Snake control strategies
When you encounter a snake in your home, It might be tempting to take the situation into your own hands and eradicate the pest yourself. However, many Australians are unable to distinguish the dangerous species from the more benign ones which can be potentially disastrous if you or someone in your family get bitten.
Our professional and knowledgeable team at Mr. Termite can help you understand your misunderstood serpentine friend and safely remove them, keeping you and your family safe.
Like many crawlers, snakes that are found inside homes tend to be smaller in size because they are able to sneak in through small cracks and crevases and hide inside your walls or in a dark and cluttered room. However, that doesn’t mean that they should be treated any less seriously. Whether you’re dealing with a petite corn snake or a larger species that requires immediate professional help, Mr. Termite have the experience you can trust.
Tips For Snake Prevention
If you have discovered a snake or two in your property and are wondering why that may be the case, we can offer you a few common reasons.
- Food: Snakes come out during the warmer months in search for food so if you have had a previous infestation of mice or rats then this could attract snakes.
- Shelter: When snakes begin to wander out into your home, they do so in search for food and shelter. These cold blooded creature use the warmth found in rock or concrete walls to heat themselves up before going out and hunting for food.
- Unkept lawn: if you haven’t mowed your lawn in a while, then the long grass can provide snakes the perfect place to hide. Additionally, such grass can attract rodents which will in turn attract snakes.
