If you have a rodent, bird or bat problem, you may soon have a snake problem.Snake Problems in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky

Snakes are found throughout the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. And whether big or small, poisonous or non-poisonous, the surprise of a snake is rarely a welcomed sight. Snakes can slither into the tiniest opening in your house in their search for food in your basement. They can climb up through wall and ceiling spaces to your attic and find a safe nesting spot. And once in your house they may not be able to find the way out and can show up anytime, anywhere.

A snake problem is a threat to you, your family and even your pets. Snakes will generally avoid contact with humans but if threatened, a snake will strike quickly and without warning. Just knowing that a snake is somewhere in your home or business can be unsettling and impact your quality of life and productivity.

What is a snake doing in my house?

Most likely, looking for food and shelter. Snakes will follow mice, bats, chipmunks, and even insects into your home or business through the smallest of openings. If birds are nesting around your house, snakes will slither and climb searching for bird eggs and even baby birds. If you have a rodent, bird or bat problem, you may soon have a snake problem.

Snakes are also looking for nesting sites. Your home can be the perfect warm spot in the winter and a cool spot in the summer. A snake will lay eggs in your basement, attic or wall spaces. Snakes are frequently found under kitchen appliances where it’s comfortable and safe. It’s a great place to spot a mouse scurrying by as well. Outside, piles of debris, rock walls or stacks of firewood also provide safe spots for snakes.

Can I trap and remove a snake myself?

It is not advised. For many reasons this is a job best left to a professional. A professional has the knowledge to effectively identify likely entry points, nesting areas and food sources making trapping and removal more effective and efficient. With the proper equipment and know-how, a professional can reduce the chance of a painful and potentially dangerous snake bite. A wildlife specialist can correctly determine if the snake is poisonous, if it’s an adult female with a nest of eggs or babies that need to be found and removed or a harmless non-venomous snake that has simply lost its way.

The Best Solution….

If you live in the Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky area and have a snake problem, trapping and removal, conducted by an experienced, licensed animal control expert is the only effective, safe solution. Once a snake is removed, your property can be inspected to identify nesting sites and food sources. Professional grade repairs can then be made to eliminate access points.

If a snake has been seen around your house or business, call a licensed professional.
