Maryland and Delaware
Delaware and Maryland are home to over 20 species of snakes, including Northern Copperheads, Timber Rattlesnakes, Garter Snakes, and Northern Racers. They have been known to make their way into human dwellings and can end up in a variety of different places in your home. We often find snakes in a homeowner’s pool or screened porch, but they have also been known to find hidden spaces in a home’s interior to inhabit.
To many people there is no thought worse than having a snake slithering around their own home, but how can you tell if there’s a snake in your home? Besides simply seeing one, there are several signs you can look for to tell you that you have a snake in your home.
Look out for any shedding or molted skin. Snakes shed their skin in order to grow bigger, and finding any molted skin within your home is a pretty good indication. Snakes like to dwell in dark and cramp places, so if you hear anything moving around in the cramped areas of your home it could be a snake. You may also want to keep an eye out for rodents around your house, or lack thereof. If you usually see mice or other rodents around your home but haven’t recently, it could be because of a snake.
Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to tell if a snake is venomous just by observing it, and even the most docile snakes tend to bite if threatened. Bay Area Wildlife has removed our fair share of snakes over the years, and have developed proven snake removal processes that do not put the health and safety of our staff or our customers at risk.
Most snakes are harmless and will only attack as a means of self-defense, but if you don’t want to wait for it to leave on its own accord, we can help. Many people have a fear of snakes and would want to see them killed, but we try to save the snake’s life whenever possible. We can ensnare any snake with our snake tongs and will relocate them securely back into the wild.
We are licensed and insured to practice the safe and effective removal of snakes and other wildlife from anywhere they are not welcome. If you have a snake in your home and need it removed immediately, we’ve got your back. We offer emergency animal removal services 24/7 and can provide you with speedy and reliable service.
Do you have a snake in your home that you’d like to get rid of? If so, then we can help. Some snakes are poisonous and all pack a vicious bite, that’s why it’s best to leave their capture up to the professionals. No matter what kind of snake you have in your home, chances are we’ve dealt with them before. Give us a call today and we would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
Snakes are among the most misunderstood animals out there. Snake phobia is oftentimes irrational and can lead to people wanting the snake to be killed, but we don’t believe that snakes deserve to die. We get asked questions regarding snakes all the time and wanted to take some time to help people understand them.
Once bitten, one of the most important things you can do is try to identify the snake. Identifying the snake can help you figure out if it’s poisonous, and if so, which anti-venom is needed. Even if it’s not a venomous snake, the bite could still bleed quite a bit. If you’ve been bitten, you need to seek the assistance of a medical expert.
First off, there is no real full-proof to tell if a snake is poisonous (technically the correct term is venomous). Some of the most common venomous snakes in the United States include pit vipers, cottonmouths, copperheads, and coral snakes (you can remember coral snakes by their color pattern of red/black/yellow). For your safety, you should assume that any snake you see could pose a threat to you and should be treated with extreme caution.
