Virginia abounds in snakes and while most of the species are devoid of venom, there are some venomous species as well. Unfortunately, most snake habitats share proximity with human settlements. This results in common snake sightings in the yard. Whenever snake sightings are noted in the yard, animal control experts should be entrusted to evacuate the reptile out of the property. Homeowners must not try to remove the snake by themselves. This might not only be unsafe for the family, but also for the snake. Aside, there are strict laws against causing harm to wild animals.
The first step that homeowners shall take on seeing a snake in the yard is to call an animal control company that operates in their vicinity. From whatever they have seen of the snake, homeowners should try and get an idea about the length color and type of scales on the body of the snake. This would help the animal control experts get an idea about the species of the snake. However, no attempt should be made at going near to the snake. Only an elementary brief should be sufficient for professional wildlife removers to figure out the equipment needed.
Most reputable animal removal companies send their staff to the snake sighting location at very short turnarounds. In the meanwhile, it is important for homeowners to ensure that kids and pets do not go near the yard. Kids have a tendency to play in the yard for long hours. It is the duty of parents to keep checking on them. There have been several instances in the past where snaked in the yard have harmed pets and kids. Until the animal control experts arrive, it is important that kids are not allowed to go near the yard.
Once the snake is removed from the yard, professional animal removers take them into a place that is distant from residential settlements and resembles their own natural habitat. But the job of animal control experts does not cease here. After examining the yard, they can offer valuable tips to homeowners on sealing snake entry points. Professional animal control experts also offer invaluable advice on dealing with snakes until professional help arrives. It is up to homeowners to extract as much information from the professionals as they can.

Matt was professional, patient in answering all of our questions and concerns about the process, our property care and of course safely removing or relocating the fox cubs. We will certainly recommend SES to neighbors.
I had squirrels in my attic, did quite a damage up there, I called Summit and they came to the rescue, remove the squirrels but also did amazing work, thank you Summit, I recommend them.
Summit is the best. Over the past two years we've been faced with two major issues with a family members houses that we had to renovate. I'm pretty sure we'll be in the Summit "world record" books for eternity for raccoon abatement.
We had way too many groundhogs in our small backyard! We (meaning hubby) thought we could get rid of them ourselves. But then how and when to do it?...Way too many problems arose. I suddenly thought of Home Advisor.
