Although most of us are daunted by the idea of a snake encounter, the majority of snakes found in urban or suburban neighborhoods are more startling than actual threats. Still, it is always best to consult a professional if there is a snake on your property.

Are all snakes dangerous?

While not all snakes are venomous, you should consider them dangerous and not approach or touch them. They are wild animals, and will not hesitate to defend themselves if they feel threatened. When they feel startled or hungry, snakes will strike at people or pets, inflicting painful bites that often require medical attention.

Some snakes, however, are more dangerous than others. In addition to their already sharp teeth, venomous snakes have large, hollow fangs that inject venom into mice, voles, and other small prey. Unfortunately, venomous snakes will unleash these fangs on any perceived threats—including you and your loved ones.

If you stumble upon a snake on your property, understanding how to identify venomous and non-venomous snakes is crucial knowledge in case one bites you. Do not approach a snake to identify it; contact PURCOR for assistance immediately.

Non-Venomous vs. Venomous Snakes

Common non-venomous snakes in the United States include rat snakes and garter snakes. They have narrow-shaped heads, and round pupils, and feed on insects, small rodents, and eggs.

Venomous snakes like copperheads, cottonmouths, rattlesnakes, or coral snakes have triangle-shaped heads and more elliptical-shaped pupils.

Where do snakes live?

Snakes prefer dark areas near damp zones and thrive on thick vegetation where it is easy for them to hide and hunt. If you live in an area where snakes are native, and your home is adjacent to hearty vegetation, these scaly critters may be attracted to your property.

 Around homes, snakes prefer dark hiding spots like woodpiles, sheds, debris, or basements. Snakes may enter a yard or a home seeking food or looking for a safe shelter to digest their meal or hibernate during the winter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get rid of snakes myself?

Snakes are dangerous and should be taken seriously if spotted in or around your home or business. Any DIY snake control tips or strategies out there can put an inexperienced person in harm’s way. Contact PURCOR™ Pest Solutions today for effective and efficient snake removal services. We utilize an Integrated Pest Management strategy, including trapping, removal, and exclusion. 

How do you identify a garter snake?

Garter snakes can be identified by their long, slender bodies and their unique color patterns that often include a prominent stripe running down the center of their backs and smaller, parallel stripes on their sides. They come in shades of green, brown, yellow, and blue, but the stripes help distinguish them from other snake species.
Almost all garter snakes are considered harmless as they’re non-venomous to humans and will typically only bite if provoked. While not dangerous themselves, it’s easy to confuse a garter snake with a venomous species of snake, so any snakes should be treated with caution.

What do I do if I find a snake in my yard or in my home?

If you discover a snake inside or outside your home, remain calm and maintain a safe distance so as to not provoke it. Once possible, give the experts at PURCOR a call for professional and dependable snake control services. We can help take care of your issue in a thorough and humane manner while also offering advice and preventive services for the future.
