Found in every region of the United States, snakes are legless reptiles that in still fear in many people. Common species range from the harmless garter snake to more dangerous vipers. While they are largely beneficial because their diet is comprised of many pests, like mice and rats, some snakes are venomous and pose threats to humans.

APPEARANCE

Ranging in color from dull brown and black to green, snakes maintain an appearance that usually depends on their surroundings. For example, aquatic snakes have flattened bodies, while snakes that live in trees are typically longer and more slender than those that live on the ground. They are highly flexible and may feature patterns along their bodies that aid in camouflage. The shape of a snake’s head can be used to determine whether they’re likely to be dangerous or not, as venomous snakes usually have triangularly shaped heads.

DIET

Larger snakes, like pythons and boas, eat larger meals, such as deer or pigs. Smaller grass snakes mainly subsist on small insects, fish, and frogs. Most of the snakes found in the United States feed on rodents, birds, eggs, lizards, other snakes, and small mammals.

HABITAT

As exothermic reptiles, snakes need to regulate their body temperature and must live in areas with consistent access to heat. They prefer to inhabit deserts, forested regions, marshes, plains, and residential areas. Snakes make nests in the ground, treetops, swamps, on farms, in abandoned buildings, and in sheds. We most commonly remove snakes from properties in Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Louisiana, and South Carolina.

TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

Snakes enter both homes and yards in search of food and shelter. Generally shy, snakes avoid human contact when possible and nest in high grasses, wood piles, decks, barns, and sheds. The reptiles enter homes through gaps or cracks in building foundations.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

The fear of snakes sometimes supersedes the actual problems associated with the pests. Some snakes feed on young chickens, though they usually target easier prey. Venomous snake bites cause pain and even fatality. When bitten, the snake-bite victim requires immediate medical attention.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Seal cracks and holes in home foundations to reduce the possibility of snakes entering. Remove hiding places and potential food sources by taking actions like maintaining lawns, storing wood piles off the ground and in sheds or barns, sealing trash bins with fitted lids, and cleaning clutter from basements and attics. Erecting snake-proof fences around gardens and sheds is another sound form of snake control.

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

When cornered, snakes will try to strike out and bite, so contacting a trained wildlife removal specialist is the safest option when it comes to snake control. The experts at Trutech humanely capture pest snakes to ensure the safety of all nearby residents.
