D.B , most people whom live in Az do not have issues with snakes because they live within city limits. The concern for having them in your yard or home is when you live near outer city limits by the mountains or along the desert portions. I've not had a snake at my home or yard & I'm near the desert territory & mountains. Over the years living here in Az I've encountered scorpions, lizards daily but they don't cause concern. The biggest threat is the periodic bobcat that comes to or our home resting on the roof of the house. I did have a road runner that grew up with my dog & the two played chasing each other in the back yard daily for @ 7 yrs til it disappeared one day. I'd recommend making a trip to Az. I'm sure you'd love it here as most do. The rare occasion with critters here are what makes Az unique but the year round sunshine being able to enjoy each day is great if you prefer the hot weather. Az is summer time temps approx 9 months a year.

Scorpions, yes.
Where are you coming from?
I've never seen any of the other animals you've listed. I've never heard of that either.
But, sorry, yes on scorpions.

AST I've seen scorpions, snakes, & tarantulas in homes here in Mesa & other parts of the valley. Mostly on the outer parts of the city but yes those critters sneak in to our homes from time to time. Still Az is the most beautiful state to live in & I wouldn't trade it for any other place to live... You will love it here!
D.B How do you get rid of the snakes? I seriously can't handle that. I'm an east coast girl and I've only seen one snake, in one house ever - and that house was situated way back in the woods.
