No matter how you feel about snakes in the wild, chances are that you don’t want random snakes to get into your home. In the event that a snake does somehow get inside, however, you can call our team at Wild Science Solutions to get the expert snake removal services you need. In this article, we’ll go over what you should do while you wait for our team to arrive.
- Leave the Snake Alone- The first piece of advice our snake removal experts have to offer is that you should leave any snakes you encounter alone. Not even venomous snakes will attack unless provoked, so your best option is for everyone to stay away from the snake, and to keep pets away too, until our removal experts can come and take it away.
- Try to Identify the Species- Another thing that our snake removal team recommends is to try to identify the snake’s species, if you can, as this will help you determine how serious a problem it poses. For example, if there’s a snake in your yard and you can be reasonably sure that it’s not venomous, you can simply leave it be and wait for it to go on its way—chances are that you’ll never see it again. On the other hand, if you think the snake is venomous, even if it’s outdoors, you should call to have it removed, just to be on the safe side.
- Contain the Snake- A third thing you should do while you wait for our snake removal team to arrive is to try to contain the snake as much as possible. This can mean closing off all the doors to the room that it’s in, or, if you’re feeling more confident and you don’t think the snake is poisonous, you can try to trap the snake under a bucket or empty wastebasket. If you manage to trap the snake that way, place a heavy object on top to keep the bucket in place until our team gets there.
