Snakes are found across the United States, but the species of snake – and how common they are in a given area – depends on the region and surrounding habitat.
The presence of any snake species creates a potential hazard. Typical snake calls involve a snake outside, but snakes also find their way into buildings.
If the snakes are venomous, there is the obvious risk of a venomous snakebite. But because it can be difficult for non-professionals to easily determine which snakes are venomous and which are not, all snakes should be treated as a threat and removed from the property.
In areas where snakes are common, it may be necessary to take a proactive approach to snake control and prevention. This requires an ongoing, professional snake control and prevention program.
Snake control and prevention begin with an on-site inspection and consultation by a Trutech® technician. He or she will look for snakes on the property, especially if one has been recently sighted, and will remove any snakes found if at all possible.
Our technician will also assess the accessibility of buildings for snakes, including doors, utility entry points and vents, plus potential habitats such as landscaping, wooded areas, even retention ponds. Since all snakes require specific habitat types and foods, our professionals can often tell which species are most common in a particular area.
For ongoing snake control, we offer two options: One is snake trapping in a particular area for a set amount of time. The type of trap and duration depends on your customer’s unique circumstances.
The other option involves a combination of techniques – monthly trapping, reduction of food sources, manipulation or modification of the landscape to make the area less desirable and sometimes a snake repellent. This aggressive snake control service is unique to Trutech and has been perfected over years of testing and experience. This approach often yields the best results and is usually the best option to keep the property as safe as possible from snakes. It is typically serviced on a monthly basis.
