Because of it’s uncanny ability to climb, the bark scorpion can be found “hanging around,” in many places. In fact, the Arizona Bark scorpion prefers to rest and ambush from the head-down position, and is often seen climbing or sitting high above the ground; in trees or on rock walls.
Not only are they discovered under rocks or in rock crevices, bark scorpions can also be found inside Arizona homes, often trapped in bathroom sinks or tubs. As well, Phoenix scorpion control experts warn that the bark scorpion can climb walls and will sometimes hide close to the ceiling, in rooms and bedroom closets.
Like most other members of their species, the bark scorpion is a predator. They regularly consume all types of insects, spiders, centipedes, and even some of the other scorpions in Phoenix, Arizona. Unless preyed upon by large centipedes, tarantulas, lizards, birds (especially owls), or bats, a bark scorpion will typically live approximately 2 to 6 years.
