Anyone living in Las Vegas is no stranger to bark scorpions. While the area is prone to many types of scorpions, the bark scorpion is known as the most poisonous type in the entire nation. Also known as Arizona bark scorpions, their venom can be extremely dangerous to anyone attacked by one of these fast-moving creatures. At Western Exterminator of Las Vegas, we know how frightening bark scorpions can be and are proud to be industry leaders in controlling them. Treating these dangerous pests requires specialized treatments and need to be handled in a professional manner.
The Dangers of Bark Scorpions
Unlike most types of scorpions, bark scorpions prefer to travel in packs of up to 30 members, making their presence all the more of a threat when found near homes. It’s important to take into account what precisely is so dangerous about bark scorpions:
- The venom possessed by bark scorpions is the most potent scorpion venom in North America.
- Although they aren’t aggressive and seek to avoid human contact altogether, people are still occasionally stung.
- When stung, symptoms often last for up to three days and may include severe pain, numbness in the affected limb, and convulsions. While rare, death has been a result of bark scorpion stings.
- Professional medical attention must always be sought immediately when stung by a bark scorpion.

It’s important to act quickly in order to keep them from spreading and to prevent putting yourself or your family in danger.
