Understanding and Addressing the Nuisance of Snake Infestations

There are many different types of wildlife that regularly infest Central Florida residences. However, few can be more lethal than a snake infestation. Here is what you need to know about dealing with the annoying and dangerous nuisance of a snake infestation on your property.

Preventing Snake Infestations

While snake infestations are not always preventable, there are some things that you can do to make your home less desirable for snakes and discourage snake infestations.

  • Check for gaps – Most infestations begin with an easy-to-access entrance that the pests use to get inside of your home. Checking around your home for gaps and crevices that snakes can slide through and sealing them up.
  • Keep your backyard tidy – Snakes are particularly attracted to overgrown yards as they feel safest when surrounded by lots of vegetation to hide within. If you keep your backyard well trimmed, snakes will probably find it less desirable and won’t use it as a hiding place.

Snake Infestation Removal Methods

Addressing a nuisance snake infestation head-on with efficient removal or deterrent methods is ideal. Here are a few methods that you may want to consider:

  • Snake traps – Snake traps can typically be purchased online or at your local hardware store. One of the most common types of snake traps is the glue trap, which will trap snakes with a powerful adhesive and keeps them in place.
  • Snake repellents – Snake repellents can also be helpful in your snake removal efforts. Snake repellents are low-contact methods made of chemicals that irritate snakes and encourage them to seek shelter elsewhere.

The Importance of Keeping a Safe Distance Away from Nuisance Snakes

While not all snakes are venomous, a snake bite is going to hurt, with or without venom.
