Snakes in Montgomery Village

Montgomery Village is a small area in the heart of Montgomery County that is called home by over 40,000 residents. With plenty of land to hike, finding nature in Montgomery Village is never a hard task to complete. Along with the abundance of nature surrounding and incorporated in Montgomery Village, the increase in development as more families and couples move to the area can displace some wildlife in the area, sending them to find shelter elsewhere. That “elsewhere” can often times include your own home. The state of Maryland is currently home to 27 different species of snakes, including 2 species that are poisonous. Quite a few of these snakes call Montgomery Village their home. Some snakes that can be found in the area include:

  1. Black Rat Snake
  2. Northern Water Snake
  3. Northern Brownsnake
  4. Northern Copperhead

Of the listed snakes above, can you tell which the venomous species is? Would you be able to identify it should you ever come across it? What would you do if you found a snake in your home? If you can’t answer the above questions, let us help you out. Of the listed snakes, the Northern Copperhead is the venomous species. You can identify a Copperhead by its hourglass pattern and its copper to red head. If you find a snake in your home, call Mid Atlantic Wildlife Control.
