Scorpion Control Mesa

Scorpions are on every content except Antarctica and they can exist  in many habitats.  Scorpions are in the Arachnid class, like spiders.  Scorpions  have four pairs of legs and an external skeleton with a segmented body.  Believe it or not there are  more than 70 species in the United States and 1500 species of scorpions world wide.  All types of scorpions  have a pair of pincers and a long, segmented tail that curls upward and a venomous stinger on the end and an appearance as a  crablike with four pairs of legs.

Unfortunately Scorpions are predators—but this isn’t always bad as they kill all  types of insects, spiders, centipedes, crickets, etc.  Larger scorpions can even eat small lizards, snakes and mice.  Scorpions  capture their target prey with their pincers and  paralyze them with their venom.   What happens next is not pretty.  Scorpions  spray their capture food with an acid spray that dissolves tissues, this allows the scorpion to suck up the remains of their prey.

Only about 25 species have enough venom to be dangerous to humans, even though all scorpions are venomous. Generally there are many species of scorpions living throughout the Southwestern Desert but there are basically 3 species prevalent in the Mesa, Arizona area.
