Las Vegas has its fair share of pests coming into your home, and one pest you need to keep a watchful eye out for is the scorpion. There are many different Nevada scorpions that you might find on your property, but fortunately, there are things you can do to stop them. Scorpions look, and are, dangerous, so contact Anderson Pest Control for Las Vegas pest control that'll keep your property scorpion-free and safe.

What Kind of Scorpions Live In Las Vegas?

There are multiple different Nevada scorpions that you can end up finding on your property, and though they vary in the dangers they bring, they all can still pose some threat.

The main types of scorpions that you can find are:

  • Arizona bark scorpion
  • Stripe-tailed scorpion
  • Desert hairy scorpion
  • Emperor scorpion

Of these different types of scorpions, the one you should be most concerned about is the Arizona bark scorpion. Other scorpions still have enough venom to trigger allergic reactions in sensitive individuals if they are stung, and in others, a sting can still hurt a lot and bring some unpleasant side effects, but Arizona bark scorpion stings can potentially be fatal.

If you see any of these scorpions, it is smart to look into how to get rid of scorpions, but it is especially so if you spot dangerous scorpions such as the Arizona bark scorpion. It is easily distinguishable by its tan color, which can be yellowish at times. These dangerous scorpions also appear thinner than other scorpions, which includes their tail and pincers as well.

Can Scorpions Climb Walls?

Getting rid of scorpions can be tricky. These pests get into your home in a variety of ways, including by climbing. Scorpions are good climbers and can be found climbing on trees, bushes, walls, or even up your bedding. It is smart to learn about what attracts these different groups of scorpions to your property to stop this from happening and protect your property.

What Attracts Scorpions To My Home?

Many think these pests love dry conditions as they come from the dry southwest region, but in reality, groups of scorpions actually prefer, if not outright require, moisture to live. Scorpions come to your property in the first place because moisture is present and there are enough pests for them to eat. Scorpions like to eat other scorpions, insects, and even hunt spiders.

Because of this, some of the best ways to stop scorpions from coming into your home are to remove any excess moisture in your home and seal off any potential openings for scorpions as well as their prey. It would also be smart to remove any bed skirts and do not let your bedding touch the floor at night so that these dangerous pests do not climb onto your bed when you're sleeping. Before any of this happens, though, you should contact the professionals at Anderson Pest Control to keep your property scorpion-free.
