Snake Control

The last thing you want is to find a snake slithering through your newly-renovated basement. Snakes often strike fear into the hearts of homeowners everywhere, and while some snakes are harmless, it’s best not to try to find out if your unwelcome guest is venomous. It’s important to call on a professional pest control company to properly remove the snake from your property and ensure your family’s safety.

How Do Snakes Get Into My Home?

Snakes are always looking for food sources and good spots to take shelter. When they find an abundance of food, such as mice, insects, and frogs, combined with a secure, cozy spot to hide in, they are likely to stay. Several factors can encourage a snake to enter your property, including:

  • Overgrown grass
  • If your home is close to wooded areas
  • You have stacks of wood around your yard

Removing debris and wood stacks from near your home is a good way to provide a buffer for snakes and other pests.

Small snakes can easily slide through holes or cracks in your home’s exterior. Even tiny openings around windows and doors can be an accessible entrance for a small snake. Holes in your attic’s ventilation screens and unsealed crawl spaces also make good points of entry. If your house has limbs or branches that touch the roof, trimming them back is a good idea. While snakes can’t jump, they are terrific climbers and use the branches quickly to get to a good spot.
