Scorpions May Be Hiding In Your Home
Scorpions have up to 100 babies a year, which means if you’ve seen one scorpion on your property, you might actually be looking at an infestation. Since these pests hide during the day, you may never know they are there. Their flat bodies make it easy for them to squeeze into your nice, cool home where they find new places to hide, feed, and breed. Some of the common scorpions found in and around Las Vegas include the following:
- Bark Scorpions
- Giant Desert Hairy Scorpions
- Northern Desert Hairy Scorpions
Enemy Number One, The Bark Scorpion
The most common type of scorpion in the Las Vegas valley is the bark scorpion. This scorpion is small, flat, and can crawl through holes as small as a paper clip. The bark scorpion can climb so you could find these scorpions in many unexpected places such as sinks, washing machines, and on walls.
The bark scorpion is the most venomous scorpion in North America, and its sting can cause extreme pain, numbness, vomiting, and temporary loss of use if stung on the hand or foot.
Desert Hairy Scorpions, The Largest Scorpion
Desert Hairy scorpions are the largest scorpion in North America, but they are less dangerous than bark scorpions. These scorpions like to dig burrows and emerge at night to hunt insects, spiders, and lizards. Although this scorpion is big, its venom is not very potent, and its sting is commonly felt to be about as painful as a honeybee‘s.
Suddenly Finding Scorpions In Your House?
Summer is the breeding season for scorpions, this means they are often trying to find a new and better home during this time and are more likely to find their way into your house. Because scorpions burrow into the ground or live in the bark around your palm trees, construction and landscape changes can force them to look for new homes. If you live near any type of construction or are currently changing your landscaping or trimming your palm trees, we recommend calling a professional pest control company.
