Scorpion Extermination in Las Vegas
A member of the Arachnid family, scorpions have populated the Earth for over 420 million years. They prefer the dry, warm temperatures of desert climates, making the Las Vegas Valley a preferred habitat. Living a minimum of 4 to 6 years, scorpions bear live young — up to 100 at a time — following a year-long pregnancy. The speed at which they multiply makes scorpion extermination in Las Vegas critical.

HOW TO GET RID OF SCORPIONS
Scorpions typically hibernate in cold winter weather and become more active in the warmer months, when bug populations increase. Likewise, scorpions tend to frequent areas where their dinner — bugs, spiders and other creepy crawlers, including some lizards and even other scorpions, in the case of the Desert Hairy Scorpion — live. Dark, damp corners, wood piles, rotting vegetation, and lights shining in the night attract bugs and thus, scorpions. Scorpions can live for up to 6 months without food or water (and several days underwater, holding their breath) so even unused or closed off storage areas and flooded spots can contain scorpions.
The first step towards Las Vegas scorpion control is discouraging entry into your home. Remove piles of brush around your house and move wood piles well away from the foundation. Look for water leaks and dripping pipes and small cracks that allow the scorpion entry. Control the pest population around your home to make dining at your house less attractive. To protect young children, set crib or bed legs in glass jars to prevent the Bark Scorpion from climbing up to your sleeping child. Keep doors closed after dark and avoid walking barefoot at night.

TYPES OF SCORPIONS
Two types of scorpions — the Bark Scorpion and the Desert Hairy Scorpion — commonly inhabit the area. While both scorpions are classified as venomous, only the Bark Scorpion is considered significantly dangerous to humans. The very young and very old, along with individuals allergic to scorpion venom, are at particular risk from the sting of any scorpion, however.

Look no further! Buddies was referred to us over 3 years ago and we’ve never had an issue with insects while using their service. Brian, the owner, is very kind and helpful. He takes a lot of pride in his work and believe me it shows. We recently moved to a new house and it would have been the perfect time to switch companies if we were unhappy. From receptionist, to the techs, to owner – I am extremely pleased with their level of service and effectiveness.
I had a huge pigeon problem at my house and Buddies Exterminating took care of it quickly and for a great price! Its been almost 2 weeks and I never see pigeons anymore. My biggest regret is that I didn’t call them earlier! If you have pigeons at your house call them right now and they’ll get rid of them for you.
I am very impressed with them. 4 years ago, they put up screens on my solar panels (one of the few companies that will do this) to keep out the flying rats (pigeons). Once of the sections came loose and instead of charging for the house call they stated that it was due to one of their fasteners which they guarantee for 5 years! What a relief to work with such an honest and competent family owned business. Highly recommended.
Brian at Buddies is awesome!!! He’s been servicing our house for several years and keeps everything under control!! It’s crazy, if I notice a random spider or critter it’s like clockwork and that same day I get a text letting me know he’s coming tomorrow. So his timing is great…. he knows his stuff and the “life” of his product and it works great! There have been one or two occasions I asked him to come a bit earlier and he was very accommodating! It’s nice to be able to trust him coming into our house when we aren’t home with no hesitations. Thanks Brian!! You’re the best!!
Excellent! Amazing people, wonderful service. No bugs for years. Always on time. We have been with Buddies for many years and I cannot say enough good things about them. Beyond professional. Thank you so much for always being there whenever we need you!
I have used Buddies for years and think they are the best in town. The owner is professional, reliable and easy to get in touch with. He is cognizant of the environment and fur babies! I have and will continue to recommend his services to friends and colleagues. Big thanks to Buddies and Brian!
