Scorpion Human Interaction

Scorpions are feared for being venomous and deadly. Because of this, most people avoid interaction with them all together.

Scorpions possess venom, but the sting normally results in swelling and pain similar to a bee sting. There are recorded incidents of deaths caused by scorpions, and in these cases children or the elderly often are those affected. Only a few species are actually deadly to humans. In fact, most species are generally harmless to people unless they are allergic to scorpion venom.

Scorpions do not go out of their way to sting people. Their natural inclination is to flee or give a threat display when disturbed. If a sting occurs, it usually is the result of the scorpion being crushed to the skin. This can happen when putting on gloves or shoes that a scorpion has taken refuge inside.

If a person is stung, they should consult a medical professional for recommendations.
