Should I Bother Removing a Snake?

For the most part, the snakes you find outdoors are harmless with the exception of the two venomous snake species common in Maryland: northern copperhead and timber rattlesnake. If you see a snake that doesn’t look venomous, the best course of action is typically to turn around and walk in the opposite direction. Remember that 9 times out of 10 a snake is as terrified of you and you are of it. Snakes don’t want any trouble, so just let it get back to its business.

If the snake is bothering you, such as blocking the pathway where you want to go or acting aggressive, it may be a good idea to give us a call. Be sure to safely trap a snake under a cardboard box or a plastic container to make sure it’s still there when we arrive. Unless you came across a snake den, most snakes typically don’t sit still for a long time.

How Do I Know if the Snake is Poisonous?

When it comes to poisonous snakes, most people want them removed from their property to reduce the likelihood of getting bitten. This is a smart decision, but how do you recognize a venomous snake? Unlike tropical snakes, snakes in Maryland don’t have brightly colored skin to alert everyone about the danger. In fact, both the copperhead and the timber rattlesnake are rather plain-looking snakes that camouflage well with the ground and foliage.

Here is a good video showing them up close, so that you can learn to recognize them:

What if There are Snakes in My Home?

It may sound unsettling, but it’s rather common for a snake to wander into a home. A snake may do it to seek warmth in the fall or enter your house by accident while following mice. Most homes that have snake problems typically also have a rodent infestations. Snakes inside a house often live in the attic, behind walls or underneath the floor. They hide very well, so most homeowners don’t realize they have snakes until it’s been a while. Commons sings that you have snakes may include snake skin and tiny baby snakes that have just hatched. Of course, if you see a snake inside your home, you should be alarmed and call professionals right away.
