The bark scorpion’s habitat is the desert, where it can be found in trees or beneath rocks during the day. Unfortunately, as Arizona scorpion control can attest to, the Arizona bark scorpion is also often found inside homes. Landscaped yards provide the bark scorpion with the humidity necessary for comfort, and they are able to enter homes through spaces smaller than 1/8th of an inch.
Bark scorpions are much more venomous than other scorpions and they also hold a few other interesting characteristics. One reason it’s important to contact a scorpion exterminator when dealing with bark scorpions is because, unlike other species, they tend to live in packs. Chandler pest control should handle bark scorpions in your home as there are often as many as 30 of them together. Another difference is their ability to scale walls, trees and other vertical surfaces. It is because of this they can enter homes more easily. The problem is usually more than the average homeowner can handle and they need the help of Arizona scorpion control.
The venom from an Arizona bark scorpion causes intense pain, tingling and numbness. The area where the sting occurred may become temporarily paralyzed. Some people may also briefly experience difficulty breathing. Most of the symptoms from the sting last 1-3 days. Death from the bark scorpion’s venom is a rare occurrence, and usually only happens with people who have immune disorders, or with small children.
Clean the sting with soap and water, apply a cool washcloth and take a pain-killer such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen and then call or visit your doctor.
Your best bet is to try to avoid bark scorpion stings, and you should always contact a scorpion exterminator to deal with any scorpions you might spot in your home. Chandler pest control services can help create scorpion barriers so you can keep them out of your house.
