The most common scorpion found in Arizona, is the Arizona Bark Scorpion. These scorpions also happen to be the most dangerous. These Bark Scorpions commonly inflict painful stings; some of which can cause unfortunate symptoms or reactions… including death in rare cases.

Arizona Bark scorpions reach lengths of about two inches. They are yellowish-tan in color. They eat insects like crickets and roaches, and enter Arizona homes looking for water. These scorpions are not aggressive, and are actually pretty docile. They sting when they feel threatened… like when you step on them or roll over on top of one while you sleep.
