When the rains come to Malibu, people freak out.

“There’s water coming out of the sky, freak out!” they’ll say.

Many Malibu residents have never seen one, but scorpions are surprisingly common in Malibu and while none of the local species are considered dangerous, they can deliver a painful sting.

Often described as bugs, scorpions are actually arthropods, and are more closely related to spiders than they are to true insects. 

Scorpions occasionally turn up inside a house or garage, but most encounters occur outdoors and sting reports tend peak in late summer, when humans are more likely to be outside at night and to go barefoot.

A born and bred New Yorker, current Malibu resident Ita Olsen learned at an early age the persuasive power of speech and inflection.

“When I was 14, I knew I had a New York accent,” Olsen said, laughing. “I remember talking to my teachers, my classmates, everyone around me, and trying to categorically improve my accent. I did it systematically. Years later that was what helped me design my own program.”
