Arizona scorpions are a serious nuisance, but most people who live here deal with them at some point. It’s unfortunate because they can get into your house, your property, or even invade your business. T he sting of a scorpion can be painful and in some rare cases be serious (of medical importance) in the case of elderly, small pets, or young children . So what’s the best solution for getting rid of scorpions when they’ve invaded your space? A good solution starts with a solid understanding of the problem.

What Is A Scorpion?

When they’re in your house, scorpions can be hard to spot and easily mistaken for other types of bugs. However, you can tell if something is a scorpion because of its arched tail , usually tipped in a stinger, and its coloration. Scorpions can range from yellow to black, and measure about two inches long. They’re mostly nocturnal and hide in dark places like under the bed, at the edge of your cabinets, or in your garden. There are several different types of scorpions in Arizona, with the most common being desert scorpions and Arizona bark scorpions . Most aren’t poisonous, but they can sting, much like a bee or a wasp.
