There are many species of spiders in the Las Vegas Valley. Elimination of spiders in your household is a job that we take very seriously. The dry climate lends itself very well to the survival of these 8 legged crawlers. Here at Delcon our most common spider calls are for the infamous Black Widow spider. This predator can be dangerous and potentially lethal in rare cases. Great care should be taken when dealing with these spiders.
The Arizona Bark Scorpion is the most common here in Las Vegas and Henderson. It is poisonous and potentially deadly for small animals and children. Scorpions have “hairs” on their legs and other body parts that are extremely sensitive to vibrations in the air. To avoid the extreme desert heat of the daytime they will shelter in the shade and come out at night to hunt for food. Unfortunately sometimes the shade that the scorpion finds may be in your house!While most scorpions are solitary creatures, the Arizona Bark Scorpion can gather in packs of 20 to 30 during winter months. Also notable is that they are the only scorpion that can climb walls. The Arizona Bark Scorpion can be found in many places thanks to its superb climbing ability. This scorpion is not limited to hiding under rocks or in crevices. It can just as easily be found in a tree, garage or dark closet. Here at Delcon we have over 20 years experience in dealing with scorpions in Las Vegas.
