In this study, Diyarbakır province, where scorpion species are common, was chosen as the research area. Scorpion stings become widespread in Diyarbakır in certain periods and sometimes result in death, and investigation of Scorpio populations is very important for public health. Furthermore, Venom obtained from Scorpion venom is widely used in the medical field. Therefore, a bio-ecological study was carried out on the scorpion population, which has an intensive distribution in Diyarbakır. Scorpions are generally xerophilic (drought-loving) and therefore do not receive precipitation and are a common species of scorpion in regions with a rather arid climate. Scorpions are spread in a wide biogeography in the world. Scorpions of the genus Androctanus are particularly toxic ; Azerbaijan, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Armenia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Kuwait, Egypt (Sinai desert), Syria, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Oman, Jordan and Yemen has spread. Androctonus crassicauda of poisonous scorpions, Tolu and seized by the presence for the first time in Turkey by the scorpion Kosswing Vachon (Vachon, 1951 Tulga, 1960 ; 1964). Poisonous scorpions, mostly in the South Eastern Anatolia and Eastern Anatolia in Turkey in Elazig, Diyarbakir, Sanliurfa, Mardin, Gaziantep, Adana, it was found in the province of Hatay. Most scorpion stings are harmless and present with a number of simple clinical findings. However, it sometimes causes serious and life-threatening complications. Scorpion sting still causes serious health problems in our country, which is rich in scorpion variety, and especially in the provinces of the GAP Region where poisonous scorpions spread. Poisoning after scorpion sting is an important emergency that can end in death especially in childhood and although there are around 1500 scorpion species in the world, it is accepted that the venom of 50 species is dangerous for human beings. The venom of the Buthidae family in our country is dangerous. Androctonus scorpions are frequently seen in Sanliurfa and Diyarbakir and are the most common cause of poisoning. Scorpio population detection studies and ecological characteristics will be investigated during the months when scorpions are active.
