Facts about Scorpions
Scorpions are closely related to spiders and ticks. There are 70 species of scorpions in the United States. The most dangerous is the Arizona Bark Scorpion which is found in the American southwest. They are nocturnal pests, meaning they hide during the day and are most active at night. They feed primarily on insects, especially crickets, spiders and cockroaches. However, scorpions can survive months without food, as long as they have a steady supply of water.
