In addition to being generally unpleasant and alarming, snakes can pose a real danger to your household. Some of these animals are poisonous, with bites that contain potentially deadly venom. You should never attempt to kill a snake, as many of these animals are harmless, and even do important work controlling the rodent population (some people even like to keep snakes as pets.) But it is important to take action if you see an unexpected snake inside or outside of your property.
If you see a snake around your home, you should:
- Remain calm, not making any sudden movements that could scare the snake into hiding somewhere you can’t find it.
- Attempt to identify the species; determining whether the snake is poisonous or not will help you make the important decision of whether to vacate your property.
- If the snake is inside, try opening a nearby door to coax it out. If you are not able to do this, you may want to create a barrier to trap the snake in the room, so it can’t slither away. Unless you are ABSOLUTELY SURE the snake is not poisonous (like a common garter snake, for instance,) do not approach it or attempt to get rid of it on your own.
- Call an experienced pest control professional to remove the snake for you.
At Modern Exterminating, our “Snake-A-Way” service is designed to ensure snakes never come onto your property to begin with. In addition to safe spraying methods that will keep snakes away for up to 120 days, we also offer exclusion services that help seal up cracks and holes that could be an entryway for snakes to come into your home.
It is important to inspect your house or business’s foundation and look for unsealed wiring or open pipes that might encourage snakes to enter your property. You should also consider calling for lawn care, as overhanging tree branches are a common means for snakes to get onto your roof or into your chimney. By sealing off these entry points, you can not only keep snakes but pests like rodents and other animals away, too. Remember, killing snakes is considered an act of animal cruelty, which is why our team focuses on removing snakes and keeping them away, rather than using traditional extermination methods.
