The single most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your family is to educate yourselves.  This website is here as a resource to help understand what creatures live here, personal observations, habits, behaviors, and precautions we can all take to live peacefully with all of our wild neighbors.

There's nothing to be afraid of- there's nothing here out to get us.  We are not a prey item for anything living here and any attempt at biting, stinging, etc. is purely out of self-defense.
