With the warm weather, snakes have been active, but they like to hide in shady or damp areas during the day.
Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services, LLC offers some safety tips to avoid incidents with snakes that could spoil the fun.
Don’t hide eggs on the ground where childern will have to reach where they can’t see. That includes under bushes, behind flower pots and rocks or even under pool toys.
Damp areas, such as under bushes with drip systems, are especially appealing to snakes.
If you do find a snake, walk away and don’t try to move it yourself. An estimated 80 to 90 percent of snake bites happen when homeowners try to deal with the snake themselves.
If bitten by a snake, call 911 and stay calm. Keep the bitten area still and elevated. Remove any jewelry or constructing items near the affected area in case of swelling.
Do not drive yourself to the hospital, use ice to cool the bite, cut open the wound and struck to suck out the venom or use a tourniquet.
At least 3 species of venomous snakes make their home in Virginia. However, far more non-venomous snakes are found in the state.
Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services, LLC also wants people to understand that killing a snake or other reptile isn’t the best way of dealing with these creatures.
