Scorpion Identification & Prevention

Keep Yourself And Your Family Safe From These Venomous Pests

Scorpions can become a problem when they choose to leave their outdoor habitats in the search of a better place to live that provides them with more food sources. If you happen to stumble upon a scorpion in your home, be sure to take action immediately in order to prevent anyone in your family from experiencing a sting and to remove these pests before the problem gets worse by calling High Country Pest Control. We are located in Colorado Springs and serve the surrounding area including Castle Rock.

How can scorpions be identified?

Scorpions can be identified by the following characteristics:

  • A segmented body
  • The presence of eight legs
  • Color that ranges between reddish-brown, yellow, blue, and black
  • A segmented, erected tail that ends in a stinger
  • Two claws at the front go their body

Are scorpions dangerous?

While getting stung by a scorpion is generally nonlethal, they are still venomous nonetheless. Common symptoms of a scorpion sting include pain, numbness, and localized swelling. In serious cases, people may experience difficulty breathing and vomiting along with other severe reactions. Severe reactions are typically more common in children and older adults, but they can happen to anyone. If you experience a scorpion sting and experience any severe symptoms, be sure to seek medical care as soon as possible.

    "Jeremy is awesome."

    Remembered me from last year. If I had continued with monthly service I wouldn't be terrorized by a full on mouse invasion. Highly recommend their services.

    I had a bad problem with mice several years ago and hired High Country. They solved my problem and I signed up for the quarterly service. Not only NO MORE MICE but also no more unwelcomed insects!

    - Miles F.

    High Country Pest Control helped me with a mouse issue in my house. They came out very quickly and set up stations all around my house. When they came back for the follow up, the stations gave me a clear idea of what state my issue was in.
