Review RateWorks OK
Works but not "kills on contact" good. The little, immature scorpions succumb to it pretty quickly but not the big boys. I bought this in hopes it would take very little to kill them, making it worth it's weight in gold, but the full grown, breeding size adults take several sprays if you don't want to stand there and wait 10 minutes to see if/when they die (which is standard procedure so they don't get away just to breed another day). Overall, it does kill them, but not "as advertised".
Review RateEffective product with ineffective sprayer
The products works well when sprayed directly on the scorpion, but the sprayer can be hit or miss. I probably go through 3 cans a summer, and 2 of those cans will have defective sprayers on them. Always keep a working lid around to swap out the inevitable bad one.Response From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateReally good product for killing spiders and scorpions
We live in a desert environment in Texas and have a hard time keeping spiders and scorpions out of our house. But, this product is like spraying battery acid on large spiders. Works well on scorpions too - - stops them in their tracks. For larger scorpions it may take a few minutes for them before they are completely dead, but they DO die via this product spray. Just went and bought 6 more cans today.
Review RateBest Product for Scorpion Control
This is the best product for killing thus controlling the scorpion population where we live in the Chihuahua Desert. We use infrared flashlights for our nightly patrol during the summer months to light up the scorps then spray them with a foam coating of Terro Scorpion Killer and within minutes, they die.
Review Ratescorpions have no chance

Review RateWorks every time!
Been using this stuff for about 10 years now. Living on the outskirts of Phoenix we see them a lot. I go out in the evening with a UV flashlight, yellow tinted glasses and a can of this stuff. Turns you into the Scorpion terminator! Most die within minutes of being sprayed and those the slip into a crack are done anyway if you hit them with it. It's not a flamethrower or nuke, they are not going to die the instant they get sprayed. It works and I tell everyone about it!
Review RateJust makes scorpions mad
I've tried using it four times now. Each time I just ended up with a ticked off scorpion that tried to hide. It's less stressful just to smash them.Response From Terro®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. Due to a number of variables, our contact killers are designed to kill the scorpions and insects within 48 hours of coming in contact with the product. We recommend allowing more time for the product to be effective.

Review RateIt works!
Although it states it starts killing as soon as it is applied... I find it kills in a min or two depending on the size of the scorpion. I have been using this for years with MUCH success. Happy scorpion hunting fellow AZers!!
Review RateUnsure. I simply can't wait an hour watching a big move around. I need to know it's over with
I live in Arizona and even with regular pest control service you can't get all the scorpions. Thought I'd try this for my evening hunting. I can say I've given one a bath and an hour later still moving. I use a hammer usually, thought this could be helpful knowing it's done in its tracks. How safe is it for pets if they ingest a bug that was showed with this stuff after its eventual demise? I would feel better knowing if I spray and let it wonder off if it can harm pets if they come in contact with insect that was recently sprayed or dead from spray. I may consider a torch light to just be done with them
