What You Should Know If You Find A Scorpion In Your Las Vegas Home

Las Vegas offers many things to local homeowners. The fast-paced business environment abounds with energy. There are a variety of dining and entertainment opportunities in the area, and the housing market is robust. The climate is consistent and offers many great days outdoors. There are many good things that are available for residents. Unfortunately, scorpions also abound in the Las Vegas area. Scorpion encounters are increasing, and, given the fact that most of the encounters are sudden and unexpected, painful, venomous stings often result. Scorpions are natural predators and will actively move about their environment in the hunt for food. If other insects are on your property, scorpions will soon follow in order to hunt them.

The Different Kinds Of Scorpions In Las Vegas

There are many different types of scorpions in the area — approximately 25 in all — and all of them may come to visit your property sooner or later. Many of them have different habits and behaviors, but all of them are venomous and can sting. Here are some of the more common of the different area scorpions:

  • Bark scorpion: A common scorpion that is frequently found near homes, bark scorpions are great climbers and account for the majority of negative homeowner interactions.
  • Desert hairy scorpion: These heavyweights are the largest of the area's scorpions and are also considered to be one of the most venomous of all scorpions.
  • Stripe-tailed scorpion: These scorpions earn their name with distinctive tail stripes. They are considered to be one of the most aggressive scorpion species.
  • Emperor scorpion: These scorpions are notable for their dark black color. Although they look intimidating, these are one of the more docile scorpion species.

These are a few of the kinds of scorpions that you may encounter on your property. All of them are commonly encountered on area properties and in area homes. They are active hunters that can fit through small spaces, and if they make their way into your home, you are at risk of having a negative encounter with them.

The Potential Dangers Of A Scorpion's Sting

Scorpions are predators, and they actively hunt other insects. They use their venomous stings to immobilize their prey. Although their venom is very potent against prey insects, it is less effective against humans. There are still negative effects, but scorpions are rarely fatal to humans.

When scorpions sting humans, there are two major areas of effect:

  1. Local effects. This pertains to what happens immediately around the area of the sting. These effects include swelling, redness, pain, and heat. Scorpion stings are like more severe versions of wasp or bee stings.
  2. Systemic effects. This pertains to how your body responds to stings. These effects include involuntary twitching, sweating, increased blood pressure, elevated heart rate, difficulty breathing, and visual disturbances.

Why And How Scorpions Find Their Way Inside

What attracts scorpions? Scorpions are predators that feed on other insects. Their venomous stings can be used for protection but are most often used to immobilize the prey insects that they pursue. Scorpions can come into your home looking for shelter, but they are most often pursuing insects that may be inside your home. Scorpions can exploit very small openings in your home to enter. Loose-fitting doors and windows can allow scorpions in. Gaps or openings in your home can do the same. Proper scorpion control depends on also addressing the factors that attract scorpions to your home.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Chad is always punctual with his scheduled time slot visit. Provides updates each visit on if traps have been hit or not.
