Hot climate areas are perfect spots for cold-blooded reptiles, such as snakes. During the summer months in particular, snakes will start making appearances in your gardens, basements, playgrounds, sheds, and attics. Snakes have a natural ability to camouflage, combined with their slithering movements and speedy movement rate. These factors make it very hard for people to employ a good method to get rid of them. Hence, professional snake removal may be one of your top priorities, especially during the weeks when your children are out of school, and playing outside in green areas the most.
Our registered wildlife removal professionals understand the behavior and tendencies of these reptiles, and will locate and trap snakes that have already chosen your area as their home. They will also help you prevent future snake “visits” by providing you with tools and information to keep your areas snake-proof. Do not leave your service request to the last minute. We recommend that you call our wildlife removal service as soon as you suspect any snakes in your property. The earlier the issue is detected, the easier and more effectively the removal will be.
Our registered pest control technicians are fully trained and equipped to perform snake removal jobs. While snake removal is a regularly requested service, our removal team does more than just take them away. Snakes are quite messy, and will leave behind their nest area already marked. This is when a professional team comes into play, to deal with these issues. The snake removal team will seal all rooflines to avoid future snakes to slither their way inside. They will also seal any gaps around your property; some of these are very small and hard to detect, which gives way for smaller snakes to also get inside. It is imperative to seal them. Additionally, the team will vacuum snake droppings, and remove any potential insulation issues. The first step in snake control is to find out what kind of snake is creating the problem. Once identified, one of the following methods can be used to remove the snake.
Exclusion: Structural gaps and crevices larger than 1/4 inch and within three feet of grade should be closed off because snake can pass through the small openings. Crawlspace vents should not have screens with larger than 1/4 inch mesh.
Live-Trapping: Snakes can be captured by placing several giant-size glue boards along the walls. Captured snakes can be released from the glue traps by pouring a little vegetable oil where the scales are stuck to the glue.
Hand-Capture: A professional trained in the use of a snake stick can use this tool to immobilize a venomous snake in order to correctly grasp the snake directly behind its head. A small nonvenomous snake can be hand-captured by quickly grasping it directly behind the head.
Snakes are interesting, enigmatic, yet potentially dangerous creatures. Contrary to popular belief, only six species of snakes, out of a total of nearly 40 that live in the U.S. Southeastern area, are actually venomous. A snake’s markings would be able to identify a safe one from a dangerous one. However, people’s fears and apprehensions make it nearly impossible for the untrained eye to tell the difference. This is why you need a professional snake removal service that knows exactly what to look for.
