Scorpions in Greensboro

Scorpions are predatory arachnids in the order Scorpiones. Like all arachnids, along with spiders, have eight legs. As opposed to spiders, scorpions have a discernable segmented tail, and crab-like pinchers called pedipalps. You may be surprised to know that scorpions differ in more ways than just their size and color. There are many varieties of scorpions, including the odd-looking family of whip scorpions. All scorpions have stingers that produce venom, but the vast majority of the species do not represent a profound threat to humans.

If a healthy adult has been stung, it is unlikely they would need medical treatment. When beamed with wavelengths of ultraviolet light such as that produced by a black light, scorpions will glow a luminous blue-green due to the presence of fluorescent chemicals in the cuticle. If you’ve seen these creatures around your Greensboro home or property, check out the Bulwark guide on how to get rid of whip scorpions and everything you should know about them.
