Scorpions- Black Light Hunting – Pest Control by Bulwark Exterminating (1 of 2)

Woah. That’s a big o’guy. Yessiree we are entering the gate right now, of the home that see’s Oh I don’t know maybe thirty scorpions a week. And has contracted with us first ascertain the source of the problem and prescribe a treatment Got some over here too Another adult the last three scorpions that we’re
looking at in this one in particular looks like it should be about Three to five years old by the size See they are very fast If we were to turn some of this over, were gonna see from the looks of it we’re going to see a lot
of them. Let’s keep moving the more vibrations we make the less likely that we are going to see them So crickets like to breed and live in between this expansion joint you see
here there’s a paper joint in there that goes between the sidewalk and the
foundation And its there when the concrete expands and
Contracts due to the change in the temperature that absorbs that pressure well crickets and other insects eat that and scorpions come in and eat the crickets and insects so right here
as you can see in there, if you pan in there you can see that guy He’s kinda moving away deep down in there that’s where we find a lot of the scorpions this here is a plastic container that he used to keep pool equipment in, you’re generally not gonna find scorpions on
or inside the plastic because they have a really hard time climbing the surface you may find something underneath which
i may try to be able to move it. There’s one you don’t want to have one of these guys get ya they have a neurotoxin that debilitates your nervous system now some people react differently so i i have a friend who weights about two hundred and fifty pounds and he’s allergic His entire half of his body went numb when
one of the stung him after putting a shoe on as you can see right here stinger rolls up they don’t actually bite you, they sting you they can bite but their bite is is not going to hurt it’s this, let’s get some light on there it’s the stinger right here that you see
right there that really is the problem, he’s coming for you, he likes you. Let’s see if I can stop him hold down there boy as you can see he start getting real active he is trying to get
away I’m not going to hurt him but See how he holds now is a striking position scorpions are actually almost completely blind they do almost all their hunting, using vibrations on the ground so when a cricket comes along they’ve got a little scily on the under
side of his body and uh… they can tell which direction the
vibrations are coming from they use that to determine which direction
they’re going to run and also which direction they’re going to strike he’s just scared right now he’s not going to even strike me, I can even flick his tail like that and he’s not being aggressive right now yet, he’s kinda scared, so the problem is they live so close
to the house this guy being an adult there’s all kinds of weep holes and gaps I should’ve brought my mirror but they can just go right up into the side of
this right up underneath the stucco of the home and cause serious problems inside the home once they lay down their babies this is a good example because
he’s such a full grown Good looking Striped scorpion. Very healthy. Yeah, he’s been eating notice the center He’s now going home.

  1. not a striped scorpion a bark scorpion. You are right otherwise. Most of the other scorps you showed were terrestrial Desert hairy or stripes. Usually not the big problem around houses unless they become as common as this house. Must be some disturbances around this house, new construction etc. Uncommon to see the terrestrial scorps that common. Bark scorps need a food source, mostly ants, moderate moisture, and security. Most houses provide all that. We have commonly around our house the bark scorps. Never seen the others. Have been stung many times, it is very uncomfortable, but as narrator said, the reaction is variable from person to person. Vast majority of scorps you see in the house, on the walls, or up off the ground are bark scorps, the bad ones.
