Snake Prevention

Local Snake Prevention Professionals

Identifying & preventing a snake infestation

Snakes can enter West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky homes and nest.

Snakes' scaly skin and body muscles work together to help them grip surfaces and slither into buildings.

Snakes may enter your home in search of cool, dark, damp areas or food such as rats and mice. Other things may attract snakes to your home from the outside, including:

  • Leaf & compost piles
  • Landscaping rocks
  • Shrubs & tall grass
  • Lumber/wood piles
  • Bird baths & bird feeders
  • Cracks or holes in the foundation

Garden hoses and tire swings also provide ideal shelter for snakes to hide from predators or keep warm. Luckily, our snake prevention methods are proven effective and cause minimal disruption to apply. We apply granular mixture around homes, cabins, trailers, campsites, and garages. This treatment will last up to one month and is not affected by normal rainfall.

Once treatment is in full effect in the warm months, we offer exclusion services to keep snakes out of and away from your home. We offer free, no-obligation snake prevention estimates in West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky, including Parkersburg, Huntington, Charleston, Portsmouth, Ashland, Saint Albans, Marietta, Lucasville, South Charleston, Beckley, and nearby.

How do I know if I have a snake in my home?

Snake holes in your yard are a common and distinctive sign of snake infestation. They are useful when combating snakes because you know where to look for them.

Other signs of a snake infestation can include:

  • Snake skin: Many snakes shed their skin as they grow.
  • Slither tracks: If you're inspecting a dusty area or crawlspace, you might notice tracks that indicate where a snake has come by.
  • Odor: A lot of snakes have a very distinctive smell.
  • Droppings: Snake droppings are very distinctive.

Snakes are most active in the early mornings on spring and summer days when the sun is warming the earth. Snakes turn in for the evening, sleeping at night, and become sluggish anywhere below 60 degrees° Fahrenheit (16° C). A steady temperature drop is a signal for the snake to enter brumation. Use this knowledge to keep an eye out for snakes in their favorite spots.
