AZ cooler nights send scorpions, spiders inside

Although the mosquito population dies down, Arizona winters do not get cold enough to kill off pests like spiders and scorpions, but the pests do change their behavior. They often nest in large groups.

"They want to be warm too," Aaron Sodies with University Termite and Pest Control said.

Sodies said scorpions and spiders will look for ways to get into your house, such as under doors and window sills.

"If you find any leaks in your house, it's going to be letting heat out and they are going to feel that heat and they are going to want to come in," Sodies said.

Deciding on whether or not to spray for pests during the winter months depends on a few factors.

"At least every other month," Sodies said.

Although, if you live in a rural or metro area, you may want to spray less or more often.

According to Sodies, it's better to spray than not.

"You don't want the problem to get out of control," Sodies said.
