Killed 3 copperheads from 8:30 to 9:45 pm tonight: my place is clean, no rodents, they sure are crawling...one under shelter at garage. One on sidewalk, last one in front of garage door....watch where you step!

Well, at least you know why you didn’t have a rodent problem. That’s an eventful evening right there.

That’s why daddy taught NEVER step or reach where you cannot see!
So use flashlights at night.

Maybe it is just the picture but the all look small from what I'm used to . You sure they aren't just young and the rest of the family is still around?

Jake nailed it. A Wildlife damage control agent I know removed 20 copperheads in two days from one residential lot in New Hanover county some years ago. They were congregated on a small area where cicadas were emerging.

With all the hot weather and storms in the evening they have been really active. My GF got tagged 3 weeks ago while we were walking the dog.

My brother in law’s dog got bit in the face Sunday night. Fortunately the first bite was a warning and no venom. Vet told them they are seeing more bites from rain and cicadas.

They’re thick in Raleigh this year too. A nearby neighborhood had 3 bites in 2 weeks. One young girl wearing flip flops, one guy in his garage. Friend in same neighborhood had 4 around house already. Several around my house too.

interesting behavior change in the copperhead targeting cicadias as posted in the Tulsa paper. Haven't noted any cicadias especially. I do have a boat load of toads this year--that may be the attractant. FYI i just finised a walk around my garages and shelters just to see if I might happen upon another......nothing seen tonight---temp, humidity, lunar--something had them turned on last night. This rocky top hillside has always been generous with copperheads and I have killed 3 in a day before but not 3 in an hour and a half, none of them "together".

Killed this one in my woodpile a couple of weeks ago. Was moving wood, picked up a piece, and he was underneath, but quickly disappeared. Three hours later I was able to kill him in the same spot. Five rapid fire snake shot from S&W M442 at short range, he was DRT. A close call for me since I was not wearing gloves and put my hand within inches of him, but I survived and he didn't...

Dang man....she alright ??
She’s going to make it haha. She took it like a champ, we talked to our neighbor doc and saved ourselves a hospital trip. An ibuprofen regimen and some rest was all that was needed.
It was a lot like a really bad sprained ankle. A lot of bruising and tender for 2 weeks. Yesterday was the end of week 3 and she was able to go for a run again.
