Bark Scorpion: Signs of Infestation and When to Call a Professional

Hey there, Mesa residents! If you’ve been dealing with creepy crawlies lately, there’s a good chance you’ve encountered the infamous bark scorpion. These little critters are not just a nuisance; they can pose a real danger to your family and pets. 

So, how do you know if you have a bark scorpion problem, and when should you call in the pros? Let’s dive in!

Spotting the Signs of a Bark Scorpion Infestation

Protect your home from bark scorpions with Green Machine Pest Control's expert services and free inspections.

First things first, let’s talk about identifying these sneaky invaders. Bark scorpions are a bit like the ninjas of the insect world—they’re small, stealthy, and can be tough to spot. But don’t worry, I’ve got your back! 

Here are some telltale signs:

1. Actual Sightings

This might seem obvious, but if you’ve seen one bark scorpion, chances are there are more lurking around. These scorpions are usually pale yellow to tan and can be up to three inches long. If you spot one, it’s a good idea to act fast.

2. Nocturnal Activity

Bark scorpions are night owls. If you see them wandering around after dark, especially in places like your kitchen, bathroom, or garage, it’s a red flag. Grab a blacklight (scorpions glow under UV light) and do a quick check around your home.

3. Exoskeletons

Scorpions molt as they grow, leaving behind their old exoskeletons. Finding these around your home—especially in dark, undisturbed areas—is a clear sign you might have a bark scorpion infestation.

4. Painful Stings

If you or your pets have experienced unexpected, painful stings, bark scorpions could be the culprits. Their sting is particularly painful and can cause severe reactions, especially in young children and older adults.

Why Bark Scorpions Love Mesa, Arizona

Mesa’s warm climate is a haven for bark scorpions. They thrive in our desert environment and find plenty of places to hide in and around our homes. 

From the crevices in your walls to the piles of debris in your yard, scorpions are masters at staying hidden. Plus, they can go weeks without food, making them persistent houseguests.

Why You Need a Professional

Alright, so you’ve seen a few bark scorpions (or a lot), and you’re probably wondering, “Can I handle this on my own?”
