We get them along with wasps, ladybugs, fire ants, spiders, etc., etc.

We don't have fire ants. We do have black widows (LOTS of them...which is interesting...you'd think a black arachnid would overheat very easily in the Sonoran Desert). Parts of AZ have lady bugs, but in Phoenix not so much. We do have the Arizona Bark Scorpion. They are fairly common, and one has to watch out for them. Reactions can range from intense pain for a day or so (followed by weeks of numbness) to death. We are attempting to eradicate them from our property, but it's hard because neighbors have them too. I think we are seeing fewer now, but they aren't gone.

Plus we have "Africanized" bees. Whenever bees are seen, people call for help because you can't tell what variety they are. If they're the domestic variety they try to remove the hive. If not, they kill them all.
