The West Termite, Pest & Lawn process
Once we locate the areas on your property where snakes are nesting, we will set traps to capture live snakes. On our follow-up visit, we will collect the traps and safely remove snakes from your property.
We will spread repellant to appropriate areas around your home and property. This will help dissuade snakes from lingering and will also help ward off other pests which can be attractive food sources to snakes.
Prevention & Maintenance
We will offer strategies to discourage snakes from nesting on your property (such as suggestions of what to remove, such as wood piles and debris) and advise you on how you can prevent them from entering your home in the future.
What to expect with West Termite, Pest & Lawn
The safest way to deal with a snake pest control problem is to hire a professional exterminator. Snakes can nest in hard to see places, such as under leaf litter, inside hollowed logs, or underground in abandoned animal burrows. Snakes might even take refuge in domestic areas such as a shed or garage. Once you find a snake nest, it can be dangerous to try to capture the snake (or more than one snake) who lives there on your own. While some snakes are non-venomous, venomous snakes can inflict major injuries with just one bite. Store bought or homemade snake repellents and do-it-yourself traps just aren’t as reliable in helping you get rid of snakes to protect yourself, your family, and/or your pets.
It can be challenging to tell what kind of snake is living on your property. It is a common misconception that all venomous snakes have “cat’s eye” or slit-shaped pupils and that all non-venomous snakes have round pupils. In Arkansas, the Coral Snake is a venomous snake native to the state that happens to have round pupils. Plus, if you are close enough to look at a snake’s pupils, you are probably too close for your own safety!
