In Hawaii, scorpions present a risk to property owners and must be eliminated quickly. The insects can sting the property owner and cause serious risks to their health. The species of the scorpion defines how the extermination team should proceed. Local extermination teams perform scorpions removal for homeowners and commercial property owners.
What Do They Eat?
Scorpions eat other insects including spiders. Small mice that are also found in these properties are a food source for scorpions. The insects require large volumes of water to survive as well. The insects utilize pincers to inject venom into their prey before consuming them. This venom is toxic and could present a risk for humans and animals. For this reason, homeowners must take action quickly to eliminate them.
Can the Scorpion Venom Kill People?
It depends on the species of scorpions found inside the property. Typically, small scorpions that don’t grow more than about an inch in size aren’t dangerous to humans. However, species that are found in desert areas can lead to large transmissions of their venom. There have been some reports of small scorpions causing a fatality when biting humans. However, these were isolated incidents and the individuals with seniors with compromised immune systems.
Treating the Property
The scorpions are insects and are eliminated with insecticides. The chemicals are distributed in all areas in which the insects were discovered. The most common areas in which an infestation is a probability are darkened corners of the property as well as exterior areas. Typically, the scorpions choose damp areas near a water source.
Mitigating Further Risks of Infestations
The property owner must shut off all possible entry points. Since the insects are small, they can enter in cracks around doors and windows. They can also find their way in through small cracks in sheetrock.
In Hawaii, property owners must evaluate possible infestations and choose an extermination option. When dealing with insects such as scorpions, they must acquire extermination services first.
