TIPS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH UNWANTED SNAKES IN Kettering
Beware: Ohio Has Venomous Snakes That Can Bite If Provoked
Snake Repellents and Prevention Used By Kettering Snake Removal Service
Snakes need just a few things to thrive; shelter (your house or under your porch), water (nearby creek or pond), and a food source (rodents such as mice, shrews, & chipmunks). In order to remedy your snake problem, we locate and find why the snakes are on your property during our inspection. We may recommend habitat modification such as thinning the flowerbed or mowing the grass lower than normal. See our page on how we can alter your landscape to make it unfavorable for snakes. We may find a water source that isn’t necessary such as an old bird bath that can be removed.
most common thing we find on our snake inspections
The most common thing we find on our snake inspections is rodent activity in or near the home. The snakes in or around your house are being attracted by something and our goal is to find and if possible remove the attraction. We will also seek out and find gaps in your foundation that snakes may be using as entry and egress points and inform you of the best approach for total snake extermination.
Snake repellents often fail as they are not properly used or are the wrong type of repellent to begin with. We do not recommend the use of ammonia, moth balls, or any non-labelled chemical for snake harassment or hazing. A June 2003 United States Fish and Wildlife Services tech note bulletin listed cinnamon, clove, and eugenol oils as effective snake repellents but we have not had proven successes. We prefer a more permanent solution such as exclusion repairs to prevent their entry into a structure or by physically removing the snakes and relocating to our wildlife sanctuary.
Snake Trapping and Removal
Kettering Snake Removal Service only recommends removal of snakes using snake tongs with bite resistant gloves or by setting snakes traps to catch the snake if immediate removal is not possible when we arrive on the job. Trapping snakes is an effective option for removal but can take time to work if the snakes are only traveling the property or weather conditions don’t favor snake behavior. We carry custom designed and baited traps for snake capture specially made by our snake exterminator.
Please do not aggravate or handle snakes if you are not able to identify the type of snake as it may be venomous and can bite if provoked. If you are bitten by a snake, seek medical attention and try to identify the snake using Trek Ohio or by taking a photo of the snake to show your health care professional. The Miami Valley is not known to have venomous snakes but you can never be to careful.
Many people illegally own venomous snakes as pets and if one happens to get lose you don’t want to be the one to try to remove the snake on your own and risk a snake bite. The majority of venomous snake populations start around the Chillicothe area of southwest Ohio with copperheads and timber rattlesnakes, but we have seen them farther north in this area so always use caution unless you are properly trained in snake control.
Snake Bite Prevention Tips from CDC
Some bites, such as those inflicted when you accidentally step on a snake in the woods, are nearly impossible to prevent. However, there are precautions that can reduce your chances of being bitten by a snake, including the following:
- Leave snakes alone. Many people are bitten because they try to kill a snake or get too close to it.
- Stay out of tall grass unless you wear thick leather boots and remain on hiking paths as much as possible.
- Keep hands and feet out of areas you cannot see. Do not pick up rocks or firewood unless you are out of a snake’s striking distance.
- Be cautious and alert when climbing rocks.
We offer Professional Snake Removal Service and keep them out by sealing the openings on your house to prevent them from coming back inside
We also offer rodent removal services for long term rodent control which greatly reduces the chances of snakes coming near your home. If you get rid of the snake’s food source (i.e. rodents, especially deer mice, the house mouse, shrews, and voles) the likelihood of snakes staying around your yard or trying to get into your house is drastically minimized.
