What kind of bug is a scorpion?
The scorpion is an insect of the predatory arachnid order of arthropods. They have a pair of grasping forceps and a narrow, segmented tail, often curved forward over the back and terminated with a stinger. They live mostly in deserts, but have adapted to a wide range of climates.
They feed mainly on insects and other invertebrates. They use their pincers to hold and kill their prey and use their poisonous stinger both to kill their prey and to defend themselves. Their exoskeleton contains fluorescent chemicals that glow under ultraviolet light.
The vast majority of scorpion species are not a serious threat to humans, except for some species whose venom does kill hundreds of lives a year.
The desert climate of Las Vegas benefits its appearance especially in spring and fall.
They usually are seen at night but are easy to identify.
What kinds of Scorpions are there in Las Vegas?
In Las Vegas we have the bark scorpion. It is a nocturnal aracnid and particularly well adapted to the desert. They usually hide during the heat of the day, typically under rocks, wood piles, or tree bark. They are also commonly found in homes.
The Arizona bark scorpion is the most venomous scorpion in North America, and its venom can cause severe pain in adult humans, typically lasting between 24 and 72 hours.

How do I get rid of them?
Scorpions are a fairly common pest in the Las Vegas area because of our warm climate. There are around 2,000 different species of scorpions found throughout the world. Luckily, there are only a few common in Las Vegas, and most of those aren’t particularly dangerous.
The easiest way to find hidden scorpions is by searching them out with an ultraviolet (UV) blacklight. Turn off the lights after the sun has gone down, and shine the blacklight on piles of linens, in your pantry, and other dark and quiet places scorpions may be hiding.
