At Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control, we frequently get calls about snake removal in Chevy Chase. Sometimes it turns out to be a harmless garden snake, but there’ve been more than a few cases when we removed a venomous copperhead from someone’s back yard. No matter what kind of snake crosses your path and interferes with your leisure, our knowledgeable snake removal technicians are here to help.
Should I Worry If I See a Snake?
To be fair, seeing a snake is not always a cause for panic. After all, there are 27 snake species native to Maryland and they all have to live somewhere. If you are in your back yard and you see a snake slithering through the grass, it’s probably just passing through. Leave it alone and it’s likely you’ll never see it again. But that’s not always the case.
When you should consider getting professional help:
- When you see snakes on your property all the time and this prevents you from enjoying the outdoors as much as you’d like.
- When you see a poisonous snake.
- When you or your pets have been bitten by a snake on your property.
- When there is a snake or snakes in your home.
What to Do About Snakes in Chevy Chase
If your case fits in any of the above scenarios, it’s wise to call a Chevy Chase snake removal company like Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control. If you are not sure whether the snake is venomous or not, don’t approach it and wait until our arrival. Our snake removal technician will assess the snake, inspect your property and let you know if you have something to worry about.
If snakes are denning on your property, we will suggest ways to modify their habitat to make it less hospitable. For example, snakes favor areas with tall grass, as well as spaces under sheds, wood piles, large stones and similar objects. Eliminating these snake magnets or making them inaccessible will likely cause snakes to move out.
What if There Are Snakes in My Home?
If you find a snake inside your home, call us right away. It could be a one-time visitor or there could be a snake nest in your walls, ceiling or under the floor. If a snake problem remains untreated for a long time, it can lead to extensive damage. Getting to the snakes living behind walls often means removing drywall, and this isn’t cheap. Snakes often choose to settle in homes that have mice, which means a steady source of food. At Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control, we can help you eliminate both nuisance animals and snake-proof your home against possible future problems.
