Some creepy-crawlies are just scarier than others. Scorpions look terrifying. They can get into anything; their stings hurt and can even kill. And the most deadly scorpion in the world is native to Arizona.
It’s said that fear is a result of ignorance. Even after you know more about scorpions, they will continue to be scary. Here are some scorpion facts worth knowing:
5 Arizona Bark Scorpion Facts
1. Arizona bark scorpions are the most deadly scorpions on earth. They have a wide range of movement and can be found almost anywhere in your home. Have you ever been terrified by a flying cockroach? Just wait until a bark scorpion jumps at (or on) you. When that happens, your range of movement will be impressive as well.
2. It’s almost impossible to get rid of scorpions. We know they out-survived dinosaurs. Today, these hardy creatures have been found living quite happily in and near nuclear test sites. While most scorpions are solitary creatures, bark scorpions travel in packs of 20-30 scorpions. Thanks to new technology, getting rid of scorpions will soon become a once-in-a-lifetime event.
3. Scorpions are predators. Forget “They’re more scared of you than you are of them.” Scorpions will sting and eat each other. That’s pretty evil, so they don’t have much reason to be afraid of you. The bark scorpion is quite small but can squeeze into space the width (yes, the width) of a credit card. That explains why the space between your home and foundation is no challenge for scorpions.
4. Scorpions have several sets of eyes (as many as 4 pair) but terrible eyesight. They are very nearly blind. “No scorpion sets out to harm a person; human beings and scorpions blunder into conflict,” says one scientific reference. Of all the scorpion facts, the most pervading fact is: We don’t care if it’s an accident. We don’t want to tangle with a scorpion.
5. There is a very real fear of scorpions called “arachnophobia.” It’s no joke. Many people fear scorpions and some psychologists believe it’s a survival skill. We may be genetically programmed to fear animals that can harm us, and that just makes good sense. For some, getting rid of scorpions forever can change your life.
