Why You Should Hire A Professional For Snake Control Services
July 21, 2017
Whether you live in our service area of Rome, Georgia, or somewhere else in the country, when it comes to snake control, there are two pest control methods. You can be proactive and create conditions that deter and exclude snakes, or you can be reactive and wait till a snake appears, hunt it down, and get rid of it. In both cases, it is best to hire someone with training and experience to do the job. Here's why.
Proactive Snake Control
There is an ecosystem in your yard. A trained and certified pest professional understands this ecosystem from the tiniest bugs in your soil to the largest wildlife that can wander into your yard. A professional pest control technician knows that the presence of one creature can be an attractant for another creature that sees that creature as food. By controlling the first, you can have some control over the second. When it comes to keeping snakes out of your yard, you need to hire someone who knows how to manage the ecosystem in your yard. This includes, but is not limited to, a control of food, water, and harborage on your property.
Reactive Snake Control
If you've seen a snake around your home, garage, shed, or outbuildings, and you want it removed, there are a few things to consider:
Capturing a snake in a trap is tricky. And, while it is possible to use a trap to capture a snake, even if you're successful, you won't know if that was a mother snake with several baby snakes nearby. A professional will deal with the whole problem.
Trapping and removing a snake can be dangerous. We have several poisonous snakes in Georgia such as the cottonmouth, the copperhead, several rattlesnakes, and more.
Most snake bites occur during attempts to remove them.
Some non-venomous snakes are protected. If you kill them, you might be in for some legal troubles. A professional has the permits to legally remove non-venomous snakes that are protected by law.
