Snake Problems

Snakes are carnivores they eat anything from earthworms, insects, and slugs -to- small rodents and other snakes. If you have snakes in your home, it is usually because they followed prey or they sought a interior space in which to hibernate over winter. They usually gain access into building via cracks in foundations or basement windows. While not much of a pest themselves, if you don’t mind their feces, urine and discarded skins, their presence is a sign of an insect or small animal infestation. If you handle them they can also deliver a painful bite.

Get a professional assessment of how the snakes have entered your home and what they are eating. We can remove the snake, their food sources, and their points of entry. While local snakes are no venomous, we have encountered exotic species that have been kept as pets and escaped. It is best to treat every snake as dangerous.

Snakes are covered in our effective and affordable Integrated Pest Management Annual Package KO-12 Program that provides you with pest protection throughout the year.
