Scorpions and spiders of all shapes and sizes are rather prevalent in Nevada, and unfortunately they often times find themselves in our kitchens, bedrooms, garages, etc. Friends of mine who aren't afraid of pests like this say how good they are to keep other insects out of the house, but I personally would rather not have ANY insects in my house, and I am sure many would agree!
A young gal that works in my office is absolutely terrified of spiders, scorpions, and so on, and just a about a month ago she was telling me the problem she was having in her home with both! She said she went to Home Depot and picked up a gallon bug sprayer called Ortho Home Defense and it was around $15, and she boasts about how she hasn't seen anything in her home since she sprayed! Makes me wonder why I pay my exterminator $250 a year when this $15 gallon lasts for a year and has such great results apparently! She said she only used about half of the gallon too, so she has some left over for the next time she wants to spray. You should give it a try before you spend hundreds on those pricey exterminators!
Best of luck!
