Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JUNE 25, 2014 What to do when you cross paths with a snake by Rick OConnor, Sea Grant Extension Agent in Escambia County Warming temperatures have awakened snakes that have been dormant during the winter months. As a result, they are more active during abnormal times of the day and move more than they typically do while searching for food. This also means more people are likely to encounter with them. Even though most snakes are non venomous, many people fear them and will go out of their way to kill them if an encounter occurs. Interestingly, 95% of the humans bitten by snakes are either trying to catch or kill them; suggesting the best thing to do when encountering a snake is to leave it be. How can you reduce your chance of encountering a snake? Most snakes found around the house are either seeking suitable habitat or food. Anything that could attract rodents or amphibians could attract snakes. Over grown landscaping, trash or brush piles, bird feeders, water features, garbage, and greenhouses are examples of snake attractants many people have. To reduce your chance of an encounter you should move such items away from the house, and for those that you cannot keep as clean as you can. Snakes do not like to cross short grass, so a frequently mowed yard helps as well. If you live near good snake habitat you may have to invest in silt fencing, or a similar product, that has over. If placing silt fencing along the boundary you should have the wooden stakes on your side of the fence; snakes can climb these. What do I do if I encounter a snake? is that, like most animals, there is a zone around snakes in which they feel threat ened. When they detect you, they react as if you are the predator. If you are outside their zone they will remain motionless. If you cross the line, they will try to move away to avoid being attacked. If they have nowhere to move they will turn and defend themselves; this could mean a strike. If a snake is encountered, try not to move towards the snake and if you are already close try to give the animal an escape route. Many will want to know if the snake is venomous. Of the 46 spe cies and subspecies of snakes in our state belong to the family Viperidae and can the triangle-shaped head, and the second set of nostrils (pits) on the snout. These include the three species of rattlesnakes, the moccasin, and the copperhead. One venomous snake, the Eastern Coral Snake, does not have the appearance of a viper. The coloration of this snake is red, yellow and black with red touching yellow. They also differ from their kingsnake mimics by having a black head. If the unfortunate happens and a snake is not get bit twice. Many people react by trying to kill the snake and multiple bites can happen. Nonvenomous bites should be washed with warm water and soap. If the bite is from a viper, rememberdo not get bit twice. With venomous snakes many feel the hospital will need the snake for is not necessary and, again, could lead to multiple bites. Viper bites can be ex tremely painful and, if venom is injected, can induce severe swelling. You should remove rings, watches, or any garment that may impede swelling. Many of the bites can cause more harm than the bite. It is recommended that you hold the bite below heart level if possible and calmly go to the hospital. Coral snake bites are often undetected but are very serious and medical attention is needed. As we approach spring, be aware that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva tion Commission is trying to track three species of local snakes; the Eastern Dia mondback Rattlesnake, the Florida Pine Snake, and the Southern Hognose. If you think you see one of these FWC would like to know. A GPS mark and photograph is website: ABOVE: This nonvenmous gray rat snake has a head shaped more like your thumb and the round pupil. BELOW: This copperhead shows the elliptical pupil and pit commonly found in Floridas pit vipers. Apalachicola River Blueway added to Nat. Trails System To promote outdoor recreation and reconnect Americans to nature, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and Director of the National Park Service Jonathan B. Jarvis recently announced the recognition of 19 hiking and biking trails and two water trails as national recreation trails, adding 452 miles in 11 states to the National Trails System. I can think of no better way to celebrate National Trails Day than to support the efforts of local communities by formally recognizing these exceptional trails as national recreation trails, Jewell said. They provide easily acces sible places to get exercise and connect with nature in both urban and rural areas, and promote our goal of encouraging all Americans, especially youth, to play, learn, serve and work in the great outdoors. "The Apalachicola River Blueway stretches 106 miles from the dam in Chattahoochee to Apalachicola Bay. The est hotspots of biodiversity and is bordered by large tracts of pristine, undeveloped land, which are home to many threatened and rare species of plants and animals. The river landscapes and vanishing cultures. It is a rare gem in the Florida Panhandle." Before he called 911, he phoned his Fire Department.

Everybody was scared it was a coral snake, her father said, but she insisted it had a streak going up and down its To be sure, they began pulling up photos of snakes on cell phones for Lexi to examine and determined that it was a cottonmouth that bit her.

Hall CONSULTANT grapevineofgadsden @ Protecting yourself from mosquito bites & their diseases BRISTOL The Florida Department of Health in Calhoun and Liberty Counties is reminding res idents of the importance of preventing mosquito bites to protect themselves from mosquito borne illnesses. "Avoiding mosquito bites is the key to prevent ing possible mosquitoborne disease infection, said Rachel Manspeaker, Administrator of the Flor ida Health Department in Liberty County. We are encouraging all residents to routinely check out side their homes for any standing water and drain it immediately since it is important for everyone to take precautionary mea sures to help reduce the chance of being bitten. Remember to drain and cover." The public should re main diligent in taking precautions to eliminate areas where mosquitoes may breed and reduce the possibility of being bitten by mosquitoes. DRAIN standing wa ter to stop mosquitoes from multiplying. Drain water from gar bage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, cool any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appli ances and other items that are not being used. Empty and clean bird baths and pets' water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and ve hicles from rain with tarps that don't accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlo rinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. COVER skin with clothing or repellent. Clothing Wear shoes, socks, long pants and long sleeves. This type of pro tection may be necessary for people who must work in areas where mosquitoes are present. Repellent Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito net ting to protect children younger than 2 months old. Tips on Repellent Use *Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply repellent. Some repellents are not suitable for children. *Products with concen trations of up to 30 percent DEET (N,N-diethyl-mtoluidine) are generally recommended. Other US Environmental Protection Agency-approved repel lents contain picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label. *Apply insect repellent to exposed skin or onto clothing, but not under clothing. *In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is age appropriate. Accord ing to the CDC, mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of three years. DEET is not rec ommended on children younger than 2 months old. *Avoid applying repel lents to the hands of chil dren. Adults should apply hands and then transfer it to the child's skin and clothing. *If additional protec tion is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturer's directions. *Repair broken screen ing on windows, doors, porches, and patios. *To determine which repellent is right for you, consider using the U.S. Environmental Protec tion Agency's search tool for skin-applied re pellent products: www. insect/#searchform.
