Professional pest control experts have the right tools and training to safely remove the snake from your property, and take the animal back to its natural habitat.
Just the thought of snakes can instill a deep fear in a lot of people. But, no matter if that fear exists or not, finding one in your home is bound to create a bit of panic and anxiety. B & D Pest Solutions LLC is at your disposal with professional wildlife removal services that can keep you and your family safe.
Here are 4 steps to take if you find a snake on your property to ensure you safely get over this incident.
Don’t Panic, Don’t Attack
A snake won’t usually attack you unless it feels threatened, so resist the urge to poke it or try to remove it with a stick, broom, or any other tool you think may help. It’s also important to keep calm and not scream, as this may scare the snake and make it behave erratically.
When you see the snake, step away so that there is a safe distance between the two of you, and keep your eyes on it.
Remove Children or Animals
If you have kids or pets next to you, take them as far away from the snake as possible. No matter if you assess the situation to be safe, children and pets can be unpredictable in their behavior, so the safest thing to do in this situation is to put as much distance between them and the snake as possible.
Minimize Its Options, If Possible
If you find the snake outside, in your yard, be sure to close all the windows and doors in your home to prevent the snake from getting in. They may not have any legs, but they can move pretty quickly and have a knack for hiding themselves pretty easily.
If the snake’s in your home, close off that room to make sure you keep the snake in place. If you can, keep an eye on the snake, as it may try to hide.
Call Professional Pest Control
Not all snakes are venomous, but even if you think you’ve identified the snake correctly, it’s best not to handle its removal yourself. For one thing, you could easily make a mistake. Professional pest control experts have the right tools and training to safely remove the snake from your property, and take the animal back to its natural habitat.
Remember, in New Jersey, all snakes are protected under the Endangered and Nongame Species Conservation Act, and it’s illegal to kill or collect any native snake species. The law is clear the snake must be trapped and relocated.
