Snake Removal Houston TX

Snakes aren’t all bad....except when they’re venomous. The danger posed by snakes can either be mild (raise your blood pressure) or as serious as death or loss of limbs. A non-venomous snake bite will only wound, but a venomous snake may kill. If you aren’t sure what kind of snake you’re dealing with, you need to give us a call right now!

More often than not, the only harm a snake can do is to frighten people. A snake would much more likely to find a small crack to crawl away to than to bite you, though it can happen if they are cornered or if you try to grab them. Thankfully, the worst that can happen from a non-venomous snake bite is a painful puncture wound.

Other than that, they don’t create much of a mess and there’s no risk of infestation unless there is a number of snakes that have been staying at your place for quite a long time.

Most Common Venomous Snake in Houston

Rattlesnakes and cottonmouths (water moccasins) are by far the most common snakes that people worry about. And for good reason. One bite from a rattlesnake or cottonmouth can have serious consequences. Although in this day and age it is relatively rare to die from a snake bite from any kind of snake, getting bit by a venomous snake often leads to severe pain and disfigurement, as well as a hefty hospital bill going up to $100,000 dollars.

Coral snakes and copperheads are also venomous snakes common to the Houston area. Houston Copperheads are not as deadly as rattlesnakes, but their venom can still do considerable harm. A Coral snake is a shy snake and not as likely to get agitated and strike. Houston Copperheads are pit vipers and are naturally much more likely to strike at you. For this reason, coral snakes do not create quite the same level of fear as rattlesnakes do. Quite a beautiful snake with its bright colors, the coral snake is often seen in flower gardens.

Another Wildlife Problem: Rodent Control and Removal

Apart from being creepy, the thing you should really wonder about is what attracted the snakes to your home, yard, or shed in the first place.

Snakes may be looking for shelter to hibernate, though it’s very likely they were attracted to a food source that can be found in your home. That could mean you have a rodent problem. They will hunt for them in barns, food storage areas, and barns, and then hide out in the dark and damp corners, holes, nooks, and cracks as they digest their prey. Running into more than one wildlife problem would be quite a headache and you would want wildlife professionals to handle such a situation.

Making an Unattractive Environment for A Snake

To remove potential food sources, take steps to remove and control rodents and insect populations, such as maintaining clean living spaces and storing food in rodent-proof containers. In areas with high native snake populations, snake-proof fences may be erected to keep the slithery pests away from children in play areas, though enclosing entire yards with snake-proof fencing often proves prohibitively expensive.
