2 March 20, 2019 DEADLINE : WED. MARCH 27 H for the april 3 rd edition Desert Messenger News Email: 928-916-4235 Help keep snakes away from your home with the following tips: • Eliminate rodents — a snake's preferred food source — from around your home. • Move woodpiles and throw out junk from your yard to remove potential homes for snakes and their prey. • Erecting a wall will deter snakes from entering your yard. Solid walls 4 feet high with a 4-inch lip an- gling outward will discourage most snakes. Sink the bottom of the wall into the ground. Fill any tunnels burrowed by rodents. • Install gates snug against the ground. • Keep walkways clear of brush. • Light pathways around your home. Bull snakes are often mistaken for rattlesnakes due to color. They can hiss and act like rattlesnakes and use it as defense. Their heads are different shaped than rattlesnakes (round and same size as neck not triangle with a smaller neck) and they don't have rattles. They will kill rattlesnakes and pests. Quartzsite Fire Dept. reminded residents: "If you see any snake on your property give us a call and we'll come out." If the snake is determined to be poi- sonous and it is located inside your home or garage, or at the entrance to your home, call Quartzsite Fire Department's non-emergency number at 928-927-6556. In either case, be sure to keep track of the snake's movement, so that it can be found and relocated. 6 tips to keep home safe against snakes 1265 W.
