Snake Pest Control

Snakes are without a doubt some of the scariest pests to discover in your home or on your property. Although some snakes are non-venomous, all snakes can bring diseases into your home, and venomous snakes can really hurt you, your family, or your pets. The safest way to deal with a snake pest control problem is to hire a professional exterminator. Call on West Termite, Pest & Lawn to get rid of snakes for good.

The West Termite, Pest & Lawn Process

Pest Control Company

Step 1: Assessment

One of our exterminators will inspect your property to locate where snakes are nesting on your property and/or entering your home. We will look for clues such as shed skins and droppings to help identify what types of snakes are frequenting your areas. We will also inspect for any potential food sources that may be attracting snakes, such as insects, rodents, or other pests.

 

Step 2: Trap Snakes

Once we locate the areas on your property where snakes are nesting, we will set traps to capture live snakes. On our follow-up visit, we will collect the traps and safely remove snakes from your property.

Step 3: Place Repellant

                                                                                                      We will spread repellant to appropriate areas around your home and property. This will help dissuade snakes from lingering and will also help ward off other pests which can be attractive food sources to snakes.

The safest way to deal with a snake pest control problem is to hire a professional exterminator. Snakes can nest in hard to see places, such as under leaf litter, inside hollowed logs, or underground in abandoned animal burrows. Snakes might even take refuge in domestic areas such as a shed or garage. Once you find a snake nest, it can be dangerous to try to capture the snake (or more than one snake) who lives there on your own. While some snakes are non-venomous, venomous snakes can inflict major injuries with just one bite. Store bought or homemade snake repellents and do-it-yourself traps just aren’t as reliable in helping you get rid of snakes to protect yourself, your family, and/or your pets.

It can be challenging to tell what kind of snake is living on your property. It is a common misconception that all venomous snakes have “cat’s eye” or slit-shaped pupils and that all non-venomous snakes have round pupils. In Arkansas, the Coral Snake is a venomous snake native to the state that happens to have round pupils. Plus, if you are close enough to look at a snake’s pupils, you are probably too close for your own safety!
