Largely due to the risk and danger of snake bites, rattlesnakes have come to instill paranoia and fear in humans. As a result, there are numerous forms of rattler control, such as bounties, poisons, traps, and the destruction of food supplies and refuges. However, Crotalus atrox is a highly successful and fertile species, and therefore are not currently threatened by any forms of mass destruction or species control.
