With that said, let's dig in and look at some helpful facts about the scorpions in Frisco. 

The Different Kinds Of Scorpions In Frisco

Many scorpion species are found in Frisco. These scorpions are cataloged by state agencies and entomologists. There is much we could say about these species, but there are only a few simple facts you need to know in order to guard yourself against scorpions in your yard and prevent them from entering your home.

  • The most common scorpion pest in Frisco is the striped bark scorpion. It is important to understand that our striped bark scorpions are not the same as the Arizona bark scorpion, a highly venomous scorpion that prefers arid climates. Those scorpions are found in West Texas and throughout Arizona. While striped bark scorpions have venom, it is not nearly as toxic as the venom of an Arizona bark scorpion.
  • Bark scorpions climb trees, scale exterior walls, and slip into homes through tiny gaps. They are common indoor pests and are considered the most widespread scorpion species in the United States.
  • Most scorpion species hide under rocks in our yards and rarely enter homes. Only the bark scorpion will scale your exterior walls. You can guard against a scorpion sting by wearing gloves while working on a project in your yard, or while managing your landscaping. 
  • You can guard against scorpion stings by wearing footwear in your yard, taking precautions when lifting objects, and using a black light at night to check for these pests. They glow under black light.  

There are several American scorpions, but none are quite like the bark scorpion. You'll have to take greater measures to keep these pests out of your Frisco  home or contact Adams Exterminating Company for an ongoing pest control service plan that includes the management of scorpions.

How To Remove Factors That Attract Scorpions

Do you know why scorpions want to live in your yard? It has to do with two critical factors: water and food. Scorpions go where they have the best chance of survival. Since they hide in damp locations, your landscaping may provide a perfect home for these arachnids. They may also hide in shaded spaces to protect themselves from the sun. In these locations, they'll look for food options. They feed on a variety of insects and small animals such as salamanders. Here are a few ways you can control damp habitats and reduce potential food sources.

  • Clean your gutters. When water collects in a clogged gutter, it pours over the sides and saturates the ground below. Saturated ground requires longer periods to dry. Scorpions will thrive in the dampness created by ground saturation.
  • Pick up leaf litter, sticks, and other debris. These organic materials trap moisture underneath. Scorpions love the habitat produced by organic clutter.
  • Remove yard clutter. A scorpion may prefer to hide under organic clutter, but any clutter will do. If an object is dense enough to shield a scorpion from the sun, it is a perfect hiding place. 
  • Store swimsuits and towels in a laundry bag. A damp swimsuit or towel next to a pool is an inviting hiding place for a scorpion. Perhaps you've noticed.
  • Keep lights off at night. Scorpions and the insects they eat are attracted to light. If you need your exterior lights for security, consider installing motion-sensitive bulbs or fixtures so your lights only come on when you are in your yard.

The Safe And Effective Way To Get Rid Of Scorpions For Good

When you contact Adams Exterminating Company, what can you expect? We recommend our Home Guardian Pest & Termite Control package for keeping harmful pests out of your Frisco home. The Home Guardian plan comes with everything you need.

  • Six exterior service visits during the year to provide ongoing and active protection around the exterior of your home. Our liquid applications make it hard for scorpions to live near your exterior walls or enter your home through tiny cracks.
  • Spot treatments target areas that are vulnerable and deal with the insects that scorpions eat.
  • Removal of spider webs reduces spider populations. Many spiders create egg sacs in their webs, and these tiny, paper-like structures can have hundreds of eggs. We remove them before they hatch and create a plentiful food source for scorpions.
  • Your licensed professional evaluates your property and makes suggestions to alter conditions that are currently favorable for scorpion habitation and help you naturally deter these pests.
  • Your technician will point out potential entry points that you may fix with some simple home improvements and may seal small gaps to help you with your exclusion.
  • Along with scorpion control, you have control of other key pests, such as wasps, spiders, termites, fire ants, and more.

We recommend these types of pets, in addition to birds, guinea pigs, and other small animals, be kept away from the treatment area until it is safe for them to return.
