You can spot scorpions at night by shining a UV light on them. There are several theories as to why they glow, but scientists have not come to a consensus.

  1. This is how we perform scorpion services along with the typical conventional treatments. Go out a night with a UV light, some grabbers, and a bucket.

    Not all pest control is spraying pesticides 🙂

  2. I watched the video five times trying to see the scorpion before the uv light hits it…. and I failed each time. This is why I can’t live where creatures like this exist.

  3. Not a scientist or expert, but I feel like the most logical explanation as to why they glow is that they evolved to reflect UV light rays since they are predominantly in desert environments where the sun beats down constantly and hard.
