Watch Out for Copperheads

This week my video focuses on the likelihood of being bitten by a snake in North Carolina. Our state ranks near the top with Georgia, Florida, and Texas for the number of snakebites in our population each year. The snake that bites the most of our neighbors is the copperhead.

Be careful when you are working in your flowerbeds and garden. This is the time of year when we like to be active outside and coincidentally these snakes are getting active with the warm weather also. Pay close attention to where you put your hands and feet. Keep an eye on pets as well.
