Saleh Al-Sheikhi explained that this is the breeding season of snakes and scorpions. Thereby they are entering the houses. It is now on the people to be careful of them.
People living in the desert areas are at major risk. The residents of the deserts, ancient settlements, and slum dwellers need to be careful in this season.

However, people living in high-rise buildings are at less risk of scorpions and snakes. The people living far from deserts are also safe. In a tweet, Saleh Al-Sheikhi warned people about scorpions.
