Scorpions are much more than just an amazing ’80s rock band. Scorpions are a venomous arthropod that is closely related to spiders, mites, and ticks. These intimidating insects have a stinger located on their tail that is used to hunt prey and for defense. These stingers contain venom that paralyzes their prey, leaving them unable to move and vulnerable for attack enabling the scorpion to feed. Out of over 2,000 species of scorpions, somewhere between thirty to forty species carry enough venom to kill a human.
Most scorpions usually grow between 2-3 inches long. Besides the stingers attached to their tails, they also have two pincher claws that resemble claws of a crab. Scorpions are nocturnal animals that sneak up on their prey at night and they have been found to glow underneath an ultraviolet light. Scorpion prey include various insects, spiders, lizards, and mice.
The best way to handle a scorpion is to not have to deal with them at all. Scorpions are burrowing arachnids that make their homes under rocks and within piles of debris. A good prevention for scorpions is to keep piles of wood or debris away from homes and to always wear protective work gloves when moving the piles or cleaning up the debris.
