Beware Of Extra Copperheads Out Snacking On Cicadas In Arkansas This Spring

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!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

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.
