Are Whip Scorpions Dangerous? | Goldshot Exterminating

Are Whip Scorpions Dangerous?

Whip Scorpion | VinegarroonWhip Scorpions are really weird critters. There’s a lot of disagreement within the scientific community about, well, scientific stuff regarding whip scorpions. First off, they are not venomous like true scorpions are, which sets them apart. They also only have six functioning legs, although they do also have two additional front legs that are used as antennae or sensory organs. They have two pincers like true scorpions, but they are formed differently. Whip scorpions, also called Vinegarroons (sometimes spelled Vinegaroons), have four sets of eyes that are configured similarly to true scorpions. There are at least 100 known species of Vinegarroons world wide.

What really sets whip scorpions apart from most other critters is their ability to spray an acidic liquid from the rear of their abdomen as a self defense tactic. This spray smells an awful lot like vinegar, hence the name Vinegarroon. In that sense they’re sort of the skunk of the arachnid family. They also have a ‘whip’, which is located at the end of their abdomen which they use mainly as an additional sensory organ.

The good news is that they really don’t want anything to do with you and they aren’t frequent home invaders like bark scorpions are. The bad news is that the bite or pinch from some species can be very painful. The best thing to do is just shoo them along. They do an amazing job of controlling crickets and cockroaches.

Do Scorpions Come Out Of My Air Conditioning? | Goldshot Exterminating

Do scorpions come out of my air conditioning?

As a pest control company, we’ve done literally thousands of scorpion seals since we opened in 1991. A very large percentage of those customers were convinced that the scorpions were coming out of their air conditioning. Who can blame them when they have scorpions playing peek-a-boo from behind the A/C vent covers. It’s a common occurrence when folks have scorpions in their homes.

The fact is that in virtually every case, the scorpions are actually hiding in the wall voids and crawl spaces and entering the room via the gap between the ducting and the drywall. As you can see in the before & after pictures here, there is plenty of room for them to slide in and out in some homes. Sealing this gap on every single air vent that we can get to inside of the structure is an important part of the effectiveness of a scorpion seal. This application will also save money on your energy bill, as described by the Dept. of Energy in their ‘Air Sealing Your Home Article‘. The fact that a scorpion sealing – when done correctly – will eventually pay for itself is an awesome added benefit. But the real secret sauce here is that it will make it very difficult for scorpions to get into the structure – again: if done correctly.

You don’t have to share your home with unwanted guests. We know how to seal scorpions out and have thousands of happy customers to prove it. Save money on your electric bill, reduce the amount of dust that gets into your home and seal out scorpions today. You’ll sleep better:)

How Do I Get Rid Of Mosquitoes? | Goldshot Exterminating

How Do I
Get Rid Of Mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes & Mosquito Bites In ArizonaThe very first thing you need to be aware of as far as mosquito control is concerned is if there is any standing water around. If water is allowed to stand for a period of time, it will become stagnant and that’s exactly where most species of mosquitoes lay their eggs. Some times the source of standing, stagnant water may be off of your property – and out of your control. Mosquitoes don’t recognize nor respect property lines so if they’re allowed to breed and lay eggs anywhere close, you’ll have to deal with them.

Most species will go as far as three miles to find a meal. That meal, of course, will be you. So make sure there’s no standing, stagnant water for them to breed in, make sure your house is sealed up good and the doors and windows are closed, use yellow porch lights and look the other way if you have a couple of bats hanging around as they are the best mosquito control anywhere. Let your pest control technician know if you’re dealing with mosquitoes – he may be able to apply a repellent to areas of concern.

For more info about mosquitoes, check out this handy article: Mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes aren’t the only flying pest that we deal with. If you’re dealing with a pigeon infestation or a bunch of bat guano let us know:)

Are pesticides safe for my children and pets?

No – but the careful and prudent use of pesticides is safe, provided that the correct products are used and that they are mixed and applied according to label specifications. Children and pets should never be allowed to come into contact with a pesticide application until dry, dissipated and/or aerated. Here’s a standard pesticide warning:

WARNING: PESTICIDES CAN BE HARMFUL. KEEP CHILDREN AND PETS AWAY FROM PESTICIDE APPLICATIONS UNTIL DRY, DISSIPATED OR AERATED. IF AN EMERGENCY CONTACT POISON CONTROL @ 1-800-362-0101.

Is it true that pesticides do not kill scorpions? | Goldshot Exterminating

Is it true that pesticides don’t kill scorpions?

No. While some products definitely work better on scorpions than others, any pesticide will kill a scorpion with proper exposure. Controlling Arizona Bark Scorpions can be difficult and requires experience along with a thorough inspection and treatment. Another important element of sound scorpion control is educating the customer about eliminating any conditions that may be conducive to a scorpion problem. In addition to the proper scorpion treatment plan and great customer education and cooperation, sealing scorpions out of your home is also an important part of controlling a scorpion problem. Our team of Licensed Pest Pros are Pre-Screened to assure that they can handle all of the elements of a great scorpion control and prevention program for our customers.

How does scorpion sealing help with scorpion control? | Goldshot Exterminating

How does a home seal help with scorpion control?

Wanna Know How To Get Rid Of Scorpions? Call Goldshot Exterminating, you Scorpion Control Specialists Since 1991: 623-388-0303.

