Snake Removals in Phoenix and Tucson 07/28/2021

Rain! We finally had good rain, after years without (much). The result? Snakes are going to become VERY active. We’ve already seen the start of it, with more snake removals than ever before in such a short time. Here are just some of the snakes we’ve removed since the last update, with many more yet to process.

Moisture not only brings a much needed drink, but cooler and more stable temperatures. Snakes can easily die if their body temperature is above 105˚F, so these late July temperatures that don’t even get to triple digits are a great time to move. It’s also the start of baby rattlesnake season. Monsoon moisture triggers this event, so watch for baby rattlesnakes in our feed soon.
