Scorpions are venomous and can be quite aggressive. Knowing how to find scorpions so you know when to contact a professional is key. They are quite clever and can find entry to your home through even the smallest cracks and crevices. What's more, Arizona is home to dozens of species of scorpions. As scorpions are nocturnal prey creatures, they generally will feed on insects, spiders, and even other scorpions. Larger species may also feed on small lizards, snakes, and mice. If a food source isn't available, these resourceful creatures can survive six months between meals. Most scorpions aren't aggressive hunters, preferring to lay in wait for their prey. Species of scorpions found in Arizona can include:
- Arizona Bark Scorpions
- Arizona Stripetail Scorpions
- Giant Hairy Scorpions
- Yellow Ground Scorpions
The Arizona Bark Scorpion
The Arizona Bark Scorpion is one of the most feared scorpion species. These poisonous critters are small and pale, making them extremely hard to spot. While most scorpion species are loners, the bark scorpion likes to congregate in clans of 20 to 30, making them even more frightening. When stung by the bark scorpion, an intense pain can be felt at the site of the sting. Others may begin to experience:
- Frothing at the mouth
- Difficulty breathing
- Muscle twitching
- Death, in very rare cases
An antivenom is available for severe cases, helping to lower the risk of death victims may face. Because of their aggressive and dangerous nature, dealing with the bark scorpion is best left to the professionals. If you suspect your home has become a lair for these venomous creates, call 480-354-3500 or get your free quote and keep your family safe.
Are You Creating an Optimal Habitat?
Sometimes, without realizing it, we can be creating a prime place for scorpions to congregate. If your home has any of the following, you may be at an increased risk for a scorpion infestation:
- Undisturbed areas- boxes in the attic, spare bedrooms that no one uses, curtains that are never pulled back, and more.
- Entryways- anywhere there's a crack or crevice, such as where pipes or utility lines enter your home.
- Damp or dark places- laundry rooms, bathroom cabinets, even leaving a wet towel on the ground overnight!
- Areas infested with potential prey- if there's prey, there could be scorpions!
