Snakes Provide a Needed Service
Snakes help to control rodent population such as rats, mice, and squirrels. They do eat other critters such as birds, bird eggs, lizards and some of them eat other snakes. The king snake is one such snake and they help to control the populations of rattlesnakes. As a homeowner, what should you do when there is a snake in your garage, shed, garden, or yard? Let’s explore your options.
- Move the Snake Yourself: People do move snakes, but it is a risky operation, and then there is the question of where do you release them. Most species of snakes have a large territory in which they hunt. If you have a snake on your property, chances are there is something that is attracting them. If you have a snake that takes up residence on your property, then there is a lot of food for it to eat. That also indicates another problem – Rodent infestations. Rodent control is an ongoing. The better you control rodent populations, the fewer snakes you see.
- Remove the Food Supply: Like everything else, snakes need to eat. Where there is no food, there are few snakes and those that are there are likely just passing through. If you keep the rodent population down, chances are you see very few if any snakes on your property. Reach out to us for Rodent Control Options.
- Call a Professional Snake Wrangler: Many people kill snakes that they find in their yard. The problem with that is that when there are no snakes, there are few predators for rodents. Also, because only four species of snakes are poisonous in Texas, people tend to kill snakes that do not pose a threat and that are doing the property owner a favor. It is much more beneficial to use a professional to move the snake, especially if the snake is venomous. It is not worth the risk of getting bit, and the antivenom is not only expensive, but it is also not pleasant medicine to endure.
