If you enjoy swimming whenever all summertime long in your backyard, you probably have lots of swimming supplies. Does that include pool noodles? If so, you may wish to check on them. Obviously, snakes are living inside of them.
The City of Buckeye Fire Department in Arizona shared how they responded to a resident having rattlesnakes living in their swimming pool noodles. This family maintained their pool noodles up on a wall by the swimming pool. Eventually when they went out for a swim and grabbed on the swimming pool noodles, a rattlesnake popped out. After additional evaluation, there were multiple young rattlesnakes living inside!
Thankfully no one got harmed. But, the Fire Department did say that they have actually responded to multiple of those phone calls recently. Since snakes are drawn to cool down, quiet locations, swimming pool noodles seem like the perfect home to them.
Instead of leaving your swimming pool noodles and other pool accessories outside, put them in a shut container or in a shed outside. Make sure there are no holes or any ways a snake could sliver their way inside.
Snakes are all over, not simply in dry hot places. Make certain to stay protected this summer period and check your pool noodles!
