Will Cynoff WP kill Arizona Bark Scorpions?

I have been told that there's not a pesticide that will kill this type of scorpion, and Cynoff WP only kills off their food supply which will make them move. What product do you recommend if it isn't Cynoff WP?


Cynoff WP will kill scorpions, but scorpions do take longer to kill than other insects. Most insecticides must be ingested for them to work, but since scorpions do not groom themselves like other insects it takes longer for them to get a lethal dose. It is also true that Cynoff WP can help eliminate much of the scorpions food source (other insects), making your property poor hunting grounds and forcing the scorpions there to move and stopping new scorpions from moving.
