Detailed Information

Updated: Oct. 14, 2023, 10:53 p.m. By Rafiki Pest Control LTD.®

Snakes are also called serpents; they are a type of reptiles that have elongated bodies and lack legs. You will find them in almost any part of the world, mainly in forests, deep vegetation, deserts, and water, and in other cases, they harbor in holes and under the rocks in homes.  Most people fear these slithering reptiles and will avoid contact with them at all costs. Snake bites are very dangerous and deadly. Therefore, people must learn how to keep snakes away to avoid a dreadful encounter with them.

Why and When Do Snakes Appear?

Snakes can survive in every corner of the world as long as the environment is favorable for them. However, they avoid extremely cold places as they cannot thrive in such environments. When the temperatures get too chilly, snakes find a place to hibernate like underground, abandoned house structures, cracks, and crevices. 

Snakes will come into your home if there is a good shelter and enough food supply for them. Some species of snakes feed on rodents like rats and mice, slugs, geckos, and frogs. Others like pythons prefer to eat birds like chicken. If you have a domestic animal shed in your yard, you will most likely deal with a snake infestation. The best way to control snakes in your home is by controlling rodents and all other pests. It is best if you call a pest control expert to help you exterminate pests and prevent any chances of snake infestations. 

Where Do Snakes Hide at Home?

Snakes come into your home because there is a good food supply for them. Once they have eaten, snakes are too lazy to move long distances. Therefore, they will look for a safe place to shelter in your compound. The Carpet Pythons, for instance, will curl up in your ceilings where there is good warmth, and they will not be disturbed. Other snakes find it secure to shelter in;

  • Under piles of wood or timber
  • Under sheets of corrugated metal
  • Near window sills
  • Piles of stones/rocks
  • Dense vegetation and grasses
  • In storage boxes or around places clothes
  • In dark, warm places
  • Close to sources of heat like electrical appliances.
  • Stored manure and an organic farm with frequent crop rotation. 

Where Do Snakes Come From? 

If the environment in your home or yard meets all the snakes’ needs, including food, fresh water, and good warmth, they will most likely harbor. You will experience a lot of snake activities, and they will be creating trouble throughout the year. But where exactly do these snakes come from? They are dated millions of years ago, and their habitats are incredibly diverse, from land, thick vegetation, water, and trees. When these habitats become unfavorable to them, they will migrate into your home for a better stay. 

What Do Snakes Eggs Look Like?

You will know how to identify snake eggs with ease once you have learned all their characteristics.  Snakes, like most other reptiles, lay eggs. The female looks for a warm, secure place like underneath a small amount of soil or sand, lays eggs, and abandons them there. Different snake types lay different amounts of eggs from 2-100 at once.   

Unlike those of birds, snake eggs feel leathery and can barely survive much pressure. They have a slightly elongated, oblong shape; in rare instances like in the American snakes, will you find a circular snake egg. When you examine the egg under a bright light, you will be able to identify the silhouette of a snake’s embryo from within. If you notice such eggs in your yard or compound, call a pest control professional immediately because they should be dealt with care by an expert. 

What Do Snakes Bites Look Like?

Snake bites are the major reason why the majority of people fear snakes. Snakes bite people as a defense mechanism or as a way of hunting prey. Of the huge number of snake species today, only a small number have venom. However, snake species that don’t bite their victims attack by squeezing them to death. If a victim unknowingly steps on a snake when working outside or inside the house, the snake responds to such a sudden ‘attack’ by biting. 

Snake bites are mainly distinguished by the appearance of two-puncture bites from the snake’s fangs. Once venom has entered and circulated in the victim’s body, swelling reddens, and extreme pain will be experienced in the bitten area. These symptoms later translate to unclear vision, vomiting, itchy limps, and much sweating.  Fear resulting from a snake bite generates a racing heart and a dizzy-weakly feeling. Extreme effects are subject to the type of snakes;

  • Kidney problems
  • Severe Bleeding                                                         
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Bleeding and death of tissues
  • Respiratory problems
  • Loss of limbs 
  • Other chronic diseases. 

How to Keep Snakes Away From Your Premises?

It is a useful rule of thumb for all home and business owners to be knowledgeable about the efficient methods of keeping snakes away. If these undesirable pests harbor in your compound, they can cause great harm to children and pets. While there is no long-term DIY snake control method, we recommend the following measures for keeping snakes far from your premises.

  • Keep Your Yard and Home Snake-Proof. Often, snakes enter homes by mistake or in search of safe shelter and food like rodents. You can prevent such an infestation by having your whole home and yards inspected for any openings, cracks, and crevices, and have them sealed completely. 
  • Clear Vegetation- Inspect your compound and fencing often to be certain that there are no unnecessary openings. Dispose of garbage and eliminate any miscellaneous plastics and wood to prevent snakes from harboring or hibernating there. All vegetation in the compound and near the fence should be trimmed and kept under watch.
  • Exterminate Rodents and Other Food Sources- This is a very effective method of keeping snakes away. Call a pest control professional to inspect and get rid of all rodent populations that may have infested your premises. Lack of food will discourage snakes, and starvation will kill them or send them away. 

Note: Laboratory tests have shown that secondary poisoning does not kill snakes. Therefore, leaving snakes to die of eating poisoned rodents will not help in snake control. 

  • Contact a Pest Professional for Help- Leaving your snake troubles to experienced professionals is the only long-term and most effective method of snake control. A professional should be able to identify the type of snake causing you trouble, do a safe, thorough search to identify their habitat, and recommend the best type of control to be applied.  

Will Snake Sprays Keep Snakes Away?

If your home or yard seems to be frequented by snakes, you can use snake sprays to keep them away. You must get the most effective snake sprays and spray directly on the snake/snakes for the best results. Snakes hate the smell released by sprays and will keep off a treated area. However, note that snake sprays are not an effective way of controlling snakes and can be dangerous to your family and pets. Such sprays will only send the snakes into hiding, and as soon as the repellent odor is over, they will return.

 Which Snake Treatment Is The Most Effective? 

If you want to exterminate and keep snakes away from your home completely, you must seek help from a professional pest control expert. As seen above, snake sprays cannot control or get rid of snakes completely. Our technicians will visit your home, embark on a keen inspection to ascertain the infestation level, and find out what could be attracting snakes into your home. After that, they will recommend the best course of treatment and advise you on tricks and ways of keeping snakes away from your premises completely. 

Whether poisonous or non-poisonous, snakes are dreaded by most homeowners. The risk associated with them can be very grievous hence; if you see a snake in your yard, it is only safe to call a pest control expert to handle the situation with the professionalism demanded.
