2011: A Record Year For Scorpion Stings

According to the Banner Poison and Drug Information Center in Phoenix, 2011 will set a record level for scorpion stings in one year. In 2010, the center logged 8,718 scorpion exposures.

Doctors at the Banner center say the total for 2011 will be about 10,000 stings throughout Maricopa County. Include the rest of the scorpion stings throughout the state reported by the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center in Tucson, and we're talking some serious numbers.
