There are 36 species of scorpions in Arizona. All species can sting, causing some immediate pain, with little or no local swelling or redness. Only one species of scorpions will cause further medical problems: the Bark Scorpion.
These symptoms usually occur in the first 2-3 hours. Children under 10 years are more likely to develop severe symptoms. Not all of these signs and symptoms, listed in order of severity, will occur in every person stung.
