Scorps in the Phoenix Valley. Is this is typical for construction here in Arizona, not only do you have to check outside but you must also check inside your family home? So this little Scorpion (let’s call him Fred) one night was out lurking about for food. He came down the block wall where he was living because he had learned about this nice cool spot where he had heard about the crickets singing and chirping all night long. He crossed the endless chasm of rocks and finally made it to the house and he started up the foundation where he found a crack. Now he was inside the wall, he started climbing the 2×4 wall studs, making his way to the attic of the house. Fred made his way under the insulation, he could’t really see anything, it was dark under all that insulation and it seemed to be everywhere. All of a sudden he fell, he had made it to a light and there was plenty of room around that light because no one had sealed it properly. Now he was in even bigger trouble, he had fallen into the bathtub and he couldn’t get out since it was very slippery porcelain. The little child Kylea was running around the house and saw something in the bathtub, she leaned over to touch it and Fred stung her. Fred was just doing what he was born to do, survive an attack by something bigger.
Well it’s to late for Fred the scorpion, the owners didn’t put up with him and gave him a sea burial. Better yet, they called ProBest Pest Management 480-831-9328 who did a home seal, specialized foam treatment and continuous monthly pest control. They also taught their child to learn the different bad bugs in the Valley.
The moral of the story, hire a pest professional to combat the bugs. Don’t wait until you, your family or pet is stung.
