Florida Snake Control & Removal

Snake Info: If you don't like snakes, you've picked the wrong state to live in. There are 45 species of snakes in Florida, 6 of which are venomous. They live in a variety of habitats, some aquatic, some land-based. All snakes are carnivores, and feed on a variety of small prey. Snakes can prove beneficial in reducing rats and mice, but many people prefer not to encounter snakes at all. It is worth noting that the venomous snakes are rare, and only 4 of the 6 venomous species live in central Florida. People commonly misidentify snakes. However, if you are unsure and want snake removal or prevention, give me a call.

NOTE: Do not provoke or attempt to handle any snake that you cannot properly identify - it may be a venomous snake. If you are bitten by a venomous snake, you should immediately seek medical attention at a hospital.

People often encounter snakes because their property provides good habitat. Like all animals, snakes seek out good places to hunt and hide. Sometimes this includes a person's property, or even house if there is access. Like many animals, snakes often choose flight before fight, but a startled or provoked snake will certainly defend itself. Many snake bite victims are bitten on the arms or hands, indicating that they messed with snakes they should not have. Bites can be avoided using common sense. Many snakes give a warning before a strike (such as the rattlesnake's tail rattle), but not always. Some snakes can be unpredictable. It is best to keep distance between yourself and a dangerous snake, at least up to half a snake's body length, which is a typical striking distance.

Let 24/7 Wildlife Removal safely identify, capture, & remove an unwanted snake on your property or in your house.

I have studied and spent time with almost all species of snakes of Florida, and I can identify them, and understand their behavior. I am skilled at capturing and safely transporting snakes. I have specialty professional snake tongs that help capture and remove snakes without inflicting injury to snake (or human). I safely transport snakes in a snake sack. It is unwise for the unskilled to attempt to catch snakes by hand.

If you consistently see snakes on your property or in your house, I can assist in snake prevention. I can modify the attraction the habitat provides, or eliminate entry points into houses. I do not apply a specially designed snake repellant that deters snakes from the area, because these products do not work. I do have snake traps which will capture a hiding snake in a building or outside.
