Scorpions are not aggressive by nature, but they will certainly defend themselves if they feel threatened. Unfortunately, chance encounters with scorpions on your property can lead to venomous stings; children and pets are the most often affected, and the effects of stings can be more profound to them. Scorpions are nomadic in nature and will readily shelter in any area that suits them, meaning that they can find plenty of places to hide on your property. 

Scorpion control in Las Vegas is critical if you want to ensure the health and safety of your Las Vegas property, and Anver Pest Control stands ready to help. Call us today for help with scorpions.

Understanding The Common Scorpion

There are many different types of scorpions, but they share common traits:

  • Scorpions are mainly nocturnal, meaning they prefer to come out at night.

  • Scorpions are predators and prey on insects for food. Wherever insects go, scorpions are sure to follow.

  • Scorpions possess venomous stings that they use to immobilize their prey. Most have venom that is not seriously dangerous to humans, but some do.

  • Scorpions can live for up to ten years in the wild. In captivity, they can live for up to 25 years.

  • Scorpions have two pincers up front, which they use to grasp and manipulate prey. 

Once scorpions have moved onto your property, they won’t leave until you do something about it. The best thing to do is to get in touch with Anver Pest Control. We know how to handle scorpions and can take care of yours.
