Safely Removing Snakes from Your Property

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Most of the time, snakes are not a major concern. Nonvenomous snakes are beneficial because they eat rodents and other pests in the environment, so if you know a snake is not venomous and you can live with it, let it stay around.

However, if you cannot live with a snake, you should contact a professional animal control specialist. We can come out and remove the snake safely. Otherwise, you might try to remove the snake yourself with a snake trap. The effectiveness of these traps is hard to judge. Some people have good results with them, others not.

The next question to ask is whether you have a yard or environment that attracts pest animal species like snakes. If you have a lot of debris in the yard, or places that can look like attractive dens to snakes, it may be time to make your yard a less attractive environment for snakes by filling up areas where snakes are denning (but make sure the snakes are not inside first).

Another important question to ask is whether snakes are being attracted to your property by the presence of other pest species such as rats, mice, or gophers. In many cases, removing these other pests will cause the snakes to go away on their own.
