Watch out for snakes as weather warms, warns UAB emergency medicine specialist

"As soon as the weather starts to warm up, snakes begin to get active, and we begin seeing a bite or two. Still, we only see a few each spring, and people have a much greater chance of being stung by a bee or wasp or being bitten by a tick than being bitten by a snake," said said Janyce Sanford, M.D., chair of the UAB Department of Emergency Medicine.
