Scorpion Control in Arizona


Unlike much of the United States, Arizona residents in the Phoenix metro area have to worry about an additional – and occasionally dangerous – type of pest: the bark scorpion. There are about 90 scorpion species in the U.S., more than 40 of which call Arizona home. Only one species of scorpion in the western U.S. has venom that is dangerous to humans, but that one species is the most common scorpion we work with in Arizona: the Arizona Bark Scorpion. Although the Arizona Bark Scorpion is venomous, its sting is the most dangerous to people who have an allergic reaction, and antivenin is widely available in Arizona when needed. We recognize the concern these scorpions are for many in the Phoenix area. Fortunately, Blue Sky is known for the effectiveness of its scorpion control.

Blue Sky Pest Control is Known for the Effectiveness of its Scorpion Control

Blue Sky Pest Control is your go-to company for scorpion control in Phoenix, Arizona, and throughout the Valley. Scorpions are a difficult pest to control. Blue Sky uses a proven multi-step treatment approach that is designed to treat the areas that scorpions nest and breed.

We Live in the Natural Habitat of the Bark Scorpion

Bark scorpions are very common in the Phoenix, Arizona desert. We find them in nearly every neighborhood we service throughout the Valley. They are one of the most difficult pests to control for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons is that they can live for up to 7 years. Since they live so long, if left uncontrolled, an infestation will continue to grow.


Scorpions are often found in homes or commercial buildings in newly developed areas or in neighborhoods where construction is ongoing. Construction disturbs the scorpions’ natural habitat, so they seek refuge elsewhere – including in your home or building.

However, scorpion infestations can also happen in established neighborhoods without any obvious cause. Once they’ve moved into an area, they can be very difficult to get rid of. Although property owners can treat and seal their own homes, the scorpions will likely just move to a neighbor’s house.


Blue Sky’s scorpion pest control techniques include training each technician to customize the service to your home using inspection and scorpion control methods that target scorpions at their source, where they nest and breed. Bark scorpions tend to:

  • Hide under rocks and debris.
  • Hide during the day and are active at night.
  • Search for a water source.
  • Like block walls.

The Blue Sky service technician assesses the property to determine the likely nesting and breeding areas like those described above. These areas are appropriately treated and the technician may also recommend any landscaping changes and/or identify anything that should be removed from the yard to reduce nesting and breeding sites.

Blue Sky always mixes its scorpion control products to the EPA-approved levels to achieve maximum results while keeping the application people, pet and environment friendly. Product labels allow for different mixing levels to control different types of pests. Because scorpions are a major concern for our customers in Phoenix, Arizona, Blue Sky always mixes its products at the proper levels to consistently control scorpions.

Tips Against the Bark Scorpion

  • Remove their refuge: Remove piles of debris, wood or rock out of the yard.
  • Seal the house: Caulk cracks and openings around doors, windows and screens. Keeping them outside through effective exclusion is an important part of reducing the likelihood of them getting inside the home. Blue Sky does provide home sealing services.
  • Remove unneeded boxes and other items from the home and garage: We want to remove any nesting and breeding sites. Keeping the garage tidy can make a big difference.
