The Best Way To Stay Safe From Scorpions In Phoenix, AZ

No pests are welcome on your Phoenix, Chandler, and Mesa, AZ area property, but the worst ones are those that can cause you physical harm and even put you in the hospital. In the deserts of Arizona, we've got a couple of different kinds of venomous pests to watch out for. We're focusing on one of the most common and the ones that frequently choose to nest in our yards: scorpions.

How To Spot Scorpions

While there are several species of native scorpions we specialize in, the most common local scorpion is the Arizona bark scorpion, which is known for its highly venomous, painful stings. While they tend to avoid people and pets, bark scorpions can and will sting if they feel threatened. That's why it's important to be on the lookout for these pests, which you can identify by the following traits:


Also called brown bark scorpions, Arizona bark scorpions typically grow to a few inches in length once fully mature. However, young scorpions can be much smaller, meaning they can fit into tight spaces and even squeeze through cracks in the wall.


Brown bark scorpions get their name from their color and appearance. While they are mostly brown, they can range from light to dark and some can even appear yellow.


Scorpions are generally known for their long curved tails equipped with stingers and their large front claws. While they look quite different from a spider, scorpions are actually arachnids, not insects.

The Dangers Scorpions Bring

One of the biggest problems with scorpions is how hard they are to spot. Not only do they blend in with their surroundings, but they often make underground nests where they hide during the day and only emerge at night to hunt. That means you're not likely to notice the scorpion populations on your Arizona property until it's too late, which can lead to some serious dangers:


Brown bark scorpions blend into the desert's brown stone and sand, so you can easily miss them if you don't know what to look for.


Those who don't notice a scorpion until it's too late often pay the price of their stings. With Arizona bark scorpions, this venom is potent enough to cause serious side effects that require immediate medical attention.


Every pest problem is only made worse by the fact that they breed quickly and in large numbers; scorpions are no different, meaning a few scorpions on your property can quickly turn into a full-on infestation.
