Scorpion stings rise with the heat

Please read this article about Scorpion Stings on the Rise on BulwarkPestControl.com.

210744512AC01 41 Scorpion stings rise with the heatRecord heat in the Valley of the Sun is pushing scorpions out of their favorite hiding places in search of food and moisture. Scorpions are cold-blooded; so a scorpion’s body temperature is the same temperature as the environment it lives in. The outside temperature is the single most important environmental factor of a scorpion’s behavior, distribution, reproduction and development. Another important factor is the amount of moisture found in a scorpion’s environment; moisture influences a scorpion’s metabolism and food supply. Just like a scorpion, insects also need moisture to survive. As the summer heat dries up the moisture in the insect’s favorite hiding places, the insects begin their search for water. Scorpions, too, begin to search for moisture and because they are hunters, they also begin to search for insects; which have began to migrate to environments with more moisture. A favorite hiding place for bugs and scorpions is in the moisture found in the beautiful grass and shrubs surrounding your home. Even though the desert is parched from the summer’s heat, your landscaping is a haven of shelter, heat and moisture; three of the most important factors for an insect’s survival.

If you have encountered scorpions before, you have likely heard that a scorpion can fit through a gap the size of a credit card. Scorpions are constantly on the hunt for insects and often find their way into a home in its continued search for food and moisture. Its no wonder that scorpions are running into humans at an alarming rate and according to the Banner Poison Control Center, scorpion stings are on the rise. In fact, in the past 24 hours or more, the Banner Poison Control Center received over 70 reports of scorpion stings.

“A recent study by the Banner Good Samaritan Poison and Drug Information Center showed that 33 percent of scorpion sting victims were stung in the bedroom with 24 percent being stung in the living room and only 6 percent in the bathroom. The study also showed most people, 60 percent, were stung on the hand or bare foot.” read more…

Bark Scorpion Photos

scorpion ready to sting 300x155 Bark Scorpion PhotosScorpions will often fall into plastic containers, sinks, glass jars, or light fixtures.  Once they have found their way into one of these, they will be trapped by the slippery surface.  Here are some photos of the AZ bark scorpion, the deadliest scorpion found in the US.  Be careful not to get too close.  They do sting and can possibly put you in the hospital. If you feel symptoms of shock or difficulty breathing then you should seek medical assistance immediately.  Severe reactions and allergies tend to run within families.  If you are allergic to other insect bites and stings then you have a higher risk of being allergic to scorpion stings.

Between 40 and 100 Americans have been reported to die annually from anaphylaxis to insects, although this number may be underestimated. (See: Allergy Statistics: NIAID)

Do scorpions come out of my drains?

Bark scorpions do not come up out of drains.  The water traps in your drain prevent insects from entering through the sewage system.  So while it is true that the local Phoenix and Mesa sewers have their cockroach problems, the roaches will not invade your home through the sewers.  Typically after a hard ran they will scurry out of the sewers, on to the streets, and up your door step.  There they will wait patiently for a door to open and hurry inside your cool home.  Finding refuge in your walls, pantries, and medicine cabinets.  But the good news is that scorpions will hunt down your cockroaches for you…. or you could just call a professional Phoenix Cockroach Control, Scorpion Control, and General Pest Control service.

Are little scorpions more dangerous than big ones?

Scorpion pest control 300x235 Bark Scorpion PhotosThere is  a common misunderstanding when people say, “WATCH OUT FOR THE LITTLE ONES!” Yes.  The smaller scorpion species is more dangerous.  No. A little, as in younger or baby scorpion, is not any more dangerous than an adult.  In fact, it’s arguable that the tiny, tiny, babies fresh off the mother’s back are not as deadly since they will have a shorter supply of venom.  We  do know that baby scorpions don’t carry the same protein in it’s shell as an adult scorpion. az bark scorpion control 150x150 Bark Scorpion Photos

Scorpion Problem Fixed – Bulwark Exterminating

Another satisfied customer from Bulwark Exterminating.

We started with Bulwark 2 years ago to see if they could help with the scorpions invading our house!!! We had a regular service but they couldnt seem to help with keeping them out. A friend who had the same problem recommended Bulwark so we switched. Ed Sakugawa,our technician, came for the first service date and we were so impressed with the time and attention he paid to our house and scorpion problem. No other pest control had ever taken our outlets off and sprayed in them before. He took the time to seal our doors to ensure the bugs would stay out!!! He is always polite and friendly and impresses me with each visit. We recently moved and he provided the same above and beyond service that we have come to expect from Ed. Thank you Ed for giving our family some peace from those nasty little buggars!!! I have and will continue to recommend Bulwark and Ed Sakugawa to anyone I know!!?

Phoenix Pest Control Customer Review Scorpions in Home

I have been using Bulwark for 6 or 7 years in our old house and our new one. The house next to us is vacant and has been for almost a year. Recently we saw a scorpion in our house. We called Bulwark and Dustin came out right away. He treated our house inside and out, and explained things about what scorpions do, likely points of entry, and how to prevent it. Now, he makes a point of spraying the wall of the vacant house next door as that is most likely the source of our problem. All of the technicians we have had are very polite and professional. Dustin has been great. And Bulwark has been great for us.?

