Snakes create fear in many people that few other animals can match.
Even many animals seem to view snake as threatening, and even birds and monkeys in the wild have a unique vocalization for alerting when a snake is seen.
Snakes can suffer from changes in habitat. Isolation when their natural land is broken up by development, they can’t easily move across the unfriendly terrain. This can force snakes towards more urbanized areas where they can find their way into your home or business.
Common Snake Problems and Potential Solutions
Snakes cause very few issues, and the couple they do are not too damaging to human settlements. Some of the larger pet snake species may cause problems after being released into lakes and rivers in urban areas. With the exception of venomous species— snakes are not a threat to humans or their pets.
Most encounters with snakes are passive, but when it occurs, here are some things you should consider:
- Avoid the snake all together
- Identify it by color patterns.
- Leave it alone as long as it is not venomous and not inside your house or building.
Venomous snakes are another matter altogether. If you find a venomous snake in your yard, take it seriously. The snake should be removed to ensure that no one in your family, including pets, gets hurt.
Moving snakes into unfamiliar territory may compromise their chances to survive.

Excluding snakes from buildings can be as difficult as excluding rodents. And keeping snakes out of yards or gardens may be completely impractical.
A snake in your house may be there either accidentally or purposely to find prey or shelter. They may become stuck inside and can die from lack of food or moisture if not captured and removed.
Some snakes will hibernate in walls, sheds, garages, pools or even crawl spaces of older houses. If you find shed skin, this usually indicates that a snake might have been living in your house for some time.
If you find a snake in your house, call wildlife removal services as soon as possible, for both the snake’s and your peace of mind:

- You can try confining the snake to a room or corner with barriers such as boards or boxes so that she will be easy to capture when we arrive onsite..
