In Arizona, there are 3 dozen types of scorpions. The Bark Scorpion is the most dangerous and can cause significant medical problems. To identify the Bark Scorpion, they are smaller, light tan to dark brown, .5 to 1 inch in length. They like palm trees and decorative bark. It's also a climber, can go up walls and across ceilings!
What I've always been told is - the smaller the scorpion, the more potent the venom. Generally, you have site pain and local swelling and redness - which sounds bad enough to me! I always shake out shoes and garden gloves before inserting body parts!
Signs and Symptoms of a Sting (generally within 2-3 hours of being stung):
Immediate pain at the site and sensitivity to touch.
Numbness and tingling - which can travel
Possibility of vision issues and/or uncoordinated eye movements
Difficulty swallowing and a feeling like your tongue is swelling; drooling
Being stung by a scorpion is no silly matter. If you suspect you have been stung by a scorpion, please call Poison Control 1-800-222-1222
