Snakes are generally shy animals who want nothing to do with people. They can be beneficial because they eat mice, slugs, grubs, insects, and other pests and they can be food for other wildlife such as hawks. Although most species of snakes in North America are harmless, there are some venomous species that can pose risks to people and pets. The National Pesticide Information Center collected the resources below to help you find ways to keep snakes away without posing unnecessary risks to you, your family, pets, or the environment.
Are snakes dangerous?
Yes – and no. There are many, many different varieties of snake from the non-venomous garden snake to the venomous and dangerous copperhead. There are no infallible ways to know that a snake is venomous, so our first recommendation if you experience any sort of snake in your home or business is to immediately call pest control professionals to come and assess the situation.
There are a few rules of thumbs you can follow when trying to identify whether or not a snake is venomous or poisonous, however. Most venomous snakes in North America have triangle shaped heads and oblong slit-shaped pupils. Most poisonous snakes have heat sensing pits (small nostril-like areas) located beneath their eyes and commonly have bright coloring. Either way, if you see a snake on your property that you don’t recognize – don’t approach it without professional help.
Why do I have snakes?
Like any other predator, snakes are attracted to easy food sources, so if you have a snake infestation it’s very likely that there are other pests in and around your home as well. Calling in pest control professionals to do a thorough sweep of your home or business on a regular basis can help you make sure there aren’t any food sources hiding in your home to bring in snakes.
How can I prevent snakes?
Being surprised by a snake in your yard or garden is never a pleasant experience, but there are ways to motivate them away from your home or business. The first thing to do is make your outdoor living space unappealing for snakes by clearing away piles of debris and leaves they could build nests in from the environment. That plus making sure there are no holes in your home’s exterior walls for them to get in through are going to be your best defenses against a potential infestation.
