While Arkansas is not due for a massive swarm of cyclical cicadas in 2021, the state does serve as home for several species that emerge yearly. Cicadas are harmless, though their noises can certainly annoy nature lovers trying to enjoy the outdoors in peace, but where there are cicadas, there are often copperheads!
It is important to remember that like all snakes, copperheads do not generally seek out humans to attack. They will bite if disturbed, so if you are walking in an area where copperheads are known to live, always keep an eye out when walking! If you see a venomous snake, avoid it and it will generally avoid you.
