Scorpion Control Could Save You $83,000

Tail of a scorpion (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

An Ahwatukee, AZ women was stung by more then just a scorpion this summer. Marcie Edmonds was opening a box of air-conditioner filters inside her garage when she felt a sharp pinch with an accompanying burning sensation on her abdomen. The 52-year old woman determined that she was stung by a scorpion and opted out of seeking medical attention at first.

Symptoms

Over the next hour after the sting, Mrs. Edmonds started experiencing additional tingling sensations, fuzzy vision, throat swelling, darting eyes, and tense muscles. She knew she was in trouble when she lost her ability to walk and had difficulty breathing.

Treatment

Soon after experiencing all the painful symptoms of a scorpion sting, Marcie Edmonds contacted Poison Control which advised her to go to the emergency room immediately. With the assistance of a friend, Mrs. Edmonds was taken to Chandler regional Medical Center where she was informed about possible scorpion sting treatments like the antivenom Anascorp that could quickly alleviate her symptoms. Her symptoms subsided after she received two doses of the drug through an IV, and was discharged from the hospital in about three hours.

The Bill

Several weeks after the initial June scorpion sting, Marcie Edmonds was figuratively stung by a massive hospital bill she received in the mail that totaled $83,046. The two Anascorp doses, billed at $39,652 a piece, were partially covered by her Humana Insurance. Edmonds was held financially responsible for the remaining $25,537, and said the physician never talked with her about the cost of the drug or treatment alternatives.

Scorpion Control

Scorpion control is a must for those living in Arizona. Scorpion Control professionals offer year round treatments for approximately $400. Doing the math in my head, Mrs. Edmonds could have possibly saved herself $82,600 and avoided this nightmare altogether, is she solicited the help of an experienced exterminator.

Glendale, AZ 4-Year-Old Saves Grandma From Killer Bees

FOX 10 News – Phoenix, AZ | KSAZ-TV

Four-year-old Whitney Chrisman’s cartoons were interrupted Tuesday morning as she looked out the window and saw her grandma being attacked by a swarm of hostile Africanized “killer” bees.

“I saw bees and I heard bzzzzzz,” said Whitney

Little Whitney possibly saved her grandmother’s life by pushing her lifeline button and getting help. Grandma Betty, as Whitney calls her, was stung numerous times all over her face and body while outside her Glendale, AZ home. The attack left her in critical condition, in an intensive care unit, with multiple stings in and around her eyes, nose, mouth, and throat.

“Around and inside her nose and inside her mouth is just black, covered with bee stings,” says Whitney’s mom Cindy Chrisman.

The Africanized bees came form a beekeeper living next door, who is now looking at multiple fines for violating property laws and running a commercial business out of his home. The Africanized bees were so aggressive it took firefighters hours calm the bees down by spraying their hives with foam.

Africanized “Killer” Bees

Africanized bees, also know as “killer bees,” are a hybrid of honeybees from Europe and southern Africa. In 1957, the hybrid bee was accidentally released in Brazil by a beekeeper. European and Africanized honeybees can only be distinguished by molecular analysis.

These Africanized bees are ten times more likely to instigate an attack or sting then a common European Honeybee. What makes Africanized honeybees so hazardous is that they are more easily irritated, quick to swarm, attack in greater numbers, and will chase their victims for greater distances.

Trouble with Bees?

If you are having trouble with bees of any kind, contact your local pest control professional. Due to the ways bees carry pollen, dust pesticides are an effective way to quickly do away with bee problems. The bees can also be safely removed be a bee removal company.

Creepy Crawly Files: The Tailless Whip Scorpion

300px Ara%C3%B1a L%C3%A1tigo   tailless whip scorpion Creepy Crawly Files: The Tailless Whip Scorpion

Tailless whip-scorpion spotted at a home in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

A few days ago I had the opportunity to see the very rare and illusive Tailless Whip Scorpion. A technician was able to catch the unusual arachnid while on a job, and was able to bring it into the office for further observation. The experience was a first for me, and it was really rather extraordinary to see this creature in person. The story even made the evening news.

The Tailless Whip Scorpion

Some arachnids are very well-known. We all see spiders and scorpions quite frequently here in Arizona. There are also less known arachnids like the tailless whip-scorpion. Whip-scorpions have six legs in which they can run sideways on. They also have very vicious pincers that are used to catch their prey. Their prey includes most types of ground insects. A single cricket can nourish the Whip Scorpion for up to six months.

Are Tailless Whip Scorpions Safe?

Whip-scorpions differ from their scorpion cousin in that they do not have a stinger and are non-venomous. Whip-tail Scorpions are safe for humans to hold, if you can get past their frightening appearance. They have no silk glands or venomous fangs, but can spray a digestive enzyme containing an acid that is used to stun its prey. They hardly ever bite if threatened, but can grasp you with their pedipalps (pinchers) which can be uncomfortable.

Watch Out For Other Types of Scorpions!

