Types of Scorpion in Las Vegas, NV
There are over 70 species of scorpions in the United States, but not all of them pose a threat to humans. In the Las Vegas area, there are around 25 types of scorpions and most are not harmful. However, Nevada is home to the only species in the country that is deadly to people and pets. Luckily, Las Vegas Pest Control provides effective scorpion control solutions.
Despite its small size of one to two inches long, the bark scorpion is the most venomous scorpion in the United States and the only species with a deadly sting. Its color varies from a yellow-tan to a dark golden brown. These pests prefer cool, dark places and are great climbers, so check your ceilings and walls.
Desert Hairy Scorpion
The desert hairy scorpion is the largest type found in the United States, ranging up to five inches long. While the desert is its natural habit, this type of scorpion is at home in residential neighborhoods as well. This scorpion can be identified by its dark body, yellow legs, claws, and tail. They earned their name by the nature in which they approach their prey. They use the hairs to detect prey and sense chemicals given off by their prey.
The stripe-tailed scorpion isn’t difficult to identify, as just as its name indicates, it has a striped tail which is a similar length to its body, around three inches long. It’s also known as the devil scorpion. These scorpions are a bit smaller, ranging around two inches in size. They are venomous but less dangerous than other types of scorpions. A sting from a stripe-tail scorpion is similar to a bee sting.
Signs of a Scorpion Infestation
If you see one scorpion in your house or on your property, there is a good chance that there are more around. A female bark scorpion, which is the most common in Las Vegas, can give birth to 20 or more nymphs. This type of Las Vegas scorpion also travels in packs of 20 to 30 scorpions in winter, so they won’t arrive at your home alone. They won’t be dying off anytime soon either, as they typically live for six years.
