Snake Control

Pest Control for Snakes

Snakes are the most feared pest in the world. There are 2,700 species of snakes worldwide with 250 of those species residing in the United States. The majority of snakes in the U.S. are not venomous; however, poisonous snake sightings occur often. Snakes attempt to avoid people as a general rule, but the majority of them will bite when threatened or surprised. Snake control products are used to prevent and catch snakes.

Snake Control Methods

Controlling snakes begins with an inspection to determine why the snakes want to be there in the first place. If snakes are indoors it could be because of food, water, or ideal temperature and conditions. Look for signs of rodents since they are a food source for the snakes. Also look for entry points into the structure such as holes in the foundation or missing vent covers.

When inspecting for outdoor problems, look for high vegetation or wood piles on the ground. When snakes are found outside, they are usually just trying to get from one place to another or foraging for food. They will hide under logs, and in debris such as scrap metal and old tires. Always wear long pants, boots, and gloves when inspecting for snakes, and make sure not to place bare hands in areas that you cannot visually inspect first. Never provoke a snake if found.

After the inspection, apply snake repellents around foundations, in crawlspaces, entry points, basements, and under covered porches. Also use repellents in the yard where snakes are a problem. When using a glue board trap to catch snakes, place it along walls and places where pests are most likely to travel.

Why are Snakes Dangerous?

There are 45,000 snake bites in the United States per year with 8,000 of those resulting from venomous snakes. Snake bites can be deadly if not treated immediately, and children are at a higher risk since they have smaller bodies. It is important to get to an emergency room immediately after a snake bite even if there is no pain, because the bite can lead to death. Symptoms may begin right after being bitten or they my not occur for several hours after the incident. Venomous snakes in the U.S. include: cobra, copperhead, coral snake, cottonmouth (also know as the water moccasin), rattlesnake, and various snakes in zoos.
