Scorpions –During periods of hot weather, scorpions can enter homes through wall voids and take shelter in cool areas like crawl spaces. They are known to sting as a defense mechanism. Humans usually experience only mild symptoms similar to those of a bee sting, but there are a handful of species such as the Arizona Bark scorpion whose sting can be fatal.