There are 43 known species of scorpions found in Maricopa County. Only one of these – the bark scorpion – is able to climb up a vertical surface. As a result, it is almost always the species that is found inside of homes and other structures. This species of Scorpion is most comfortable in dark, narrow spaces such as wall voids and crawl spaces. Every structure has gaps and crevices that allow access to the inside and to these void space areas of the building. So, how does scorpion sealing help with scorpion control? When a home seal is done correctly and with the correct products, most of these gaps and crevices are blocked or sealed off. That makes it much harder for scorpions to find their way into the structure.  Of course, this also applies to other critters such as spiders, crickets, etc.

A well done home seal by Goldshot Exterminating helps keep scorpions out, but it also helps keep cold air in. The result is lower energy costs which means that it will eventually pay for itself. Check out what Energy Star says about the benefits of a home seal HERE. It will also lower the amount of dust that gets in to the home. An added bonus is a reduction in pesticide use inside of the home as it pertains to your scorpion control program.

Why Do I Have Bugs If I Keep My House Clean? | Goldshot Exterminating

Why do I have bugs when I keep my house clean?

Pest Control Surprise Arizona AZ

If you have Ants in your house or yard we can help. We have a variety of products and services that we can utilize, depending on the species and where they are infesting.

Obviously critters such as roaches and ants are looking for a food source. But what many folks don’t realize is that they are also looking for water. And roaches are so easily transported from one place to another that it is easy to bring them home with you. Ants often nest under the foundation of your home so you don’t even know they’re there until they’re marching across your kitchen counter. Sometimes ants and roaches, as well as some other critters, come up from the sewer line. A dirty home is not a prerequisite to having a roach or ant problem, so put the Pine-sol away and call Goldshot!

Our team of Licensed & Pre-Screened Pest Pros offer a variety of pest control services in Surprise Arizona and throughout the metro Phoenix AZ area. 1-time, monthly, quarterly – whatever fits your needs and budget.

Do roaches really come up from the sewer? | Goldshot Exterminating

Do Roaches Really Come Up From The Sewer?

Pest Control Services Surprise AZYes – sometimes. The larger species of roaches such as the American, Oriental or Turkistanish Roaches are often referred to as sewer roaches. However, they are more likely to come from the outside. They like dark moist places such as the foundation of your home or a planter. They usually make their way inside under a door but can also come up through the sewer. All plumbing fixtures have a gooseneck in the pipe to hold water which blocks gases, fumes and bugs from coming up the empty pipes. One thing that a home owner can do to help is to run water down any drains that do not get used on a regular basis, keeping the gooseneck full. It’s a cheap, easy solution that will keep them from coming up if they are in the sewer lines. So next time you’re thinking ‘Do roached really come up from the sewer?’, turn all of your faucets on and count to 20. You’ll sleep better.

Are black widow spiders really dangerous? | Goldshot Exterminating

Are Black Widow Spiders Really Dangerous?

Female Black Widow Spider

Female Black Widow Spider

Yes – they absolutely are! Although the male and immature black widow spiders are harmless, the female is the most venomous spider in North America. Her venom is up to 15 times as toxic as some rattlesnakes! Once she reaches adulthood there’s no mistaking her for any other species of spider. Her body is jet black and her webbing is irregular and extremely sticky. And her egg sacks look like white, roundish little cocoons. But its the striking red hourglass on her almost perfectly round abdomen that really catches our attention. It’s a feature that it unique to female black widow spiders.

Their lifespan is 1 – 3 years and they thrive in the Phoenix AZ area. She secures her egg sacks with her sticky webbing, usually in dark, out of the way places. Each egg sack contains about 750 babies. They are distributed by the wind on their first strand of webbing. As a result, they can show up just about anywhere. A regular, thorough pest control service by one of Goldshot’s Licensed Pest Pros will keep them under control. The home owner should always teach their children not to touch the spiders or their webbing. I tell my customers to knock the old webs down with a stick a few days after treatment. If they come back we know there’s still at least one spider hiding in there. Of course, our team guarantees their work and go back for a respray when that happens. Any reputable pest control company will do the same for spiders, including the black widows.

Extra tip: immature black widow spiders are sometimes referred to as brown widows. They don’t turn black until their last molt into adulthood and are a cream or light brown until then. Though smaller when immature, they do still have the same basic shape and make the same sticky webs.

Here’s some additional resources about a few other arachnids that are present in the Phoenix area:

Brown Recluse

Tarantula

Bark Scorpion

Ticks

Spiders

Does an occasional ant mean I have a problem? | Goldshot Exterminating

If I only see an occasional ant in my kitchen
do I have an ant problem?

Ants live in colonies with many – sometimes many thousands – of members. They send out ‘scouts’ to search for food and water sources in the area of the colony. Of course an ant’s diet is much broader than most of ours. For instance, ants will eat things like dead animals, trash and bird poop. Yum…..

If you see one or two ants on the kitchen or bathroom counter the best thing to do is to remove them. Don’t squash them as they will release a pheromone that may attract other ants. And don’t let them return home because they would leave a different sort of pheromone trail that would indicate where the food and/or water were found. Next thing you know that one or two ants becomes dozens and you have an ant problem.

If you do see scout ants tell your pest control technician. The placement of a gel bait that is labeled for that species of ant may be appropriate – even if you’re not seeing any more ants. And if you find them in the bottom of your bowl of cereal don’t stress too much. They’re high in protein:)
