Snake Removal Atlanta

Posted at April 17, 2013 | By : | Categories : Uncategorized | 0 Comment

Critter Control of Atlanta has been removing several species of snakes from properties in the Atlanta area for over 15 years.

April is a busy month for our wildlife technicians as many snakes are seeking sunlight after a long winter nap.  Snakes are cold-blooded and rely on their surroundings for body heat.  The first sunny day after a rainy day is when most homeowners call us with snake sightings as they are seeking to warm themselves so they can move more quickly and catch prey.

Occasionally, snakes searching for food such as rodents or bird eggs, will seek refuge in a barn, shed, crawlspace or attic.  The best way to keep snakes out of your home is to prevent their food sources from entering your home.

The wildlife technicians at Critter Control of Atlanta not only come out to your property and safely remove the snake but also find out what the snake was after, such as a rodent issue the homeowner was unaware of.

Of the 41 species of snakes in Georgia only 6 are venomous ( Copperhead, Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake, Canebreak rattlesnake, Pigmy rattlesnake, Cottonmouth and Eastern Coral snake.

In Georgia it is illegal to possess or kill non-game wildlife such as non-venomous snakes as they are very beneficial to our environment and help to control the rodent population.

Rodent Control and Management are key in keeping snakes out of your home and off your property.
