Fox Pest Control’s Long Island Scorpion Exterminator Service

scorpion icon

Scorpions are arachnids, not insects, meaning they are closely related to spiders and ticks. These nocturnal pests primarily feed on small spiders, crickets and cockroaches, and will enter your Long Island home to take shelter in cool, dark places. Scorpions are commonly thought to be poisonous, and although some species are, most of the Scorpions in the U.S. are not poisonous. They will sting when threatened, similar to a wasp. It’s better to assume that they are poisonous just to be safe. If you have scorpions in your home, Fox Pest control is here to help exterminate them.

Signs of a Scorpion Infestation

You might already know you have a scorpion problem, but here  is what a scorpion exterminator looks for in the Long Island area.

Sightings

Seeing a scorpion is the only real sign of them. Because they’re nearly blind and very careful, they like to hide in cracks and crevices. They are found on Long Island homes very infrequently and usually by mistake.

Interestingly enough, those pincers aren’t actually legs. They are a pair of structures called pedipalps, which they use to capture prey, defend against predators, and to push food toward the mouth.
