Are Scorpions Dangerous?
There are many different species of scorpions in the US, varying in size, color, and venom potency. The venom present in their iconic hooked tail is used for hunting down their food and protecting itself, which means that these animals typically only sting humans if they feel threatened. In most healthy adults, stings can cause swelling and pain at the puncture site, but nothing fatal. However, severe effects can occur in children and the elderly, so if you or a loved one has been stung, and is having trouble swallowing, or dealing with sweating, vomiting, irregular heartbeat, or blurred vision, contact a medical professional right away.
5 tips to keep scorpions away from your property:
- Properly seal any cracks or gaps around your property, including caulking and weather-stripping doors, windows, and spaces where water lines enter your home.
- Limit overgrown vegetation by keeping trees and bushes pruned and grass mowed.
- Remove piles of construction materials, firewood, or brush near your space.
- Eliminate standing water around your property.
- Inspect dark isolated spaces regularly, including cabinets, garages, and utility closets.
