Scorpions are arachnids that belong to the class Arachnida, order Scorpiones. These predatory creatures are equipped with a pair of pincers (pedipalps) and a venomous stinger located at the end of their segmented tail. Scorpions are commonly found in dry, arid regions around the world, with some species adapted to various climates and habitats.
Scorpions: Potential Risks
While not all scorpions are highly venomous, some species can pose a significant threat to humans and pets. It’s crucial to identify the presence of scorpions in your surroundings to minimize the potential risks. Common symptoms of scorpion stings include localized pain, swelling, numbness, and, in severe cases, systemic reactions that require immediate medical attention.
Scorpions are found widely throughout the Coachella Valley. Scorpions are known to glow when they are exposed to certain wavelengths of ultraviolet light such as the black light. About 25 species of scorpions are known to have venom capable of killing a human being. All scorpions are capable of penetrating human skin to deliver a sharp, unpleasant sting.
To effectively combat scorpion infestations, it’s essential to be able to identify the signs of their presence. Here are some key indicators that you may have a scorpion problem:
Sightings: Spotting scorpions, especially during nighttime, is an obvious sign of their presence. They may be found in basements, attics, garages, and other dark areas.
Shed Exoskeletons: Scorpions molt their exoskeletons as they grow, leaving behind empty shells. These exuviae can serve as evidence of scorpion activity.
Tracks and Droppings: Scorpions leave behind tracks and droppings similar to other pests. Look for small, claw-like marks or dark, pellet-shaped droppings as potential indicators.
Hiding Places: Scorpions prefer to hide in cool, dark areas during the day. Check for their presence in crevices, under rocks, in woodpiles, and around outdoor structures.
