Scorpion Identification & Prevention

What You Need To Know About Scorpions In Henderson, Nevada

Scorpions are a type of arachnid that thrive in and around Henderson, Nevada. These pests live outside all around us. It is vital to stop them from making themselves comfortable in our yards and, more importantly, our homes. Use our pest guide to learn more about scorpions in Nevada, including their wants, needs, and preferred habitats.

What are scorpions?

Scorpions are arachnids, and though they may look like tiny crayfish or lobsters, they live completely on land, usually in desert areas.

Scorpions have a segmented body and a long segmented tail that curves up over their body. At the end of the tail is a curved stinger that they use to inject venom into their prey. Their venom and large claws help to capture and subdue their prey. Despite having many eyes but poor vision, these predators are exceptional hunters, relying on touch and vibrations to catch their prey.

Some of the more common types of scorpions in Henderson are the following:

  • Desert bark scorpion
  • Giant desert hair scorpion
  • Wind scorpion (sun spider) – a type of arachnid but not a true spider or scorpion
  • Brown scorpion

Because scorpions thrive in dry, desert-like conditions, Nevada is a place where home and business owners often run into these pests.

Are scorpions dangerous?

No matter the species, avoiding contact with scorpions is essential. They are a type of stinging pest and will use the stinger found at the end of the tail to defend themselves. Scorpion stings are painful, and the venom they inject triggers allergic reactions. Depending on the scorpion and the person stung, an allergic response can range from mild to life-threatening.

Partner with a pest control professional to ensure scorpions do not overrun your property and to help limit your contact with these pests. Regular home pest control services are the best defense against dangerous scorpions. If you or a family member is ever stung by a scorpion, seek medical attention immediately.

Why do I have a scorpion problem?

While scorpions prefer desert conditions, they also require a reliable water source. Our properties often provide them with water through things like dripping faucets, hoses, and air-conditioners.

Another reason scorpions are drawn to our properties is that our yards, gardens, trees, trash cans, and outdoor eating areas provide food and shelter for insects and spiders. The more insect and spider activity on a property, the more attractive it is to predatory scorpions.

Where will I find scorpions?

During the day's heat, these critters hide in an underground burrow or under things like woodpiles, rocks, landscaping ties, or trash cans. At night they emerge to hunt for their prey.

If the weather is very hot and dry or there is a lack of food outside, scorpions in Nevada will move inside our homes. Common entry points include cracks in the foundation or exterior walls, holes in screens, and gaps around windows and doors.

Once inside, they move to the damp, cool areas of a home, like bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. Scorpions tend to travel in groups, so if you spot one in or around your home, know that more are lurking nearby.
