I've never seen one outside the Phoenix zoo . I don't think they're common in urban areas. Same with rattlers. If you stay within the Phoenix metro area and don't get a house close to the mountains, you'll be fine.

The only scary spider I've seen in 10 years was a black widow in Antelope Canyon. That's it.

Scorpions, on the other hand, are very common.
