The Mayo Clinic says, “The very young are likely to die of untreated venomous scorpion stings.” Arizona parents are especially careful, but family pets are at-risk of scorpion stings, too.
A camping trip offered Emily a way to keep the kids engaged while traveling. They could socially distance and bring the family dogs! Emily says she knew about Phoenix scorpions. “We certainly weren’t going to find them in a seaside resort on the Gulf Coast, right?” Wrong.
The smallest dog, Pixie hid under the camper, whimpering. The other dog, Snowball was fearfully but determinedly batting the grass with his paw. When Snowball proudly presented Emily with a dead scorpion, she understood what had happened. She hurried to pull her smaller pet out from under the camper.
She found a local vet online and rushed the now-lethargic Pixie to the vet, sobbing the entire 30 minutes it took to get there. The vet knew exactly what to do.
He located and removed the stinger from behind Pixie’s ear, applied a cold compress and gave her a pain reliever and Benadryl. Within minutes, Pixie was sound asleep.
Pixie was lumpy-looking and grumpy for 2 days, but Emily was grateful.
What to Do About Phoenix Scorpions and Pets
With Phoenix scorpions, bigger is often better. The ugly, scariest-looking big scorpions are often much less deadly than smaller Phoenix scorpions (especially the Bark scorpion).
- Breathing difficulty
- Muscle tremors
- Uncharacteristic urination/defecation
- Watery, bloodshot eyes/dilated pupils
If you can safely remove the stinger(s) with tweezers, do so. Otherwise, wait until you reach medical care. Apply a cold compress to the area, wait 10 minutes, let the site breathe, then apply another cold compress for 10 minutes. Unless your vet has told you the correct dose, don’t administer Benadryl. Wait to be sure.
Prevention is the Best Medicine for Phoenix Scorpions
If you have the dead scorpion, take it with you to the vet.
Until recently, wishful thinking was as effective as most prevention treatments for Phoenix scorpions. It isn’t that your local pest professional was dishonest. Safe, effective pest elimination can be guaranteed (depending on the type of insect) but pest prevention cannot. Until now.
Repel is the First Guaranteed Prevention for Phoenix Scorpions
Traditional methods to eliminate and prevent Phoenix scorpions from invading your home might temporarily get rid of them (or at least slow them down). Eventually, you’d have to deal with the problem again.
Scorpion Repel is the newest, safest, most-preferred method. It’s often called “revolutionary,” and for good reason. Arizona scorpions are terrific climbers; that’s why you’ve even seen them in trees. But their pinschers can’t navigate glass. A glass-like surface stops them cold.
