 WHY SNAKE REMOVAL IS IMPORTANT –
WHICH ONE(S) OF THESE SNAKES ARE DEADLY?

Most snakes that people run across are non-venomous snakes.   Non-venomous snakes are beneficial to have in your yard since they feed on snakes, rats, mice, and other rodents which transmit diseases, so many  people don’t mind sharing their yards with a few non-venomous snakes in return for their help keeping the rodent populations down.  So unless snakes really creep you out, there’s  no need to disturb them since they are doing no harm.

With that said we are not suggesting letting them stay if they are slithering around in your basement, living room, or bedroom, or in sensitive outdoor areas like children’s sandboxes and play areas – They need to be caught and removed from inside the house. Call us for Snake Catching, Snake Trapping & Snake Removal.

If you want to get the snakes OUT…
We will get them OUT!

SNAKE TRAPPING:

We have opted out of snake trapping based on the questionable results and irreversible damage done to native species is devastating.  We chose as a company to encourage people to pay for inspection & hand removal versus trapping.

HAND CATCHING SNAKES (up to a 1/2 hour)

The licensed Wildlife Technician(s) will search for up to a 1/2 hr to locate, hand capture and remove the snake(s) from your house or property.  In other words, it is not the number of snakes that determine the price.  It does not matter if it is Zero (0) snakes or One Hundred (100) the price is the same for the time spent. However if we remove venomous snakes there is an upcharge for handling them.

What is more beneficial than the skilled wildlife technician scouring your yard is the written habitat modifications that are emailed to you.  This is virtually a checklist of things to do in your yard to make your yard less hospitable to snakes.  The less comfortable they are the more likely they are to go elsewhere.

STEPS TO TAKE IF BITTEN:

1. Stay Calm. Get the patient to the nearest hospital right away! Call 911 or the Georgia Poison Center (1-800-222-1222) immediately.

2. Try to identify the snake by sight only. Look for color, patterns, and head shape.

3. Do not try to kill the snake; it could bite again.

4. Keep the patient calm and immobile (preferably lying down).

5. Keep the affected limb at an even level with the rest of the body.

6. Do not give the patient food, drink, or medication (e.g., pain medications, alcohol, etc.).

7. Do not use a tourniquet.

8. Do not cut the wound.

9. Do not try to suck out the venom.

10. Do not pack the wound in ice. Bites from non-venomous snakes should be washed with warm soapy water; a tetanus shot may be needed.
