Sanford, FL, may be the happiest place on earth, but that doesn’t stop nuisance Florida wildlife from moving to the area. Bats, for example, are prevalent. These pests carry rabies and easily break into attics, one of their favorite places to roost. Surprisingly, they only need a gap less than half an inch wide to get in. As their droppings pile up, so do histoplasmosis spores that can lead to lung infections. Bat waste also stains exterior walls at entry points.

When you think about where poisonous snakes live, you might picture tropical climates or desert ranges throughout the country. Not many people would associate seemingly innocent forests and wooded areas in Indiana as homes to venomous snakes. But the truth is, out of the 39 species of snake found in Indiana, there are 4 species that are poisonous. Continue reading to learn which ones!

The Water Moccasin Agkistrodon piscivorus

Also known as Eastern Cottonmouths, Water Moccasins are a poisonous subspecies of pitviper that can deliver a painful and potentially deadly bite. Bites are treated with a serum called CroFab anti-venom. Although usually not fatal, their cytotoxic venom can cause severe scarring, tissue deterioration, and possible amputation. They are the only species of semiaquatic vipers in the world, usually living in or near marches, slow-moving streams, and lake areas. Most Cottonmouths live in warmer regions, so it is unlikely to ever spot one in the north. But there is a small population known to exist near the southern border of Indiana. Although their patterns often get them confused for common water snakes, you can tell a Water Moccasin apart because it displays a distinguishable inner white mouth when agitated or annoyed.

The Timber Rattlesnake Crotalus horridus

Another endangered venomous pitviper species, the Timber Rattlesnake is often found living on dry deciduous forests and hillsides surrounding rugged terrain. Unfortunately for Hoosiers, the Timber Rattlesnake is among the most dangerous in the country. This is because they are large in size, extremely venomous, and have long fangs. Its venom is neurotoxic, hemorrhagic, and proteolytic.

Armadillos are relatively recent immigrants to the American south and southeast. Their population has spread rapidly in the few decades they've been in the United States, and they have already taken over nearly all of the non-desert areas of the southern half of the country. Most commonly seen as road kill, armadillos are also pests that can destroy extensive amounts of outdoor space with the digging and burrowing they do to search for food.

The Basics
The most common variety found in the United States is the nine-banded armadillo. They generally weigh between 12 and 22 pounds. They are protected by a hard outer armor that looks a bit like a shell. They have long claws that are optimized for digging, which they extensively do in their search for insects, their main source of food. 'Dillos have powerful noses that can smell an insect through 8 inches of soil, and they're not shy about chasing after a meal. They are mostly nocturnal animals who live in burrows when they are not out digging up insects.

Remove Your Problem
It can be difficult for an amateur to keep their yards safe from these insect hunters. Fences are easy for them to burrow underneath, and scent deterrents either wash away or take excessive effort to properly implement. Your best bet for removing and excluding armadillos from your yard or home is to call a professional pest control team. These wildlife extraction experts will be able to safely remove and relocate your pesky armored intruder. Once your pesky visitor is gone, your pest control experts can make recommendations on how to successfully keep any future intruders out of your yard and away from your house.

If you own a dog, especially a hunting dog and live in a part of the country that has poisonous snakes then you should train your dog to avoid all snakes. Unlike people dogs cannot wear snake boots to protect themselves from the fangs of a pit viper that lives nearby. Dogs by their nature a curious about everything including snakes. It only takes a second for a dog to be struck in the muzzle or the eye and you have a serious problem.

Hunting dog training that includes snake avoidance will reduce the chances that your dog will be bit by a poisonous snake. Snake avoidance training is a specialty that requires the trainer to be very comfortable in handling snakes. Several hunting dog training specialists located in the South and West train their prize hunting dogs during the regular obedience training. They would never risk their dog and all the time and effort they have invested by ignoring this serious problem.

We have bird dogs and during their early hunting dog training we introduce them to snakes. In many case catching a local non poisonous snake is the first step in snake avoidance. Placing a freshly caught snake in front of puppy will cause the snake to strike the dog repeatedly. It is important not to say anything to the dog during this avoidance training. Frequently this will cause the pup to avoid snakes for the rest of their lives. However this procedure frequently needs to be followed up with additional training methods.

It must be understood that hunting dog training that includes snake avoidance is no guarantee that your dog will not be struck by a poisonous snake. In many cases as the dog works the cover it will surprise a snake and be struck. However frequently these initial strikes do not carry a large dose of venom and are used by the snake to warn the intruder off. An untrained dog will frequently turn on the snake and be struck again with a full load of venom which may kill or blind a dog. In most cases a trained dog will immediately leave the snake alone and continue hunting.

In every case whenever your dog encounters a snake it should be examined closely. Hunting dogs should be put up and observed for any swelling or signs of a bite. Many Vets will provide you with the first aid medicines that you need to treat your dog in the field. If you have any doubts about a snake bite you should contact your Vet immediately. If you love your dog then you will invest in the time and effort to properly train it in snake avoidance.
