Common Snake Problems in Silver Spring
Snakes in the Yard
Snakes are reptiles that live in the wild, so it’s not uncommon to find a snake in your yard. If you do see a snake outside, simply walk away and let the snake do the same. Snakes don’t want conflicts with humans, so they naturally try to stay away.
But what if you are working in your garden and keep seeing snakes slither between your kale plants? Or maybe your dog was bitten by a snake while playing in your backyard? If snakes pose a threat or simply bother you on an ongoing basis, now is the time to seek professional help. We can help you locate and remove the nuisance snakes from your property and make it safe again.
Snakes in a Home
Snakes are very flexible and can often fit through the tiniest holes. If your home has unscreened vents, gaps under doors or cracks in the siding, snakes can get in. Some snakes are also good climbers and can even make it to the roof, looking for the access to the attic.
Snakes usually enter our homes for one of the two reasons: food and warmth. The warmth factor doesn’t need an explanation, but the food factor is not that obvious. You see, snakes eat mice and bird eggs, which often lead them to your attic or basement. If you have a mouse problem or if birds keep nesting in your gutters, your home may become a snake magnet.
Is This Snake Venomous?
We often get calls from Silver Spring residents who are sure they have encountered a venomous snake. Although it’s always a possibility, many times snakes get misidentified. Below are videos showing the two Maryland venomous snake species up close. But either way, you should not approach a snake regardless of whether it’s poisonous or not.
