Signs You Have a Snake Problem

If you suspect you have a snake problem, it's essential to address it promptly to ensure your safety and the wellbeing of your property. Here are some signs that may indicate you have a snake infestation:

1. Shed Snake Skins: Finding discarded snake skins around your home or yard is a clear indication that snakes are present and potentially breeding nearby.

2. Snake Sightings: Regularly spotting snakes in or around your property is an obvious sign of their presence. Snakes may be found slithering across your lawn, on pathways, or even inside your home.

3. Unexplained Holes and Burrows: Snakes often create holes or burrows for shelter and laying eggs. Keep an eye out for these openings near the foundation of your home or in garden areas.

4. Disturbed Pets or Livestock: If your pets or livestock seem agitated, nervous, or show signs of injury without a clear cause, it could be due to encounters with snakes.

5. Reduced Rodent Population: Snakes are natural predators of rodents. If you notice a significant decrease in the rodent population around your property, it might be because snakes are actively hunting them.

6. Unpleasant Odor: Some snake species emit a musky odor when threatened or disturbed. If you detect a strange smell in and around your property, it might be due to nearby snakes.

7. Tracks and Trails: Snakes leave distinctive tracks and trails in dusty or muddy areas. Keep an eye out for these patterns, which can help identify the presence of snakes.

If you suspect a snake problem, it's crucial to consult with a professional pest control service or wildlife expert. Attempting to handle snakes without proper knowledge and equipment can be dangerous and is not recommended. Professionals can assess the situation, safely remove any snakes, and provide advice on preventing future infestations. 

The Dangers of a Snake Problem on Your Property

A snake problem on your property can pose serious risks to you and your family's safety. These slithery creatures can be venomous, invasive, and aggressive. If you have snakes, you must take precautions against them.

Snakes can also damage your property.

They can cause structural damage, entering buildings through small openings like gaps in walls, damaged vents, or cracks in foundations. Once inside, they can damage insulation, electrical wires, and other structural components.

Snakes also leave behind droppings and shed their skin, creating an unsanitary environment. Additionally, their presence attracts other pests like rodents or insects.

Some snake species may feed on garden plants, fruits, or vegetables, ruining your landscaping efforts.

Snake Species Commonly Found in Asheville, NC

Our area is home to a diverse range of snake species.

We have the northern copperhead. You can easily recognize this breed by its distinctive copper-colored head.

The eastern rat snake is another frequent sight in the region. It often preys on small animals and rodents.

You should be particularly aware of timber rattlesnakes. These nasty critters are venomous. You can find them in the mountainous regions. They typically avoid confrontation with humans, but they do strike when they feel threatened.

Our Snake Control Process

First we inspect the area, locating the snake and identifying the species. After finding the unwelcome guest, we prefer to capture it alive and relocate it to a more suitable habitat.

Afterward, we work with you to create a plan that helps prevent future snake infestations.

Preventative Measures to Keep Snakes Away

Our snake removal team can deal with your existing snake problems. However, you should also take preventative measures to help prevent snakes from returning.

Here are some tips to help prevent snakes from entering your home:

  • Install a snake-proof fence around your property.
  • Keep your yard tidy and free of debris. Try to limit piles of wood or rocks where snakes can hide.
  • Trim back overgrown vegetation, and keep grass and shrubs well-maintained. This step helps eliminate hiding spots for snakes.
  • Seal any cracks or holes in your home's foundation, walls, doors, and windows. Doing so helps keep snakes from entering your home.
  • Keep bird feeders and pet food elevated to avoid attracting rodents. Mice and rats are a food source for many snakes. Keeping them away keeps the snakes away.
