Scorpions in Chattanooga

 

Scorpions are predatory arachnids belonging to the order of Scorpiones. All arachnids, such as spiders, have eight legs. Unlike spiders, they have a noticeably segmented tail, and a pair of crab-like pinchers called pedipalps. You might deem that all scorpions are chiefly the same, only varying in size and color, but that is far from actuality. Some families of scorpions are unique, including the bizarre-looking family of whip scorpions. All scorpions are capable of delivering a venomous sting, but the vast majority of the species do not constitute a serious threat to humans.

A sting from a scorpion to a healthy adult would unlikely require medical treatment. Due to the presence of fluorescent chemicals in the scorpion’s cuticle, they glow a bright blue-green when flashed by wavelengths of ultraviolet light, such as that produced by a black light. If you’ve seen these creatures around your Chattanooga home or property, review the Bulwark guide on how to get rid of whip scorpions and everything you should know about them.
