Chemicals are applied that provide the best results to control the scorpions, this is a different application from our normal regular monthly services.

Black Light Detection

Black light is something you can do yourself or we can come out to your home or business after darkness and do it for you. The video on the page shows what it looks like when you shine a black light on a scorpion. This can help determine how serious your scorpion problem is and what areas of your property has the main problems. Of course any scorpion we find with black light is killed on the spot.
 
 
 
 
Scorpion foaming solution
 

Foaming Solutions

Scorpions love to hide in cracks or voids of houses and buildings. This can be a crack in your block wall, gaps in your retaining wall, pool deck drain tracks, and around your home where the stucco meets the concrete at the bottom of your home. Foaming we feel brings the best results and longer residual, which means it last longer therefore can kill scorpions for a longer period of time. Our customers that try the foaming love the results! You can see in the pictures how the foam solutions looks when applied into the cracks. Chemicals are then applied with a foaming agent that when injected looks like shaving cream and will expand into the whole void. Eliminating any hiding places from the scorpions or any other insects that may be hiding in there like like crickets or roaches. Foaming also gives the chemicals more time to adhere to the porous surface which results in longer lasting effects.
 
All three services can be used together or separately. Please give us the opportunity to show you the results! Let Blackburn Pest Control help keep those you love safe from scorpions.
