Snakes fascinate. Snakes intimidate. Some snakes pose a danger. Other snakes are harmless. And whether they are seen as slimy creatures or colorful curiosities, snakes play important environmental roles in the fragile ecosystems of the nation's wildlife areas. A bite from a poisonous snake should should always be considered a medical emergency. Victims of snake bites that can't positively identify the snake, should seek prompt care. Even a bite from a so-called "harmless" snake can cause an infection or allergic reaction in some people.
Verminators are snake removing experts in Snellville and all of Atlanta. According to the National Wildlife Control Training Program, time spent educating people about Snakes is valuable. Verminators will inspect your entire propery identifing areas where snakes are eating, drinking, and living. Verminators are experts in snake and copperhead exclusion. Snakes are particularly attracted to rodents and insects, and cool damp dark areas associated with out-buildings and basements. All openings 1/4 inch or larger should be sealed to exclude snakes. Holes in masonry foundations (poured concrete and concrete blocks, stones or bricks) should be sealed to exclue snakes.
Nuisance Snake Control
Snakes can be controlled whenever they are active (e.g. temperatures above 50 degrees F). According to the National Wildlife Control Training Program, a properly constructed, snake-proof fence will keep out all venomous copperheads and most non venemous snakes (some non-venomous snakes are good climbers). A snake-proof fence should be made of heavy galvanized 1/4 inch mesh hardware cloth that is 36 inches tall. Bury the lower edge 4 to 6 inches into the ground. The fence should be slanted outward from the bottom to the top.
A boundary made of lava rocks may be as effective as a fence. According to the National Wildlife Control Training Program, the course texture of lava rock appearts to divert many rodents and snakes, including pit vipers. Border an area with lava rock that is atleast 12 inches in width to deter snakes from entering. Lava rock is a common landscaping item and can aid in the exclusion of snakes and copperheads while maintaining and aesthetic view in the yard
The primary food sources of most snakes escpecially the larger oes, is birds, eggs of birds, and rodents such as rats, mice, and chipmunks. No program for controlling rodent eating snakes is complete without removing the rodents. Put all sources for possible sources of food for rodents in secure containers. Clean up all food for pets after each feeding and store where it is unavailable to rodents. Keep all vegetation closely mowed around buildings. Remove bushes, shrubs, rocks, boards, and debris lying close to the ground, as these provide cover for rodents and snakes. Alter your landscape to reduce areas required for basking.
Snake Denning Cover. Snakes do not nest. They seek locations for protection and thermoregulation. For example, a sun-exposed rock provides warmth and a rock wall provides protection and cool temperatures. Underground dens, or hibernacula, protect snakes from freezing temperatures. Hibernacula form around structures including sump pumps, rock walls, basements, crawlspaces, and other locations that are safe from winter freezing. A single hibernaculum may contain multiple species and hundreds of snakes.
The behavior of snakes is more determined by temperature than the seasons. Snakes become lethargic at temperatures below 50 degrees farenheit. In most cases, snakes will move away when approached. Snakes do not charge or attack people, with the exception of racers. Snakes react when cornered with a variety of defensive tactics that vary by species. Defensive tactics include playing dead by exposing the belly, hissing, opening the mouth in a menacing manner, coiling, emitting an odorous fluid from the vent, striking and biting.
The probability of a bite from a snake being fatal in the US is 0.0002%. Typical victims are white males between the ages of 18 to 40 who have purposely been handling a snake. In about of 1/4 of these cases involved alcohol.
