San Antonio Scorpion Control

Scorpions are arachnids that have pincers and a stinger. Most people consider scorpions to be a frightening creature because of their appearance and the harm that they can cause humans and pets.

Scorpions are predators, and so they spend their time looking for prey. They get alarmed when other creatures approach them, and so they are known to sting people and pets that come too close to them. It is never a good idea to present yourself as a threat to a scorpion. Of course, this can happen accidentally, and so special precautions must be taken to prevent contact with a scorpion.

The most common type of scorpion in San Antonio is the striped bark scorpion. These scorpions grow to be about two or three inches in length. Thanks to their size, they can hide all throughout the house and in the yard. Scorpions are nocturnal, and so they spend the day hiding and hunt during the evening. The striped bark scorpion's string is not usually fatal, but people who are allergic to their poison may experience severe health problems if stung. Of course, you will not know if you are allergic until you are first stung.

Scorpions are active during the warm months of the year. They generally hide during the winter, but they do not leave your home. They crawl into the walls or the attic. They reproduce quickly, and so it is important to contact an exterminator immediately upon finding just one or two scorpions.
