight as they are nocturnal water retention arachnids. Scorpions will crawl where there is shade, sometimes hiding in dark areas in and around your home such as garages, under larger-sized landscape rocks, If hiding near an entry point they may land up in a gap, crack crevice, they will also hide in compost areas, areas with a lot of leaf debris, under patio furniture, under patio umbrellas bases. It's endless. Keeping a clean and maintained and manicured property will help your pest control allowing us to get to the targeted areas for scorpions to come across which is the objective of having Scorpion and General Pest Control with us.
Having a lot of construction debris such as cinder blocks or large items against block yard walls or against home/business exterior walls will create a harboring area for scorpions, as well as, other rodents and soft body insects. Leaving toys, wet pool towels, and bbq covers can leave you with a surprise scorpion hiding under them during the day. Open Doggy doors left open after dust or not properly sealed, along with gaps and cracks 1/16th of an inch or larger are where scorpions and other pests may enter if they crawl near these areas. Keeping your home or business properly maintained will allow for a thorough pest control service every time. We will always alert you to areas of concern to assist with our excellent and thorough pest control.

What Our Clients says
Our service combines the most advanced technology and methods available today.
This place has always been amazing!!! The first time we got them was last year for scorpions. Unfortunately around October I had to cancel but definitely regretted cancelling because the bugs were all coming back including scorpions. Called them and they came within an hour and thoroughly sprayed inside and out. What I appreciate about this place is that they are very knowledgeable and they don’t force you into adding anything they just let you know that there are other options if you need them.
Eric has been awesome in helping us get the scorpion problem under control! We tried different companies but still had scorpions inside our house. We have been with Scorpion King Exterminating for a year, and this is the first year that we haven’t had uninvited scorpion guests inside. (Knock on the wood! Sorry that I have to say that as I do not like scorpions!) Anyways, their service is always thorough and professional. I really appreciate that.
We have been using Scorpion King Exterminating for over a year and have been very happy with their services. We have seen no scorpions since using their service, and our neighbors have warned us of sightings on their property. We have easily reached them when we had a question or concern. Customer service is top notch. I highly recommend Scorpion King Exterminating!

Every service is a flush and kill designed to remove any pests which may have come close to your home hiding up J-trims and cracks and crevices.
