See also the Snakes and Spiders entries In countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Tunisia, and Morocco, there are several thousand cases of scorpion envenomation every year, often involving curious children whose hands or feet force the scorpion into a situation where it has to defend itself. In Brazil alone during a three-year period there were 6,000 reported scorpion envenomations, 100 of which ended in death. In the United States during 2006, more than 16,000 scorpion stings were recorded and in a single Moroccan province (El Kelaa des Sraghna) almost 12,000 stings were reported in a five-year period (2001– 2005).

The component of recluse spider venom primarily responsible for killing cells and causing necrosis is an enzyme known as sphingomyelinase D. Initially, the bite is painless or causes a mild stinging sensation. However, this is the calm before the storm and after 2–8 hours painful blistering and swelling develop at the site of the bite. After about three days an ulcer has developed with a central portion composed of dead and dying tissue. The effect of the recluse spider venom on the tissues is to cause systemic symptoms (systemic loxoscelism), including joint pain, chills, fever, rash, nausea, and vomiting, followed by blood abnormalities, febrile seizures, coma, and acute renal failure in rare cases.

Scabiei. For example, the variety encountered on humans is S. scabiei var. hominis, while the type found on horses is S. scabiei var. equi. These varieties are morphologically indistinguishable from one another and they certainly have no problem parasitizing domesticated animals other than the species they are typically found on, so it remains to be seen if they are genuinely varieties or simply all members of the same species in the very early stages of speciation. The evolutionary origins of these mites is very poorly known, but must be very interesting as they may be an ancient parasite of humans that has taken up residence on all the animals our species has domesticated in the last few thousand years.
