Prosper wildlife control tip of the month: Venomous Snakes of Texas
Same as Florida, Texas is also a common home to several snake species. Prosper pest control reports say that there are 76 types of snakes with 115 subspecies, but only 15% of them are actually venomous. There are four major species that can cause major harm to humans; the list includes Rattlesnakes, Cottonmouth Snakes, Copperhead Snakes, and Coral Snakes. Before you plan a visit to Texas and come in contact with snake species, it is good to know few essential details about venomous snakes of Texas so that you can stay safe from their attack.
Venomous Snakes of Texas:
1. Coral Snakes:
Coral snakes have special Prosper animal control markings on their whole body, but from past several years, these markings are being copied by many other snake species to ward off predators. These snakes can be identified from their black, yellow and bright red stripes. Coral Snakes prefer to live in the soil, scrub-covered sand hills and within rock burrows. The sudden impact of coral snake bite can be rapid paralysis, failure of the respiratory system and vision issues. A person bitten by coral snake requires immediate medical treatment. As these snakes are often confused with many other non-venomous snakes; you need to remember one thing that if the snake has a red and yellow pattern it is venomous, and the red-black pattern means non-venomous.
If you come across Cottonmouth or Water Moccasin, it is better to avoid this harmful snake. It can usually grow up to the length of 4 to 5 feet, and as it gets older, it becomes darker in Prosper wildlife removal color. In the beginning days of life, it is observed to have a lighter brown appearance that becomes darker black with age. This snake has very toxic venom that can cause hemorrhage. You can identify this snake with the white lining inside its mouth.
This snake species is rare, so very few people actually come in direct contact with Copperhead. Same as Coral Snakes, the appearance of Copperhead is also copied by many other non-venomous snake species. This Prosper animal trapping snake is generally identified with its tan, rust and brown color with irregularly shaped patches that have mixed lighter and darker tones. Copperhead lives under the leaves scattered on the forest floor, and it attacks only when threatened. The venom of Copperhead snake can cause several secondary infections, but it is not so dangerous to cause the death of the person.
There are wide Prosper exterminator ranges of venomous snakes that fall into the category of Rattlesnakes and are found in Texas. The list includes Pygmy Rattlesnake, Massasauga Rattlesnake, Western Rattlesnake, Mojave Rattlesnake, Diamond Rattlesnake and Timber Rattler. The most common identification of these snakes is that they have a rattle in their tail so when any of these venomous snakes are close to you, the sound of rattle may warm you to stay safe from them. The Pygmy rattlesnake is the smallest venomous snake in Texas, and it is also known by several other names such as ground rattler, grey rattlesnake, spotted rattler and small rattlesnake.
