Scorpion Control in Waco, TX

Having a close encounter with a scorpion in your home or yard can be startling. When sensing danger, these creatures can sting you, which can be quite painful. If you are concerned about the scorpions on your property, contact ABC Home & Commercial Services. Our specialists take a full-property approach to scorpion control in Waco, so you can minimize your exposure to these unwelcome visitors.

ABC takes a full property approach to scorpion control. Scorpions are typically difficult to control with pesticides alone, as these creatures tend to hide in piles of rocks or logs outdoors or behind clutter in a home. Our first step is to recommend small changes on your property to make it more difficult for these pests to hide.

Then, we will apply treatments in the corners of your home and in other common spots where scorpions are typically found, such as in your attic. Next, we apply a repellent to the exterior of your home and then treat potential entry points around doors, windows, eaves and any other cracks.

Our thorough treatment plan involves treating out of the way areas on your property, so your ABC pest control specialist may need a few hours to fully and safely complete your service and eliminate your scorpion issue.

4. Prevention

Customers with our ongoing pest management services will receive periodic retreatments to prevent the return of the most common pests in our area.

The most common species of scorpion throughout Texas is the striped bark scorpion. When one of these creatures senses danger, it will sting in an attempt to protect itself. While most people only have moderate reactions to a striped bark scorpion sting, the impact of a sting can vary greatly. Some scorpions produce higher concentrations of neurotoxins, resulting in a more painful, swollen welt. Additionally, some people are more allergic to these neurotoxins than others and may have a more serious reaction to stings.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you get started?

We understand how scary it can feel when you find a scorpion—or even worse—multiple scorpions on your property. After you contact us by chat, online form or phone, we will send a specialist to your home as soon as possible to provide you with a preliminary inspection and an estimate. On some occasions, we can even offer an estimate over the phone.

How can I prevent scorpions from getting on to my property?

The best way to reduce your scorpion population is to eliminate potential shelter and food sources. Generally, we recommend that our customers:

  • Keep debris and firewood away from the exterior of your home
  • Cut back any trees or shrubs that are touching your home
  • Replace weather stripping around doors and windows
  • Reduce clutter around your home and yard
  • Seal cracks, crevices and other potential pest entry points
  • Replace any broken window and door screens
  • Sign up for ongoing preventative pest control services

After our preliminary inspection, we will be able to provide you with customized tips. Additionally, ABC offers a routine treatment service that targets many of the common pests in the area, including scorpions.

As a family-run business, ABC has a thorough research process in place when it comes to selecting products. We’re looking for low-impact, highly effective solutions that are specifically formulated for residential use. Our technicians are trained to use the lowest concentrations of chemicals possible that will allow the product to be effective in treating your problem all while being low impact. Also, we only select products that we would feel comfortable using in and around our own homes.

“I was very impressed with the handyman services provided by ABC Home & Commercial Services. Mark was professional and treated my home like it was his own. He did a phenomenal job fixing the loose siding on the chimney and securing the cedar shutters on the front of our home. While working inside our home, he listened to my concerns and addressed the tasks with efficiency and informed me of the curing time needed for the caulk to properly dry. I would definitely contact ABC again for future needs and request the same technician again.”

“We had a problem with an AC unit not cooling. We couldn’t reach ABC over the weekend (turned out we were calling the wrong number. They have an after hours answering service) so we called a different company. They told us the compressor was tripping the breaker and needed to be replaced. We were quoted $3700 for a new compressor or $7800 for a whole new AC. We decided to hold off and get a second opinion from ABC because we’ve used them for various things for more than 30 years, and we trust them. Their AC tech came out and said he was pretty sure the problem was the breaker, not the AC, so we asked ABC to send out an electrician. The electrician pulled out the breaker and confirmed that was the problem. It took him less than 45 minutes, and that was with me watching and asking questions about it. He probably would have been able to do it faster without an audience. For both techs to come out, the total was about $160. With the other company, we would have paid at least $3700 just to find out it still didn’t fix the problem.”
