Fox Pest Control’s Lafayette Scorpion Exterminator Service

Watching a scorpion run under your couch is one of the most terrifying things to see in your Lafayette home. Scorpions belong in the desert, or a wild west movie, not inside your place. Fox Pest Control wants to help you get rid of scorpions. We believe you and your family should live in a safe and comfortable space.

Signs of a Scorpion Infestation

You might already know you have a scorpion problem, but here  is what a scorpion exterminator looks for in the Lafayette area.

Sightings

Seeing a scorpion is the only real sign of them. Because they’re nearly blind and very careful, they like to hide in cracks and crevices. They are found in Lafayette homes very infrequently and usually by mistake.

Things You Need to Know About Scorpions

  • Scorpions have two pinchers extending off the front of their bodies. They use these to trap and eat prey. 
  • They have eight legs, much like a spider
  • They have a stinger coming off a long curved metasoma or “tail” which immobilizes their victims. 
  • While large scorpions with big, intimidating claws may look scary, these are usually the least dangerous kinds. They may hold a lot of venom, but they typically don’t release enough to seriously harm humans. 
  • Small baby scorpions are the ones of which to be wary of. Because they are inexperienced; these tiny creatures don’t have as much control over how much venom they release, so they often release too much.
  •  If you’re stung and cold compresses and ibuprofen aren’t relieving the pain well enough, contact a doctor. 

Helpful Scorpion Prevention Tips:

  • Seal common entry points.
  • Keep the yard tidy by keeping mulch away from the home. Scorpions like to hide in heavy mulch.
  • Reduce moisture in and around the home.
  • Reduce food sources – scorpions eat other bugs, so getting rid of pests around the home will help control scopions, too.

Are all scorpions dangerous?

All scorpions pack venom in their stinger, but few can kill a human. The most poisonous scorpions are usually the larger ones, but that isn’t always the case. It’s best to be cautious around them, no matter which type it is.

Which scorpions are the most poisonous?

One good rule to follow is based on the size of the claws. With a couple of exceptions, the most dangerous scorpions have small, slender claws. Almost all of the harmless scorpions have large, impressive claws. 

What is a scorpion?

Scorpions are a type of arachnid, which means they are distantly related to spiders. 

What does a scorpion look like?

Eight legs
Two pincers called pedipalps
A stinger on the end of a curled tail
Pincer-like mouthparts

Why do scorpions look so weird?

Part of the reason scorpions look so weird is that they are essentially dinosaur bugs that survived through ancient times. 

Why do scorpions have pincers?

Pincers originally evolved to help trap and push food toward the mouth. Eventually, they became excellent traps and weapons scorpions use today. While that creepy-looking appearance may be gross, it also makes the scorpion an extremely effective hunter and really good at self-defense.

What are scorpion pincers? Are they a tenth pair of legs?

Interestingly enough, those pincers aren’t actually legs. They are a pair of structures called pedipalps, which they use to capture prey, defend against predators, and to push food toward the mouth.

Are there scorpion fossils?

Scorpions are some of the first animals that started walking on land full-time. According to the fossil record, scorpions first appeared about 400 million years ago, long before the dinosaurs. Some of these scorpions reached about 1 meter long and looked extremely similar to the scorpions of today.

Are scorpions an ancient species?

Scorpions first appeared in the fossil record about 400 million years ago, which means they are among the first animals to walk on land full-time. 

How long do scorpions live?

Most scorpions can live between 2-6 years, depending on the living conditions, whether it gets enough food and whether the temperatures and weather are harsh.
