Types Of Las Vegas Scorpions
Arizona Bark Scorpion
By far the most dangerous. They love to hide under tree bark, palm trees, leaves and debris. Bark scorpions are the only climbing scorpions. The sting by the bark scorpion can cause an allergic reaction that can be fatal to the very young or old. The venom is neurotoxic and can cause numbness at the sting site, fever, increased heart rate, restlessness and other symptoms. They are small in size. Adults can reach almost two inches in length and have long thin pincers.
Giant Desert Hairy Scorpion
Much larger than it’s cousin, the Arizona Bark Scorpion, and gets over five inches long. Their venom is considered weak, but if stung you may get some swelling. If you have reactions to insect bites or stings be extra cautious. They are very dark on their back and head.
To prevent stinging encounters with Scorpions, do not leave shoes, boots, clothing items, or wet towels outdoors where Scorpions can hide. Shake towels around the swimming pool and shake all clothing and shoes before putting them on. Wear gloves when working in the yard. Wear shoes outdoors, especially during the evening hours. A portable black light may be used to survey for Scorpions in and around the home. Scorpions glow brightly under black light and are therefore easily found and removed.
