Hi,

Just bought a house in Vegas and wondered who everyone thinks is the best pest control. We have scorpions at our rental house and absolutely do not want them at our new home. We've found 4 inside. They are the little bark scorpions and can climb walls. Not fun.

The pest control company the owners are using is clearly not working well as they came out to spray after we saw the first 2. A week after they sprayed, we saw 2 more.

Please advise! Thanks in advance!

Do a search for the member BUGBULLY. I was previously using a company that had me sign a long term contract, and even if they did not come out I was required to pay. Nevermind that immediately after they came out the bugs came right back. I used BUGBULLY (the name of the company if actually The Bug Bully) and saw immediate results, they were much cheaper than the other guy, and I was not required to sign a long term contract. I was literally so impressed that I decided to start referring clients that needed pest inspections to them.

4 inside your new home?

Just wondering because I have read that alot of time scorpions are brought to the property in your boxes and such, so be careful with that too.

4 in the rental - not the new house. We will definitely be careful with our boxes from storage though.

I'm no bug bully but I think you'll find that scorpions have to hunted down and shot...or squished I mean. They, like spidies, walk on their tippy toes and the poison which insects drag their bodies through doesn't get on them. They would need to be sprayed directly and they probably won't cooperate and be leaning against the garage door when the bug guy gets there. Get a black light and look for them at night. Chances are you won't even have any. I've seen exactly two since 1991 in Las Vegas. Don't let anyone spray poison in your new home. Keep it outside around the edge of the house and critters won't live long if they cross the line.

During my time in Vegas (6 years) I had found only one scorpion in the house. I was more worried about finding wolf spiders (actually I was worried the wife would find a wolf spider) than I was with scorpions.

And its my understanding that pest guys really can't get rid of scorpions because the chemicals don't kill them

You can, but you have to know what product to use. We actually use a dust for them. Surprisingly not many companies use it, but works wonders. I have a couple of customers up in Summerlin, that had them bad. They were paying a big name company lots of money about 5 times the amount we charge and they still had them. We did their first service and then went back the next month and the wife could not stop talking about all the dead scorpions she had.

Most companies hire guys that do not know their job. They just spray and leave. You have to keep up on your training. Every time I get a new bug that we have not seen, I search for things, so that we have an understanding on what causes them and also how to get rid of them. I have been in the industry in Vegas for over 10 years, and I had two new bugs this year that I have never heard of or seen here.
