Scorpions in RaleighScorpions are predatory arachnids in the order Scorpiones. All species of arachnids, including spiders, have eight legs. Unlike spiders, scorpions possess a discernable segmented tail and a couple of claws similar to that of a crab called pedipalps. It would be easy to assume that all scorpions are the same since they share a similar appearance. Still, in reality, each scorpion family is distinct from one another, including the frightful-looking family of whip scorpions. Although a scorpion sting can be painful and for some cause allergic reactions, the vast majority of the species do not pose much threat to humans.

In most cases, if the individual who was stung is a healthy adult, medical treatment is not needed. Late at night is the best time to check for scorpions due to the presence of fluorescent chemicals in their cuticle if spotted with wavelengths of ultraviolet light such as that produced by a black light they gleam a vivid blue-green color.