Ladonna – Jun 11

Thanks Ladonna!

We are happy to do the work we promised to do and we are even happier to hear that you were satisfied with the service.  Please call us at any time you need additional service.  We will come back at no cost.  Pest Control service should be protecting your home from bugs and service.

Phoenix Scorpion Season is Just Beginning

Scorpion Reports are starting to flow in.  Want to find Phoenix Scorpion Hot Spots? Our Phoenix Exterminator has a map of scorpion reports in your neighborhood to help you determine if you need Phoenix Scorpion Pest Control. Mesa, Queen Creek, Chandler are all mapped with high scorpion density.  Awatukee, Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, Paradise Valley, Cave Creek and Carefree tend to have a slightly higher scorpion call volume most likely due to the extensive dessert landscaping found in these areas.  Scorpions are found in Anthem and Maricopa as well but are a bit more spotty.  The West valley of Peoria, Glendale, and Suprise will also see moderate scorpion activity.

VIEWER ADVISORY: The following video gives a real example of the health hazards associated with scorpion stings. The images may be frightening to those that have pest fears.

Banner Poison Control Center reported 100+ calls of scorpion stings so far this month. The hospital officials say this is a substantial increase from the last month.  Your Bulwark pest control expert in the Phoenix metropolitan area says prime scorpion season is just beginning. Scorpions are most active between 75 and 90 degree weather.  As scorpions come out of the winter season and their less active dormant like or hibernation state they will began to mate and in 3 months will give live birth. A typical scorpion litter is 30-35 scorpion babies  but they can have up to 100 babies at a time.  Luckily scorpions will most likely only reproduce once per year since their gestation period is 3 months and the babies remain on the the mothers back for 2 to 4 weeks after that, leaving little chance for another reproductive cycle prior to winter.

The Scorpion Guy, AJ, is estimating that 80% of his phone current calls for pest control in Phoenix are scorpion related service requests.  Scorpion stings are climbing as temperatures go up.

Most stings are not fatal. But children are more likely to need medical attention as their bodies cannot metabolize as much venom as a grown adult. Most complications come in the form of allergic reactions to the venom. Mexico, which is home to similar dessert bark scorpions still reports a number of deaths per year due to scorpion stings. Mostly from the lack of a close hospital to help treat the victims. If a scorpion sting proves to be fatal it will happen within 24 hours of the sting. Those with sever reactions should seek medical attention immediately. Sever reactions are changes in breathing patterns, dilation of pupils, uncontrolled spasms, and paralysis.

Scorpion stings are common at night because scorpions are nocturnal by nature. The best advice we can give for parents is that you place mason jars or glass bowls under your child bed’s footings, and that move the beds 6 to 8 inches away from the walls. Scorpions can climb walls and will often fall from the wall onto bed or from the ceiling onto the bed.

Last year’s heavier rains will contribute to more vegetation and that will contribute to more bugs which means more scorpion food, which means more scorpion activity. 2010 Scorpion Forecast is looking high.

From your Phoenix Pest Controller, check your shoes and make that a start of a scorpion free day.

Bulwark Pest Control makes Favorite Place

“We’re a Favorite Place on Google!”

Favorite place phoenix az Bulwark Pest Control makes Favorite Place

Bulwark Pest Control - Phoenix AZ favorite Place

The owner of Bulwark Exterminating feels like he just won the lottery!  According to Google…

Over 100,000 businesses were identified as Favorite Places, representing less than 1% of the 28 million U.S. businesses. We believe that our standards for selecting businesses are as selective or more selective than other companies which have run similar initiatives.” http://www.google.com/help/maps/favoriteplaces/business/faq.html#biz-faq-decal

The internet is a buzz wondering how this will work.  Cnet reported on this feature and the possibilities it holds…

“Google has taken the concept a step further, however, in the use of the QR codes to link to the Place Pages. Owners of smartphones with a camera (Google specifically said that iPhone, Android, and most BlackBerry owners would be supported, but others may work as well) and QR code scanning applications will be able to launch this information in their phone’s browser.” -CNET

It really does seem an honor to be found by Google and recognized by the information leader as a “Favorite Place.” But what is google really after?  More information?  More votes?  More visitors?  Becoming the directory of choice, finally ousting the phone books all together? Should Bulwark give into this take over?

As a business owner, Adam hopes that being recognized will bring him more business.  And he feels that it will, so why not? Appearing in a window near you soon…

We’re a Favorite Place on Google!

Grade your service update, July 09

Jimmy writes: “Jameson took the time to explain some of the treatments he was applying for our scorpion problem. He took the time to address the points with extra care that I had pointed out where we have seen them at. He was very knowledgeable and also explained on the training Bulwark employees receive specifically on scorpions. With both experiences with Bulwark being 10/10 I think you just made a long term customer. Thanks”
