    just a reminder - watch where you step, they're more active in the heat.

    my uncle was grilling on the porch of his condo, went in and out numerous times, the last time he thought a bee stung him, looked down and it was a copperhead about a foot long. he had to go through the usual crap at the hospital and is ok, but serves as a good reminder to watch out.
    there are no woods around, highly developed area, third floor condo, in other words, somewhere you wouldn't think you'd have to be alert.

    WOW now that is different.

    Watch the pine needles-- even the new ones. We were spreading last year and just opened a bale, 4 babies.

    Nothing will send a client screaming into the house during a walkthrough faster than a snake. :)

    Saw a dusky pigme rattlesnake two weeks ago, it was only a baby about 10 inches long but serves as a reminder that there are dangerous snakes all around.

    I have also been seeing some really long black racers some almost 4 feet. Lots of garter snakes as well. Man, I really hate snakes.
