Armed with venom-filled stingers and menacing pincers, scorpions are a unique pest species no one wants to find in their home. Unfortunately, these stinging pests are a common sight throughout the western United States. From scuttling across your floor to hiding in sinks, scorpions can strike at any moment.
Strike back at scorpions with PURCOR™ Pest Solutions! We’ve designed our scorpion control services to tackle your scorpion at its roots with targeted, effective solutions. In addition to educating our local scorpion control specialists, we use pyrethrum-based products. Learn more about our scorpion control solutions below, or contact our team today!
What is pyrethrum?
Pyrethrum is the extract derived from chrysanthemum flowers. It contains six esters, or compounds, called pyrethrins. These naturally-occurring compounds attack insects’ nervous systems—exterminating them without the use of harsh, unnatural chemicals.
Pyrethrin Products for Scorpion Control
Pyrethrins are capable of eliminating a variety of pests when they are sprayed directly. Common pests that PURCOR™ Pest Solutions’s team of specialists can control and prevent with pyrethrin products include:
- And more
Unlike other pest control products, pyrethrins do not have a residual effect. Once the products have dried, their pest-killing ingredients become inactive.
Pyrethroid Products for Scorpion Control
Pyrethroids are an artificially-made version of pyrethrin esters. Unlike naturally-occurring pyrethrins, which become inactive after drying, pyrethroids keep killing desert insects and other pests after being applied for more continuous control.
Should I use pyrethrin or pyrethroid products in my home?
Though pyrethrins and pyrethroids may be effective in terminating pests, it’s crucial to consider environmental factors around your home, yard, or business before choosing these treatments.
Factors you should discuss with PURCOR™ Pest Solutions’ pest specialists before treatment include:
- Safety of your family and property
- Severity of your pest infestation
- Type of surfaces that will be treated
- Environmental conditions, such as water runoff
- Pest treatment regulations in your area

Frequently Asked Questions
Scorpions are a venomous and very dangerous pest that you should not attempt to deal with on your own. There are some DIY scorpion control strategies you can utilize to help keep them out, but once inside, you should leave it up to the pros. Contact PURCOR™ Pest Solutions today for expert scorpion control services. We utilize pyrethrum-based products to humanely eliminate scorpions with minimal contact.
In addition to simply being a scary sight, having scorpions in your home is legitimately dangerous. While their stings rarely cause death outside of allergic reaction, they do result in mild symptoms such as pain, swelling, and warmth at the sting site. Some species of scorpions, such as the Arizona bark scorpion, have venom that can cause more severe symptoms, especially in young children, older adults, or those with compromised immune systems.
If you come across signs of a scorpion infestation in your home, don’t panic. Keep a safe distance and isolate any scorpions you’ve seen by shutting doors and/or windows. Then, pick up the phone and call in the experts at PURCOR. Our technicians utilize naturally-occuring pyrethrum-based treatments that attack the nervous systems of insects like scorpions, ants, and spiders.
