The Scorpion Wrangler

Bark scorpion (Buthidae) is a common sight in Arizona. Many people would kill them either by force or with chemical spray, which would then lead to over-population of roaches and crickets.

The safest way to handle it is to scoop it into a glass container and relocate it. Using a small stick to pin the scorpion's body down would prevent it from striking with its stinger.
