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.
Common Florida Snakes
There are several different types of snakes roaming Florida, both venomous and not.
Common snake varieties include:
- Water snakes
- Indigo snakes
- Coachwhip snakes
- Boa Constrictors
Controlling a Snake Population
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 of Orlando 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.
If snakes are setting up shop in your Central Florida home, call Critter Control of Orlando today at 407.295.7194 for your free home inspection.
