Scorpions come in many shapes and sizes, but their key characteristics are their six spindly legs and large front pincers. Their extended tail with venomous barb is their primary means of offense. Some scorpion stings will merely be painful; however, others can mean a trip to the hospital (such as the bark scorpion). Scorpions are especially prevalent in Arizona, and if you should find one in your home, exercise caution and give us a call. Burns would much prefer you leave the handling of any potentially harmful creatures to us!
