For those who spend only the winter in southern NM, just wondered if the insects and snakes go underground or whatever. In other words, are they much less of a problem in the winter versus the rest of the year. Especially the rattlers.

Comments appreciated for those of us who may be only winter time residents.

Yes, in the winter there are no problems with bugs or snakes. You will be safe from November till March. Global warming will probably change that though.

Snakes and insects are cold-blooded animals. When the weather gets cold, they either hibernate or die.

Most winters, you are totally safe from both. But during unseasonably warm winters, use caution. If it's warm enough for you to be out without a coat, it's probably warm enough for the snakes to be out too.
