One of the largest industries that TurtleSkin supplies SnakeArmor to is to the electric industry for lineman workers. It is not uncommon for us to get orders for entire lineman crews working in southern states with large rattlesnake populations. When servicing power lines and transformers lineman can be exposed to venomous snakes. Often the heat generated by transformers can be an attractive spot for rattlesnakes to hang out!
Some of the responsibilities of a DOT worker include roadside cleanup, mowing, and weed whacking. Workers can certainly cross paths with rattlesnakes in this line of work.
