Gilbert’s Handy Scorpion Prevention Guide

For people in many parts of the country, a scorpion is a pest found in scary movies about mummies. But as an Arizona resident, you know these pests are a pretty common sight. In fact, Arizona is home to more than half of the scorpion species in the US, and here in Gilbert, we can find scorpions inside and outside many different areas.

Scorpions are aggressive

Scorpions are aggressive hunters, and they will go anywhere in search of their prey, including your home, if you don’t take the proper steps to prevent them. Here are some things you can do to prevent scorpions around your home:

  • Clutter: Remove excess clutter in your home and yard.
  • Moisture: Eliminate moisture sources by fixing leaky pipes, hoses, and water fixtures.
  • Cracks: Seal any cracks and crevices around your home’s exterior.
  • Windows: Make sure all windows have screens that fit correctly.
  • Debris: Keep organic material like mulch, leaves, and other landscape debris away from your home.
