Scarlet Snake


  • The species is nocturnal and usually hides under dead leaves so is not commonly seen by humans
  • Average length is between 14 to 26 inches
  • Diet consists of lizards, small rodents, and other snakes

The scarlet snake is one of many nonvenomous snakes that is patterned to look similar to the highly venomous coral snake.  The saying “Red touch black, you’re OK Jack. Red touch yellow, you’re dead fellow.” is useful to identify between coral snakes and its many impostors. The scarlet snake is a small to medium sized snake that is light grey with black-bordered red blotches.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
