Maryland is home to almost 30 snake species—some common throughout the state and some only in certain areas. There are at least 3-5 snake species, such as the black rat snake, garter snake and northern copperhead, that are fairly common in Mount Airy. If any of them start bothering you at home or outdoors, you can rely on Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control for professional and humane snake removal in Mount Airy.
The two poisonous snake species you are likely to come across in Mount Airy are the northern copperhead and the timber rattlesnake. Both look similar with dark and light patterns on their skin. However, the copperhead has a more orange color to blend in with foliage, and the rattlesnake is more black and gray to blend in with rocks and ground. Of course, a rattlesnake can sometimes be heard before you even see it thanks to the rattle. However, don’t rely on it, because it could be a young snake that can’t rattle just yet, or the rattle could have been damaged or lost.
Here are a few other tips for identifying a venomous snake by its shed skin if you happen to stumble upon it:
If you see a snake that you suspect may be poisonous, follow these steps:
Most snake bites happen by accident when a person doesn’t see a snake and steps on it or too close to it. If you ever get bitten by a venomous snake, seek medical attention right away. You will need to receive a dose of anti-venom ASAP to counteract the swelling.
Sometimes a snake may enter your home in search of food or warmth during colder months. In summer, some snakes may find the space underneath your porch or deck perfect for their nest. If that’s the case, you could easily end up with more than a dozen snakes slithering around in your yard. Even if they are not poisonous, they can still bite and make it difficult to enjoy the outdoors. How do you get rid of them?
While killing a snake may cross your mind, don’t do it. Many snakes in Maryland are either endangered or on a watch list, and hurting them would be against the law. Instead, get in touch with a humane Mount Airy snake removal company like Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control. We not only remove snakes, but also investigate where they came from and what attracted them in your home. Then we help you make the necessary modifications to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
