Snake Control

Unfortunately, snakes are not strangers to humans in most areas of America. People grow up knowing exactly what snakes look like and why they should be avoided. Equipped with long, slender bodies and heightened senses, many snakes have a bite that is far more severe and potent than their bark. Thankfully, not all snakes are lethal and dangerous; there are a variety of non-venomous species of snakes that will not inflict as much damage with their fangs. However, venomous or not, all snakes are wild and most likely unwanted guests inside or near any home. If left alone for too long, a snake could build a nest and lay eggs nearby, resulting in more pests and a more irascible, protective snake to exterminate. With these factors in mind, Pest Mall selected top-notch products to make the customer’s home snake-free.

Difference Between Venomous and Non-Venomous Snakes

The four most common venomous snakes in the US are rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, copperheads, and coral snakes. There is no guaranteed way to tell all venomous snakes apart from all non-venomous snakes since snakes have changed and altered throughout the years to trick both predators and prey. However, there are a few characteristics that are typically excluded to one type. For one, venomous snakes tend to have more triangular heads while non-venomous ones tend to have more ovular heads. Venomous snakes are also infamous for their more “evil” appearance, having intimidating, elliptical pupils as well as small indents on their snouts called “pits.” A few species of venomous snakes have famous, distinct characteristics. The rattlesnake, for example, has a “rattle” at the end of its tail, which will make a loud, clear rattling sound when the rattlesnake is alarmed. Another example is the copperhead, which has an hourglass shape on the top of its head, warning others of its potent venom. However, whether or not a snake is venomous does not matter when encountered outdoors; the correct reaction is always to leave the snake alone and walk away.

How to Get Rid of Snakes

Unfortunately, there are no snake killers or poisons available for sale. Because some snakes are endangered and others protected under state or federal law, most pest control product sellers and manufacturers cannot provide the public with snake poisons. Luckily, there are still general control products available, including glue traps and repellents. Glue traps are effective in controlling small populations of snakes; they will ensnare the snake so it cannot escape until one chooses to either release it or let it die. Some glue traps are covered so that the owner does not have to worry about coming in contact with the snake. Repellents act as more of a preventative measure of pest control. They will repel snakes that that come within a certain radius of the treated area. However, because snake repellents work by interfering with snakes’ senses, including their sense of smell, the repellents may end up repelling wanted creatures as well. They also have been characterized as having an unpleasant, pungent smell that even humans can detect once within a certain range. Despite these downfalls, repellents are still the most effective preventative products that homeowners can use.

Q. snake problem
I live in West Louisiana, Fort Polk area. Last Sept. a timber rattler bit and killed my cocker spaniel as I was walking her on a leash on the road. Needless to say, I am deathly afraid now, even to go in my yard. I keep mothballs surrounding my home, but yesterday I saw a baby rattler at my sidewalk. I am considering this Dr. T's Snake repellent as what I have read this is good, but is it the best and is it dangerous for my little yorkie/scottie mix dog? He is inside as I am so very afraid to let him out at all by himself. I want to plant and work in my flower beds so is this also dangerous to my flowers? Thank you for your help.
A.  

I am deeply sorry for you loss and hope to help prevent and protect your new puppy.

The Dr. T's Snake Repellent is very effective and safe as it uses all natural products. The snakes are repelled by the smell of the granules because it interferes with their sensory reception system.

We recommend that you do a perimeter treatment so that it will be a barrier around the area you wish to prevent the infestation.

It should not be harmful to your pet, however, we can provide you a link to the product label so you can thoroughly read about the product.

Q. garden snake control
Thanks for all of your help. I used the Cyper wp products today, hopefully I will see results soon. I wanted to know if you sell anything for snakes. My mom has been getting snakes in her yard. She does have 5 orange trees, not sure if that matters. She is looking for some type of repellent, something like the repellent for mice and rats if that stuff really works? Thanks again
A.   There is a snake repellent from the Dr. T's nature products called Dr. T's Snake Away Repellent. It is used to repel both venomous and non-venomous snakes and can be applied in bands around the area you will like to protect against snakes. Consider using it as a perimeter/barrier treatment around your home or yard.

Q. Ridding a farm pond of snakes
We have a farm pond lined with large rocks on the damn side. Yesterday, while swimming, my two grandchildren had this black snake with a yellow stripe swim between them. How can I rid this pond of them?
A.   Unfortunately, we do not have any specific items you can put in the water to treat for snakes. It appears that the snakes are in your area because of available food sources such as small fish, salamander, frogs, etc. We do not have items that can target the fish, but we recommend doing a general pest control, treating for the insects near the pond area in order to rid of the food source for salamanders and frogs. Hopefully, this will reduce the snakes' food source, putting your snake problem under control.
