I know that some people may be wondering why scorpion should not be killed.
But what if I can prove you wrong that in the nearest future scorpions will be very valuable to humans.
In this article I will give reasons why scorpions should not be killed but before we continue let me give you a brief description of scorpions.
Scorpions are predatory arachnids of the order Scorpiones. They have eight legs and are easily recognized by the pair of grasping pedipalps (those two claws you can see) and the narrow, segmented tail, often carried in a characteristic forward curve over the back, ending with a venomous stinger.
All scorpions possess venomous stings, but in the hundreds of scorpions species out there today only 25 species of scorpions possess very poisonous venom that can kill human almost at an instant. Most common scorpions sting or venom doesn’t cause much harm to healthy adults.
Now let me proceed to the main reason why you shouldn’t kill scorpions.
Do you know that scorpion venom can be used to treat lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and even help with heart transplant?.
Yes, when the venom is being extracted with the right equipment the venom is powerful enough to treat these diseases.
Scientists are even assuming in the nearest future, scorpion venom might be used to cure cancer but for now, it is used in the treatment of cancer to reduce the spread and fatality.
Here’s extra information, The most expensive liquid in the world is scorpion’s venom which goes for a whopping $39 million per gallon, which is equivalent to over 15 billion nairas.
Well, this doesn’t mean that when you see a scorpion on your arm or body you should then smile and leave it to continue creeping around you, you know what to do, but you can just leave it alone if you see it comes nowhere around your environment or near your vicinity.
