Throughout the world, people are living, working and playing in venomous snake territory every day. Venomous snakes are found in every continent besides Antarctica and are responsible for 2.5 million envenoming snake bites, resulting in up to 125,000 deaths each year. While most bites are nonlethal with the help of medical treatment and antivenin, most are also preventable. Aside from avoidance, the most effective means of snake bite prevention is by using snake protective clothing such as snake boots, snake gaiters, chaps, and gloves.
Unfortunately, the parts of the world with the most snake bites and deaths are also parts of the world where poverty is very prevalent and antivenins are very limited in supply. To make matters worse, the average person cannot even fathom spending money on snake proof clothing as food and water are more important. The countries that have the highest snake bite occurrences as well as deaths are those that are located in Southern Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and most of all India.
In the United States, every state besides Maine, Alaska, and Hawaii are home to at least one of the 20 venomous snakes that are native to North America. That puts many people in contact with venomous snakes every day. North Carolina is the state that experiences the highest amount of bites with 19 of 100,000 people being bitten per year. Even though the national average is much lower at 4 per 100,000 people, the risk is still there and needs to be addressed. As stated earlier, the best defense against snake bites is avoidance of the areas that they call home. This though is tough when the places you live, work and play are the same areas that snake do the same. For these situations there is snake protective clothing that has been responsible for preventing innumerous painful, if not fatal, snake bites.
When most people think of snake bites they think of stepping on a snake and getting bit. What many fail to realize is that many snake bites occur to the fingers and hands of people. This is why snake gloves are also an important part of snake bite prevention. Most bites to the hands occur when doing such activities as gardening, picking up brush, or sticking hands in places where snakes might be hiding. As you probably already know, snakes blend into their environment very well and unless they hiss or rattle, most will not ever be seen.

Rattlesnakes are one of four poisonous snakes that inhabit the United States. There are several different varieties of rattle snake that can be found across all of the contiguous 48 states of the United States: the Prairie Rattlesnake, the Eastern Diamondback, the Timber Rattlesnake, and the Western Diamondback. Some of the rattlesnake species are comparably small, while other species can grow as long as 8 feet. The Diamondback Rattlesnake, located in western states, is responsible for more snake bite-related deaths in the U.S. than any other snake.
The venom of a rattlesnake is hemotoxic, which means that it causes damage to tissues, especially tissues of the circulatory system. The venom also contains neurotoxic compounds that interfere with the function of the nervous system. Interestingly, the venom of a juvenile rattlesnake actually contains a higher concentration of neurotoxins than that of a mature adult snake.
If you get bitten by a snake, and you don't know what kind of snake it was, you should inspect the bite wound. If there are two visible fang marks at the site of the bite, the snake was poisonous. There will also be a significant amount of pain and inflammation at the site of the bite wound. You may also feel nauseated and weak, or have a strange rubber-like taste in your mouth.
If you need to move to call or get help, make sure to wait for about twenty minutes after the bite occurred in order to slow the flow of venom through your veins as much as possible. If you know that it is going to be a long time, say several hours, before help can reach you, lie still with the bitten area lower than your heart. It would also be good to use a coat or blanket to cover yourself up and preserve your body heat.
The best choice is to avoid getting bitten in the first place. If you spend a lot of time outside, hiking, biking, etc., it is wise to learn about the types of poisonous snakes that you could encounter, their habits and areas where they prefer to live. Because snakes are cold blooded, they are most active when the weather is warm, so be extra cautious of snakes in warm weather. Rattle snakes have their built-in alert system when they feel threatened, they rattle their tales, so take heed and move away from an aggravated rattlesnake as quickly and quietly as possible to avoid getting bitten.

Have a Bat in Your Home?
I have seen hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to people's homes. This damage was not caused by storms or fires or high water. The damage I see is caused by wild animals. Sometimes homeowner insurance covers the loss. Often times it doesn't.
I own and operate a nuisance wildlife removal service in Flint, Michigan. In this article I will review two actual cases of animal damage for you. These two cases combined cost these two homeowners almost $20,000.
The first situation involved a family that took a month long vacation from their home in Flint, Michigan. They rented a house for a month and had a wonderful time in sunny Florida. Upon their return they found their house ransacked. Chairs were tipped over, pictures were ripped from the walls, and the curtains and drapes were ripped to shreds. Every item on every shelf and had been flung to the floor. Boxes of cereal and other food were ripped open and the contents scattered all over the floors. The heartbreak really sunk in when they saw that the vandals had broken every Royal Daulton (a very expensive collectable) that they had is a large display cabinet.
Most homeowner insurance policies cover damage created by bats. Some even cover the expense of removing the bats. She turned in her claim and was turned down flat. Her policy specifically stated that rodent and bat damage are not listed for coverage.
Both of these two animal damage situations could have been prevented with a http://www.advanced-wildlife-control.com/Preventative%20home%20inspection.htm ">Preventative Home Inspection.
It's time, right now, for you to call your insurance agent. Ask if you would have been covered by either of these instances. Review your policy and ask if any animal damage is specifically excluded.
I do not sell insurance. I am a homeowner and I have insurance for my own home. I know that it's not on the top of your list to make that call to your insurance agent. You may be glad at a later date that you took the time to do it.
Now go make that call.
