Where Do Scorpions Live?
There are at least 1,300 different species of scorpions in the world; about 90 of them live in the US. Most scorpions live in the west… In fact, only 5 out of 90 scorpion species naturally live EAST of the Mississippi! The most venomous scorpions in the U.S. in Greater Phoenix AZ!
Scorpions live on ALL the continents except for Antarctica! They’re much higher in number throughout the desert and semi desert climates. Scorpions also live in tropical and subtropical areas, savannas, rain forests, grasslands, at high elevations like in the Alps, Himalayas, and the Andes mountains.
Out of 1,300 scorpions in the world… ONLY 25 species are dangerous. ONLY ONE scorpion species in the US is potentially life threatening – The Arizona Bark Scorpion
During the day scorpions prefer to reside: under tree bark, stones and logs, in concrete or rock crevices, inside concrete expansion joints, around the foundation of homes, and inside wall voids. Some scorpions also favor burrows. A Hadrurus scorpion was discovered TWENTY FEET below the surface in an arroyo! (Arroyos, common to the south-west, are small water- ways that have steep sides and a flat floor. They’re usually dry except for after heavy rains.)
Scorpions are nocturnal and come out to hunt feed and mate at night! Most scorpions are solitary in nature, but during the winter Arizona Bark Scorpions gather to nest through the winter months.
