Scorpion Control Could Save You $83,000

300px Scorpion tail 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.

Monsoon Brings Phoenix Creepy Crawlers

 

 

Arizona’s monsoon season officially wraps up at the end of the month. All this monsoon moisture we receive during the summer months creates the perfect breeding conditions for mosquitoes and other pests. Lots of critters come along with the rain, heat, and the humidity which offers the perfect combinations for insects to thrive, grow, and expand around your house.

 

People see a lot of insects during the monsoon they wouldn’t normally see. When it rains it floods out where they are hiding. They come out to get away from the water, looking for a dry spot.

 

What’s crawling around Phoenix during monsoon season?

Tarantulas can often be seen looking for a cozy hideout during monsoon season. Experts say they are a definite eyesore, but are not particularly dangerous. Their venom is no stronger then a bee sting and they will only bite as a very last resort.

The same can be said for the Vinegaroon, a popular yard dweller.  They are very intimidating in appearance, but are relatively harmless.

The Bark Scorpion is a very common and dangerous Phoenix pest. These scorpions are always in search of the water left by the monsoon storms. You’ll likely see many of more of these pests because the monsoon rains will flush them out of their homes. There are more of them in the city then in the desert.

The West Nile carrying mosquitoes are more prevalent during the monsoon season because they breed in stagnant water left by the monsoon rains. It’s important to drain any stagnant water around you property, like that found in puddles, bird baths, and tire swings, to help control these deadly bloodsuckers.

The most dangerous of all the monsoon pests– The Black Widow spider. She can cause damage with a single bite and is most prominent around the house. The Black Widow actually reproduces in very large numbers.  Right now it’s mating season so you have to be very careful.

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

Just moved in to a new house at **** Dunbar Dr., Phoenix, AZ 85042. Wondering what it would cost to get an initial service done — the house has been empty for a while so there are quite a few bugs, spiders, and I saw one scorpion in the house already. Thanks, Aaron W. – Phoenix 85042

I’d like to make an appointment for a free estimate on pest control treatment for our new house. It’s currently vacant, as we haven’t moved in yet. We’ve noticed scorpions, spiders, ants and mud wasp nests outside the house and in the yard. We’ve had a couple of scorpions in a bedroom and ants in the garage. Sofrema M.
