Summer is finally upon us. Among all the summer vacations, family reunions, picnics, and days at the pool; something dangerous lurks. Desert cities like Las Vegas, NV, St. George, UT, Phoenix, AZ, and Mesa, AZ house a few unique and even dangerous pests. Here are three desert pests to watch out for this summer:

Desert Recluses

(Photo credit: Lynette S.)[/caption]   Commonly confused with the Brown Recluse spider, the Desert Recluse spider is equally as dangerous. Desert recluses are found in Southern Nevada, Southwest Utah, and Western Arizona. Not too many Desert Recluses invade the actual cities of Mesa or Phoenix; however, both cities do harbor the Arizona Brown Spider which is also in the recluse family. These recluse spiders hide in dark places. Desert Recluse spiders are tan in color, and have a dark brown violin shaped spot on their head. These spiders are not aggressive in nature, but do bite when bothered. Many homeowners in desert cities are bitten when they accidently touch the venomous spiders. When bitten, a victim will experience pain, swelling, and redness around the site. The site will begin to blister, causing open lesions and sores. Bites can take months to heal and even require skin grafts. Those with compromised immune systems, and the young and elderly, are at the most risk to a Desert Recluse bite. Death can be a result on rare occasions.

Arizona Bark Scorpions

If you live in a desert city, you’ve seen one of these scorpions before. While most other species of scorpion live solitarily, these scorpions congregate in groups. When you see one of these scorpions in your Arizona, Nevada, or Utah home; there are bound to be more. Feeding on crickets and roaches near your desert home, these nocturnal pests ambush their prey. Typically, Arizona Bark scorpions come into your home looking for water and refuge from the elements. It is then when unfortunate encounters occur. Hiding inside your shoe, or underneath a discarded article of clothing or towel; these pests sting you when you accidently encounter them. Their stings cause an unpleasant reaction that can include nausea, numbness, vomiting, breathing difficulties or convulsions.

Sun Spiders

Sun spiders, also known as camel spiders or wind scorpions, are neither spiders nor scorpions and have no venom. They do however, exhibit very aggressive behavior and may attack for no reason at all. They can run up to 10 mph and have large, powerful jaws that can produce an irregularly large bite. Antibiotic treatment is necessary if a bite becomes infected.
