Protect Your Property
Learning the risk factors for a snake invasion is a key step in keeping your home protected. Snakes are always looking out for a place that provides them with food and shelter, so make your home less desirable for them.
- Rodent control: If you’re dealing with rats and mice on your property, snakes will soon follow.
- Check your home routinely for any entry point: Snakes have been known to get into a house through a hole that’s less than ¼ inch big. Keep your doors and windows sealed and check for cracks in the foundation.
- Keep your yard clear: Snakes are drawn to cool areas where they can stay hidden from sight. Keep the landscaping under control and remove all tall weeds and any random items scattered throughout the yard.
Don’t handle the snake. If you want to try and identify it, only do so if you’re able to maintain a safe distance at the same time. Any snake can try and attack if it feels threatened and even if it’s not a poisonous type, it can still pose a risk. If you are bitten, call poison control and seek medical attention immediately.
