Night Hunting for Bark Scorpions in the Arizona Desert

You can find scorpions at night by using a black light.

In this entry of the STEM Journals, Brad Piccirillo braves the dark of night to meet up with Randy Babb of Arizona Game and Fish to hunt for scorpions.

Scorpions are nocturnal and the best way to find them is to look for them at night. They will glow if you shine a black light on them. Bark scorpions are the most venomous type in the United States and are common in the Arizona desert.
