  • Gus – He has scorpions all over his property he’s used a product he found online. It’s been doing the job and it’s worked. Should he continue this process or get a professional to do the job?

Recommendation – If it’s working, why stop? Just make sure you follow label directions and use protective gear. Use a black light at night and he’ll be able to really see if they are gone. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

*Curtis shares more about scorpions and how to control them in your neighborhood.
