Have you noticed snakes are making a home on your property? It may be time for a full snake inspection of your property. Although snakes are not very aggressive, venomous snakes exist and they can be lethal. If you encounter a snake directly, it’s important to keep a safe distance away from the snake because snakes will attack out of fear. If you lack knowledge of snakes, you can never be too sure that the snakes on your property are not venomous snakes. A professional snake handler can conduct a snake inspection of your property to identify the types of snakes – nonvenomous snakes and venomous snakes. Out of the 27 snakes in Maryland, two are venomous snakes. Those two types of snakes are copperhead and timber rattlesnake. The average female snake can birth 12 live young at a time. Usually, the inexperienced eye cannot accurately identify a snake type, let alone, a venomous snake, until the death of a snake has happened. One can identify a venomous snake by reviewing the tail scale patterns as well as the elliptical eye pupil. For example, a venomous snake like the Pit Viper has an elliptical eye pupil, while a non-venomous snake has a round eye pupil. A professional wildlife control snake handler can identify whether or not snakes on your property are deadly. It is important to hire a wildlife control company that specializes in snake control because snakes are great for pest control and there is no reason to kill them as most snakes are harmless. The only truly harmful snakes out there are non-venomous snakes. To maintain snake control, keep your lawn mowed and remove tall grass, weeds, and bushes from your property. If you see venomous snakes dead on your property, never designate yourself as a snake handler. Every year in Maryland the Maryland Poison Control Center reports 2-6 venomous snake bites. It is especially dangerous for children that suffer from venous snake bites as the venom can absorb their bodies and the likelihood of fatality is more than any other group of people.
