More and more research is revealing that pesticides and other man-made chemicals can be as bad for people as they are for bugs. Exposure to toxic chemicals is suspected to be contributory for Attention Deficit Disorders, emotional and behavioral issues, and chronic health problems.
Tips for the Heavy Scorpion Activity This Year
Due to the warm winter and rain, the scorpion activity is high. Remove debris, like wood piles, stacked blocks, and plastic pool covers on the ground from your yard that become a harborage. Cut back any bushes, trees and vines that touch your home, or hang on the ground. By also receiving monthly pest control year round you will significantly reduce scorpion issues. You can also have us give you a free estimate to do a scorpion home seal on your home to reduce the points of entry.
Scorpions don't bite, but scorpions sometimes sting. If you remain calm, it is not difficult to treat a scorpion sting. It is not likely to be fatal, however everyone reacts differently. Local medical centers are familiar with the treatment if you experience a serious reaction, which would require immediate medical attention, like throat swelling or breathing difficulties.
It is important to recognize scorpion sting symptoms: immediate pain or burning, very little swelling, sensitivity to touch, and a numbness & tingling sensation.
If you are stung by a scorpion, here are some actions you should take:
1. Wash the area of the scorpion sting with soap and water.
2. Apply a cool compress or ice on the area of the scorpion sting. Apply it to the sting location for 10 minutes. Remove compress for 10 minutes and repeat as necessary.
3. If stung on a limb (arm or leg) elevate the limb to heart level.
4. Call the Poison Control Center Hotline at 1-800-222-1222
5. If you develop symptoms such as numbness or tingling of extremities or blurry vision, throat closing, or muscle twitching, roving eye movements, go to the nearest emergency room. Young children, elderly people and those experiencing a serious reaction should be taken to the emergency room immediately.
