Did you know ...?
EVERY season is rattlesnake season in So. California
As a matter of fact their daytime activity actually increases in Fall and Spring vs Summer.
Why? Because they like cooler or milder temperatures just like some people do. So when the temperature is cooler in fall and spring, rattlers are more active during the day.
"Anytime the temperature gets above about 80 degrees, the rattlesnake will generally retreat from that and try to hide," said Terry Phillips, curator of reptiles at Reptile Garden.
"So in the spring and fall, they're active right now during the daytime. In the hot summer months, they're usually active in the evening, overnight, and early in the morning."
For those who enjoy the outdoors with your dogs or those living in homes backed up to hillsides and in rural areas, rattlesnakes can be a great risk to your dog requiring emergency medical care and the cost involved can rise quickly. Rattlesnake avoidance training will teach your dog to avoid the sight, sound and the smell of a rattlesnake once they become aware of one to give you peace of mind and potentially save both you and your dogs' life by alerting you to the presence of a rattlesnake. So, if you have not had your dog trained yet, it's not too late!
