If you see a bark scorpion, you know you are looking at a threat. The way it spreads its front claws and readies its venomous tail is enough to give most anyone pause. If the space under your door is 1/16 of an inch, bark scorpions can slide inside. If you get stung, you will be in for a nightmare. Bark scorpions are the most venomous scorpion in America. People who have been stung compare the feeling to being electrocuted, over and over again. In addition to severe pain, you may feel numbness, tingling and you might even vomit. There is also a chance for immobility, meaning that if your leg gets stung, you might not be able to use it for a few hours. Even though the sting of a bark scorpion is extremely painful, almost everyone recovers. This is something that cannot be said about the next pest on the list.
Her inky black body and vivid red hour glass is a warning. Black widow venom is dangerous. Her venom is full of neurotoxins, which turns your own nervous system against you. Your muscles will cramp, your blood pressure will skyrocket, and you may have difficulty breathing. Black widows are the most venomous spider in America. If you get bit you should always seek medical attention. Their bites are scary, but will only happen if the spider is threatened. Unfortunately, black widows like to build their nests in garages and sheds. If you put your hand into something an accidentally grab the black widow you will get bit. The next pest might not have any venom, but it carries something much worse.
Bacteria, viruses, pathogens, and parasites are spread by mice. If you get an infestation in your home, your risk of getting sick is high. Mice transmit illnesses from bites, urine, feces, lice, mites, and fleas. One of the most dangerous sicknesses spread by deer mice is Hantavirus. Thirty-eight percent of people that get infected with Hantavirus will die from it. The disease is spread through air borne particles of mouse droppings and urine. If you breathe in the particles the virus goes straight into your lungs. The virus causes your lungs to fill with fluid. You should never sweep rodent droppings, because you will make the virus airborne.
