Remove Snakes from Your House
With a warm climate and many wetland areas, Central Florida has a large number of snakes. Many native species of snakes are important for the local ecosystem in the Orlando area. However, snakes can be very dangerous, poisonous, or not.
Native Florida Snake Species
Some of the common varieties of snakes native to Florida include Indigo snakes, Water snakes, Coachwhip snakes, Rattlesnakes, and Cottonmouths/Moccasins. From a distance slithering across your driveway or yard, all these snakes can look the same. For this reason, we recommend that you do not try to handle or remove these snakes on your own.
Please contact Critter Control® of Orlando to help remove snakes from your home. While many of these snakes are benign and mostly harmless, poisonous species such as Rattlesnakes and Cottonmouths or Moccasins can be deadly if you are bitten.
Non-Native Florida Snake Species
In addition to native snakes, non-native snakes have taken up residence throughout Florida in record numbers.
Many Orlando residents are coming in contact with non-native snake species like Pythons and Boa Constrictors. Many of these snake species were originally brought to Florida as pets, but now live in the wild, and without many natural predators their numbers are increasing. These snakes can grow very large and, like poisonous snakes, pose a serious threat if you come into contact with them.
If you see any variety of Python or Boa Constrictor, please contact Critter Control® of Orlando for assistance in trapping snakes around your home or property. Trying to remove snakes from your Orlando home can be very dangerous.
Because of Florida’s climate and vegetation, snakes are quite common. Many snakes are harmless and can help control the rodent population around your home. Seeing the occasional snake is generally not something to worry about. Seeing too many, or one too often is a problem though. In addition, snakes inside your home can be extremely dangerous.

Why Controlling a Snake Population is so Important
Because it’s not always easy to determine whether a snake is venomous or not, we recommend never trying to handle them yourself. A qualified wildlife specialist will be better trained to safely handle and remove the snake.
Critter Control offers safe and humane snake control for both residential and commercial areas. Our wildlife specialists will come and assess the situation, determining what is attracting the snake to your home or property (e.g., food, shelter, etc.). From there, we’ll humanely remove the snake or snakes and ensure that the habitat is not inviting to snakes in the future.
