Professional Snake Removal in Colorado
OMNIS provides professional snake removal services for Colorado homes. Our pest control technicians respond rapidly to deal with any immediate problems. Then, we not only capture these nasty reptiles and take them away, but we take steps to ensure they can’t come back.
Do it yourself methods can be ineffective and sometimes even dangerous. Also, there are some legal considerations when getting rid of snakes. All the nonvenomous snakes are protected species. Also, the massasauga snake and the midget rattlesnake are protected. Besides that, DIY snake removal can be an ongoing battle. Yet, with OMNIS to help, you can take care of this issue safely, effectively, and in the long run.
Humane Snake Removal
OMNIS practices humane snake removal methods. We focus on capturing the snake without harming it. Then, we take it away and release it into the wild whenever possible. We always do this job according to Colorado state and local regulations. Humane methods include snake traps and hands-on snake removal. When we’re ready to release it into nature, we take it far enough away that it won’t find it easy to come back.
Identifying and Removing Colorado Snakes
Identifying the type of snakes on your property is the first essential step. According to the Colorado Herpetological Society, there are 25 varieties of snakes that make their home in this state. Some snakes are dangerous, such as the Western Massasauga and the Midget Faded Rattle Snakes; others are just a nuisance. And unless you know a lot about these pests, you may not be able to identify which kind you have. Whether you have an emergency or not, we begin by finding out what types of snakes are causing you problems.
Once we know the type, we can determine the best way to remove it. After the initial snake removal, we inspect your property to find out if other snakes are hiding in your lawn, basement, shed, or garage. We then remove any other snakes we find so that you can feel safe at home again.
Keeping Snakes Out of Your Home
Just like our other pest control services, complete snake removal includes prevention. We’ll inspect your home to find openings where snakes can enter. After that, we’ll identify areas of your property that create a cool, damp environment snakes love. Finally, we’ll help you and make suggestions about how to keep snakes out. Some of these methods include:
- Taking away a cool, damp environment.
- Keeping shrubbery away from your house.
- Putting up a snake fence.
- Seal up openings in your basement, windows, doors, pipes, or crawl space.
Another thing to consider is that snakes need food to survive. So, if you have insects, mice, or rats in your home, you are basically inviting them to dinner. Instead, you can rely on OMNIS Pest Control to get rid of the pests that snakes eat. In the end, you can discourage snakes from ever entering your home.
