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 had noticed that I was having a flea problem with my dog. I hired Horizons and followed their suggestions after they treated my yard and house. The service was wonderful and the fleas are gone! I have since hired them to do my pest service, mosquito service, and snake control. I have recommended them to my family and friends.
