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

Poisonous snakes are part of Virginia’s wildlife, for better or for worse. Yet this spring, you might spot even more of them than usual. That’s because the 17-year Brood X cicadas will emerge this spring, and we won’t be the only ones to take notice of their loud droning calls. Copperhead snakes are known to make a late-night snack out of these critters. So as you’re enjoying all of your favorite springtime activities in Virginia, from gardening to hiking, be sure to be extra mindful of the snakes this year.

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.
