With the onset of the warm season, the likelihood of a human encounter with a snake increases. This can happen in the fields, in the forest, near water bodies, and sometimes in the yards of private homes.

There are also several species of venomous snakes in Ukraine. That's why tsukor.zapisi shared the rules of behavior with reptiles that can potentially save lives.

An encounter with a viper in the wild can be an unpleasant surprise, but it is important not to panic because they do not attack people for no reason. The right actions can help you avoid danger.

What to do if you see a viper

If you see a viper, you should never approach it and make any sudden movements. You should also not try to catch it, even if you just want to take the reptile away. The snake is more afraid of you than you are of it, but if it feels a real threat from you, it will attack without hesitation.

It is best to move as far away from the viper as possible and allow it to crawl away on its own. If you see a venomous snake in a public place, you should call the competent authorities and services so that they can take measures to ensure safety.

How to scare away a viper

The most reliable option for repelling vipers is special balls with a composition of essential oils. You can spread them around the site, 1 piece per meter, and make an additional barrier near the fence by placing the balls every 50 cm.

Also, if you do not want to see vipers in your summer cottage, you can sprinkle dry mustard along the fence or plant garlic there.
