Snakes generally avoid people as much as we avoid them, but sometimes our paths cross. If snakes ever come to disturb peace in your Bethesda home, just give Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control a call and we’ll remove nuisance snakes safely and humanely. Whether they are interrupting your outdoor summer fun or turning your house into the “snakes on a plane” movie scene, consider them evicted!
We often get calls from Maryland residents who think they encountered a poisonous snake. In some cases, that turns out to be true, but many times snakes get misidentified. There are two venomous snake species common in Maryland: Northern Copperhead and Timber Rattlesnake. Neither is brightly-color as you would expect from a dangerous snake. Both, in-fact, are rather plain looking and can be easily mistaken for a different snake.
Here is a video showing both of Maryland’s venomous snakes up close. For your own safety, never intentionally approach a snake like this—you will surely get bitten unless you are in a zoo. You will also notice how well Northern Copperhead blends in with foliage—this is something to keep in mind if you are into hiking in Maryland woods.
If you get bitten by either of these snakes, seek medical attention immediately. Although in most cases these bites cause only local tissue damage, in some instances they can be lethal, especially to children, elderly and people with a compromised immune system.
It’s one thing seeing an occasional snake when you are mowing the grass or walking a dog. It’s different when your pets get bitten by a snake or when you find one in your home. Snakes may gravitate to places that provide abundant food sources, which includes mice, bird eggs, larger insects, etc. If you live in the country, you probably have plenty of each, especially in summer. And if your home is not very well sealed, snakes may get inside and make themselves comfortable in close proximity to hot water pipes or other heat sources. Most snakes enter at ground level, but some are also good climbers and may enter from the roof and could even climb your siding.
If you keep seeing snakes in your home or on your property, get in touch with Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control for help!
