Scorpions in Prescott

Scorpions are predatory arachnids in the order Scorpiones. spiders and all other arachnids have eight legs. A couple of differences between spiders and scorpions is that scorpions have that noticeable segmented tail, and pinchers resembling that of a crab called pedipalps. By looking at different scorpion species, it would be easy to think that besides their size and color, they are the same. Still, scorpion species are much more unique, especially for the unusual-looking family of whip scorpions. All scorpions have a lethal sting, but the majority of the species do not constitute a dire threat to humans.

In most cases, healthy adults do not need any medical treatment after being stung. One striking observation with scorpions is a result caused by fluorescent chemicals within the scorpion’s cuticle. When scorpions are exposed to specific wavelengths of ultraviolet light, such as that produced by a black light, their body illuminates a blue-green color.
