Are there venomous/poisonous scorpions in Georgia?

Question: Are there venomous/poisonous scorpions in Georgia?

Answer: Georgia scorpions are not dangerous, not more than a wasp sting. There is just one dangerous species in North America: the bark scorpion. It has very potent venom. For the most part, the worst result of a scorpion sting would be an allergic reaction to the venom, much like a bee or wasp sting for some people.
