The sight of a scorpion's curved tail will send anyone into hiding for sure! But when you see these critters around your Frisco property, the last thing you want to do is run and hide. Your immediate response should be to call in Frisco pest control experts to get rid of these dangerous pests and find out why your home is attracting them.

How To Identify Striped Bark Scorpions

Of the 20 species of scorpions in Texas, the striped bark scorpion is common to Frisco. Their bodies are a light tan, somewhat yellowish color, with two wide black stripes on the top of their abdomens. Their tails are segmented and curved with a stinger at the tip to inject venom during an attack. This species is the smallest but can grow up to three inches in length!

These scorpions are nocturnal critters, so you'll likely see them at night. Additionally, these pests are carnivores and only eat meat. In the insect world, meat to scorpions would be insects like roaches, crickets, and even spiders.

If you see striped bark scorpions in your home more often than you would like, it could indicate that you have another pest problem. You could have an underlying infestation in your home that you may not be aware of.

The Dangers Of A Striped Bark Scorpion's Sting

The venom associated with a scorpion sting can be very painful, leaving you sore and even itchy for several days. But if you have severe allergic reactions to their stings, you can experience swollen limbs, fever, and more.

The thing to understand about striped bark scorpions is that they're not aggressive toward humans. Typically, when you get stung, it's because you didn't see them. Maybe you reached into one of their hiding spaces or mistakenly stepped near one, and it attacked. That reason alone is why scorpion control services are so important for Frisco residents.