While Tailless Whip Scorpions are safe, their scorpion cousins are not. They can be very dangerous to your health and the health of your family.

If you are having scorpion problems, contact a local pest control professional immediately!

Bark Scorpion Photos

scorpion ready to sting 300x155 Bark Scorpion PhotosScorpions will often fall into plastic containers, sinks, glass jars, or light fixtures.  Once they have found their way into one of these, they will be trapped by the slippery surface.  Here are some photos of the AZ bark scorpion, the deadliest scorpion found in the US.  Be careful not to get too close.  They do sting and can possibly put you in the hospital. If you feel symptoms of shock or difficulty breathing then you should seek medical assistance immediately.  Severe reactions and allergies tend to run within families.  If you are allergic to other insect bites and stings then you have a higher risk of being allergic to scorpion stings.

Between 40 and 100 Americans have been reported to die annually from anaphylaxis to insects, although this number may be underestimated. (See: Allergy Statistics: NIAID)

Do scorpions come out of my drains?

Bark scorpions do not come up out of drains.  The water traps in your drain prevent insects from entering through the sewage system.  So while it is true that the local Phoenix and Mesa sewers have their cockroach problems, the roaches will not invade your home through the sewers.  Typically after a hard ran they will scurry out of the sewers, on to the streets, and up your door step.  There they will wait patiently for a door to open and hurry inside your cool home.  Finding refuge in your walls, pantries, and medicine cabinets.  But the good news is that scorpions will hunt down your cockroaches for you…. or you could just call a professional Phoenix Cockroach Control, Scorpion Control, and General Pest Control service.

Are little scorpions more dangerous than big ones?

Scorpion pest control 300x235 Bark Scorpion PhotosThere is  a common misunderstanding when people say, “WATCH OUT FOR THE LITTLE ONES!” Yes.  The smaller scorpion species is more dangerous.  No. A little, as in younger or baby scorpion, is not any more dangerous than an adult.  In fact, it’s arguable that the tiny, tiny, babies fresh off the mother’s back are not as deadly since they will have a shorter supply of venom.  We  do know that baby scorpions don’t carry the same protein in it’s shell as an adult scorpion. az bark scorpion control 150x150 Bark Scorpion Photos

Phoenix Scorpion Season is Just Beginning

Scorpion Reports are starting to flow in.  Want to find Phoenix Scorpion Hot Spots? Our Phoenix Exterminator has a map of scorpion reports in your neighborhood to help you determine if you need Phoenix Scorpion Pest Control. Mesa, Queen Creek, Chandler are all mapped with high scorpion density.  Awatukee, Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, Paradise Valley, Cave Creek and Carefree tend to have a slightly higher scorpion call volume most likely due to the extensive dessert landscaping found in these areas.  Scorpions are found in Anthem and Maricopa as well but are a bit more spotty.  The West valley of Peoria, Glendale, and Suprise will also see moderate scorpion activity.

VIEWER ADVISORY: The following video gives a real example of the health hazards associated with scorpion stings. The images may be frightening to those that have pest fears.

Banner Poison Control Center reported 100+ calls of scorpion stings so far this month. The hospital officials say this is a substantial increase from the last month.  Your Bulwark pest control expert in the Phoenix metropolitan area says prime scorpion season is just beginning. Scorpions are most active between 75 and 90 degree weather.  As scorpions come out of the winter season and their less active dormant like or hibernation state they will began to mate and in 3 months will give live birth. A typical scorpion litter is 30-35 scorpion babies  but they can have up to 100 babies at a time.  Luckily scorpions will most likely only reproduce once per year since their gestation period is 3 months and the babies remain on the the mothers back for 2 to 4 weeks after that, leaving little chance for another reproductive cycle prior to winter.

The Scorpion Guy, AJ, is estimating that 80% of his phone current calls for pest control in Phoenix are scorpion related service requests.  Scorpion stings are climbing as temperatures go up.

Most stings are not fatal. But children are more likely to need medical attention as their bodies cannot metabolize as much venom as a grown adult. Most complications come in the form of allergic reactions to the venom. Mexico, which is home to similar dessert bark scorpions still reports a number of deaths per year due to scorpion stings. Mostly from the lack of a close hospital to help treat the victims. If a scorpion sting proves to be fatal it will happen within 24 hours of the sting. Those with sever reactions should seek medical attention immediately. Sever reactions are changes in breathing patterns, dilation of pupils, uncontrolled spasms, and paralysis.

Scorpion stings are common at night because scorpions are nocturnal by nature. The best advice we can give for parents is that you place mason jars or glass bowls under your child bed’s footings, and that move the beds 6 to 8 inches away from the walls. Scorpions can climb walls and will often fall from the wall onto bed or from the ceiling onto the bed.

Last year’s heavier rains will contribute to more vegetation and that will contribute to more bugs which means more scorpion food, which means more scorpion activity. 2010 Scorpion Forecast is looking high.

From your Phoenix Pest Controller, check your shoes and make that a start of a scorpion free day.
