Snake Removal / Control
Snakes are usually classified as a pest species due to people’s fear of the animal. The most common complaints include the following:
- Snakes in yard or on property
- Snakes living under home or deck
- Snake in the swimming pool
- Snake inside the home!
- Concern for safety of pets
For these reasons, many people wish to have this nuisance reptile removed. Because they’re difficult to trap, removal is usually done by hand (or tong).
The primary concern seems to be fear of snakes (Ophidiophobia) which many people have. It’s a common phobia, and we have seen it many times. Adults cowering up on chairs, shaking. It’s irrational but very real for some people. Even for those without a flat-out phobia, snakes are often unsettling. Often it’s just a matter of ignorance – people don’t know which snakes are venomous and which are not, so they are naturally cautious around all snakes. Snakes inhabit many ecological niches, and often around human buildings. They’ll get into pools, screened porches, and oftentimes, the home itself. Snakes don’t need much space to enter a home.
How Do I Get Rid Of Snakes?
If you’ve got a snake on your property, you might just want to leave it alone. It’ll be on its way. If you see it habitually and don’t like it, then you might want to have it removed. If you’ve got a snake inside your house and you are unsure of the species, don’t try to catch it – most cases of snake bite actually occur when a person is trying to kill or catch a snake. Leave it alone, or isolate it if possible. Just call Summit Environmental Solutions and we will get rid of those snakes for you.
