Many of North Carolina's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving North Carolina's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Orange county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Chapel Hill animal control for wildlife issues.

Chapel Hill Wildlife Removal Tip: Snake poem - red touch yellow kills a fellow

Adults and children have been taught of a snake poem which helps them determine if a particular type of snake is poisonous or not. This poem highlights something about red touch yellow kills a fellow. This is the usual version of the chant. But even if it is a one way to know if a snake is poisonous or not, it is still not proven in most situations.

This Snake Poem Fails

This snake poem is actually a failure because let's say for instance between a shovel-nose and a coral snake. Both of them have the so-called yellow bands touching the red bands. Now, a bite that comes from a coral snake is harmful and life-threatening. The shovel-nose may look poisonous but it actually isn't in reality. This is why the old adage is incorrect.

No Ways That an Innocent Hiker or Amateur Snake Hunter Can Tell if a Snake is Poisonous or Not

In general, there are no ways that an innocent hiker or amateur snake hunter can tell if a snake is poisonous or not. There are of course dangerous snakes that share the same characteristics. But still, there are vipers which can look so harmless by conventional standards.

Know the Type of Snake to know if it is Harmful

The best way for you to know if a snake is harmful is by its type. This will usually be determined by way of combining essential characteristics and analyzing them basing on identification guidelines. The facial feature, length, width, color pattern, coloration, scale patterns are all features to help you classify a serpent. You should not just depend on color which is what is implied in the poem.

Avoid Snakes As Much as Possible

When you encounter a yellow, red, black and white snake, it is best to avoid them as much as possible. You need to move away. Even if a coral snake does not bite, it will be a wise decision to remove yourself and to solve your issue.

In addition to that, when you handle it by yourself, it is proven to be an unwise decision. You need to seek for professional assistance. There are also no snake repellants that can push them away from your place.

Now, you already have learned that you cannot tell a snake to be dangerous by just referring to a poem. Even looking at the photos of snakes will never be enough!
