Common Pest Issues We Treat in San Tan Valley
Common types of pests we treat in the area include:
Bark scorpions like homes and other buildings that border underdeveloped desert.
These habits make homes in San Tan especially vulnerable to bark scorpions in all kinds of indoor and outdoor materials. They often hide in nooks and crannies inside or hide in concrete block walls or river rock yard decorations. Sometimes hundreds of bark scorpions hide in a single fence!
The bark scorpion has a painful sting, with babies often delivering the most potent stings. Their stings aren’t usually dangerous to older children or healthy adults.
Bark scorpions are seen throughout the San Tan region, especially in those areas with less development. Activity occurs during the summer or after a rain. In San Tan, we see the most bark scorpion activity in homes near the border of the Sonoran Desert in the Southwest.
House crickets are the most common cricket species in San Tan year round. They can survive on many types of food, making almost any environment a good one for them.
In addition to their annoying chirping, crickets serve as a food source for more dangerous pests like spiders and scorpions. Crickets like to hide in clutter including rocks, boxes, unkempt landscaping, and other types of debris.
We see a lot of crickets in San Tan around N Gantzel Road, in the center of town, and to the north of E Ocotillo Road.
