What is scorpion control St George?
Scorpion Control St George by Nielson Pest Solutions refers to our specific methods of treatment that keep scorpions out of and away from your home.
What are scorpions?
Scorpions are a branch of the arachnid family. Arachnids are different from insects in that they generally have 2 body sections instead of three, and they have eight segmented legs instead of six. Most arachnids are carnivorous, and while they vary greatly from species to species in size, shape, and habit, all of them look just a little bit alien. Scorpions are defined by their eight legs, two pincers (called pedipalps), and a strong tail tipped with a venomous stinger.
Do Scorpions Cause Harm?
Scorpions are not particularly aggressive if left alone, and will rarely attack people or animals without provocation. They are opportunity hunters, like spiders, but instead of spinning a web the scorpion picks a likely spot and waits for an insect or other arachnid to get close enough to grab with their pincers. They use their pincers and stinger to immobilize their prey and then eat it. Still, any scorpion that isn’t a pet shouldn’t be in your home. If you see a scorpion on your property call Nielson Pest Solutions. We will send a professional in scorpion control St George to remove the problem for you and properly treat the area so that they don’t come back.
Are scorpions pests?
Scorpions are pests in a similar way that spiders are. They eat other pests, but their presence is often unnerving because they do have the potential to cause harm, even if most of the time it is pretty minimal. There are a couple of scorpions species in Southern Utah, that are considered more troublesome or dangerous than others. These are the bark scorpion and the giant hairy desert scorpion. If you see either of these or any other type of scorpion, call the scorpion control St George experts at Nielson Pest Solutions. We can take care of them so that you don’t have to.
The Bark Scorpion
While the bark scorpion is small, only 2-3 inches long they are considered the most dangerous scorpion in Utah. These little guys have a powerful venom in their stinger which can cause intense pain and lingering numbness and tingling in humans. The sting of the bark scorpion can cause a temporary loss of function and convulsions in the injured limb, and these symptoms can last anywhere from 1 to 3 days. These stings are rarely fatal but those with weaker bodies such as young children and the elderly may suffer worse effects from the venom.
It is always safer to have a professional scorpion control St George service handle the removal of a bark scorpion. Bark scorpions are identifiable by their small size, slender bodies, thin pincers, and light brown or yellow coloring. They are the only type of scorpion in Southern Utah that actively climbs surfaces like walls, trees, and even the ceiling. Bark scorpions get their name from their tendency to hide during the day under the bark of trees or old logs. They also like to spend their time in basements and other cool, areas of the home that provide sufficient moisture.
The Giant Desert Hairy Scorpion
The giant desert hair scorpion gets their name from their size and the hair-like bristles that they have on their bodies called setae. These scorpions are large, between 4-6 inches long as adults, and can be frightening to come across, especially if that meeting happens in your home. These hairy giants are tan or light brown, so even though they are big they can blend in pretty well with their environment. Probably the most disturbing habit of these scorpions is that the mother carries her babies on her back until their first molting.

Do you have scorpions in your home? Call Scorpion Control St George.
Scorpions are predators. They eat other arachnids, insects, and even rodents on occasion in order to survive. If you have a recurring scorpion presence in your home or on your property that is a good indication that you may have other pests that you haven’t seen yet. Arachnids only go where they have sufficient food and water to survive. This means that the presence of them in your home or on your property is because they feel like they can find food there.
If you don’t want scorpions in your home the best thing to do is make sure that you don’t have any leaking pipes which add extra moisture to the home, and call Nielson Pest Solutions. Our scorpion control St George services will naturally remove and keep away the other pests that are drawing the scorpions to your property.
Arachnids are not dangerous to your property or house. They generally do not carry diseases or parasites, and, for the most part, are more interested in eating pests than they are in you. However, there are some arachnids that are dangerous, and quite a few that can cause minimal harm if threatened. One of the benefits of using scorpion control St George services is that if they aren’t on your property, you don’t have to worry about them.

No matter the breed, a scorpion’s pincers will hurt if they pinch you, and their tails will give you a painful sting. These critters like to hide in dark areas and can be anywhere from under the sink to inside your shoe. This is why cowboys in the old days always had the habit of shaking their shoes out in the morning. If you run into a scorpion it is likely in a place where you won’t expect it, and getting close enough to identify it could put you or someone else at risk. Scorpions rarely go out of their way to attack humans, but they can become aggressive if they feel threatened.
