SCORPIONS – ONE OF THE PESKIEST PESTS IN LAS VEGAS

 

When you ask residents of Las Vegas which pest they dread the most the answer most of the time is scorpions. From Boulder City to Centennial Hills scorpions can get into your home and all of a sudden you have an infestation.

 

The two most common scorpions in Nevada are desert scorpions and bark scorpions – the bark scorpion is the main problem around Summerlin, Henderson and the rest of the areas that make up Las Vegas because their stings can be deadly if not treated.

 

They are easily recognized with eight legs, oversized claws and stinger-armed tails. They usually feed on small insects. Since they are small and blend with landscaping they can be missed and accidentally stepped on – so it is advised to wear shoes at all times. The popularity of irrigated lawns, and other systems which increase environmental humidity in residential areas, has led to a massive increase in the number of these pests.

 

Bark scorpions hide during the heat of the day, typically under rocks, wood piles, or tree bark. Bark scorpions do not burrow, and are commonly found in homes, requiring only 1/16 of an inch for entry. An interesting trait of the scorpion is they become fluorescent under ultraviolet lights such as blacklights. This is used by many pest control experts to find these pests and eliminate them.
