Scorpion Pest Services
There is one type of scorpion in the entire western U.S that has venom harmful to humans. This scorpion is the one we see the most here in Arizona: the bark scorpion. The Arizona bark scorpion can live up to 7 years and if left uncontrolled the infestation will continue to grow. Bark scorpions are known for being incredible climbers. They are able to climb walls and ceilings, making it possible for them to drop into beds and into cribs. The sting of a bark scorpion is the most dangerous to small children, elderly adults and anyone who is allergic to the venom. Antivenom is available to treat these stings.
