What are scorpions?

Scorpions are a type of arachnid with more than 2,000 species found living worldwide. Scorpions are predators and feed on other scorpions, insects, and spiders. These pests are unique because they grow slowly, taking one to six years to reach maturity (depending on the species). The average life span of a scorpion is between three and five years, though some live longer. These arachnids are highly adaptable, and many scorpion species have figured out how to live near people to survive. 

One of the most common scorpion species living in the United States is the brown bark scorpion (bark scorpion).

The main characteristics of the brown bark scorpion include:

  • The length of an adult is between two and a half to three inches long.
  • Body color is brownish-yellow or tan.
  • Slender curved tails and large claws are narrower than other scorpion species.
  • Unique ability to climb up surfaces.

Are scorpions dangerous?

Yes, scorpions are dangerous. These arachnids use a venom-filled stinger on the end of their tail to defend themselves and paralyze prey. The venom that scorpions possess is strong enough to trigger allergic reactions in people. The specific individual’s sensitivity to the venom will determine how strong of an allergic reaction they will experience.

The scorpion species in the United States that poses the most significant health risks for people is the bark scorpion. Their stings are very painful and cause symptoms that include numbness, muscle twitching, convulsions, and difficulty breathing. Young children and the elderly are more likely to have a severe reaction to bark scorpion venom than a healthy adult; anyone stung by a brown bark scorpion should seek medical attention promptly.
